Exclamation Dubai Luggage Issues

Hi Guys

Have a (rather complicated) flight booked from NYC-LON-DXB with British Airways. After this, I need to catch a separately ticketed flight to Maldives around 12 hours later with a different carrier/

Problem is that flight is with a different carrier (Oman Air) and as per my research, they don't have an interline agreement with BA, so i don't think i can through check? I'll try my luck at checkin but not hopeful.

How would I go about rechecking baggage at DXB without leaving the airport, as I don't have a VISA. Is this possible?

Thanks for your help.

Jassa84,

Firstly welcome to FT and the EK Forum. I'm not sure I can help you as we purposely talk about all things related to EK. I'm not familiar with Oman Air nor their interline arrangements, but some of our regular, DXB based members might.

You might want to try the Middle East Airline forum as well.

Good luck...

You won't be able to collect the bags and re-checkin without clearing immigration. Why don't you try getting a transit visa.
