Are OVB & IKT considered being in Asia?

Question is asked in the context of xONEx booking.
I want to transit at either of these airports (without Visiting Visa, don't think I need one) on way to NRT.

So are they in Asia?

Has anyone transited at either of these airports, if so, what was your experience like at the airports? TIA.

They're considered Asia, but IKT doesn't have an international transit area, so if you arrive, you'll need a transit visa. I don't think this applies at OVB as they do have an international transit area.

For reference, I've copied the relevant paragraphs about the defination of Asia for xONEx fares from the current rule sheet: http://assets.ctfassets.net/m9ph4qva...rer_1Apr19.pdf
