In October I'm going to a trip from Riga via Athens to Santorini, from Riga to Athens by AirBaltic and from Athens to Santorini by Aegean Airlines (so the flights are not "connected flights" and have separate e-tickets). Time between flights is going to be 1 hour and 50 minutes - 1 hour and 20 minutes to get to Aegean Airlines check-in.
- Do I have to go to the arrival zone and "out" when I arrive at Athens to make another check-in or can I make check-in in the passengers' zone? (In case I have only hand baggage.)
- Is it possible to get from one flight to the other in time when after landing I have to get back my given-away baggage?
Of course I have more time if I have had hand baggage only through these flights but may be my friend is going to take some extra things for him that can't be put in the hand baggage...
I've been in Athens airport before but not with not connected flights. I have absolutely no idea how big this airport is or how to manage my flights. :(
(Sorry for mistakes in my English.)
