SQ436/435 turnaround at Dhaka possible?

Hey all,

Does anyone have experience of doing a DAC turnaround? I'm not entirely convinced the 1h 15min turnaround time is feasible. Any info would be helpful, i.e return boarding pass issued at SIN, airbridges, security checks, visa req for transit pax etc... cheers

BTW I did check in the MR forum but the info was from 2007

I did a turnaround at DAC on TG 2 years ago (see trip report). I'm not sure exactly how long a transit time I had, probably 90 minutes give or take.

That was long enough, even with a quick lounge visit. However, the transit facilities are almost non-existant. Since I was unable to get a return BP (I don't know if SQ has the same issue or if it has changed in the past 2 years), and there is no airside check in facility someone had to go landside to check me in. I didn't need a visa.

In my experience TG has a higher tolerance than SQ for odd itineraries (incl turnarounds). It is possible SQ may deny boarding if you have no visa.
