I landed in Bologna, but I have to continue to another destination: can I use the transfers area?
If you arrive from a Schengen destination, have hand luggage only and leave for a Schengen or non-Schengen destination, you can use the transfers area and directly access the boarding area to leave again. Access to the transfers area is located as soon as you enter the airport, in the first arrivals hall: use the automatic door on the right (signs: TRANSITI / FLIGHT CONNECTION / TRANSFERS).
If you arrive from a non-Schengen destination, whether you continue to a Schengen or a non-Schengen destination, you cannot use the transfers area, but you must carry out police checks to exit the arrivals area and then go up to the first floor of the Terminal to carry out security checks and enter the boarding hall, like all the other passengers.
Attention: if you have checked baggage and fly with Ryanair or with two different companies that do not send baggage to the final destination, you cannot use the transfers area, as you have to collect the checked baggage.Airport miscellaneous
