Airside transfer possible at Prague?

Not really a BA question - but BA FTers will know the answer!

In three weeks I will be arriving at PRG from DOH. HBO on a J tkt. Two hours later I am due to fly on to BRS on Easyjet.

Is it possible to make an airside transfer within the non Schengen terminal? Or do I have to go through passport control, security etc??

And any other tips for making the transition from Qatar business to the orange bus? :-)

Thanks in advance!

Security is at the gate in PRG, so I'm pretty sure you'll arrive into the main terminal (what I mean by this is that on arrival you’ll find yourself in the departures area, which is used by arriving and departing passengers, and contains shops and restaurants, as well as access to the gates and to the exit).

There will be no immigration as you're non-Schengen to non-Schengen and then you'll have security at the gate.

I havenít done this, but last year travelled through Prague twice - a few days there before a QR trip via DOH, and an overnight before returning to the UK.

As far as I can remember, security was done at the gate in both cases. So you should be able to change from one gate to another without any problems.

You'll be fine. At PRG, non-Schengen flights are discharged directly into the terminal, and as others have stated, security is at the gate.
Immigration is on the way towards baggage claim, not between gates.

I'm pretty sure everything about this post is wrong

PRG is one of those airports where departing and arriving passengers mingle airside, hence security at the gate. But... the terminal is split between Schengen and non-Schengen. Although itís one big building, itís split into a nominal Terminal 1 and 2. As youíre arriving from DOH (non Schengen) and departing to BRS (also non-Schengen) you should be in the correct part of the terminal to make this easy for you.
Iím assuming youíre HBO and can get a mobile BP for your EZY flight.

This thread has been moved from the BA forum to Europe, as it has nothing whatsoever to do with BA.

About every airport I have passed through in Europe mingles departing and arriving passengers airside for most flights. This does not usually lead to security at the gate...

Yes, though it's only passengers on flights arriving from EU/EEA/Switzerland (and US?) that get to mingle.
