Hi fellow travelers and experts,
I am planning to book Istanbul-Cairo flights with Aegean/Olympic Air with either 6h or 12 h layover at Athens. The ATH airport map on Aegean website shows travelers from Extra-Schengen origin (IST) to Extra-Schengen destination (CAI) need to pass through passport control.Will I need airport transit visa for this transfer if I limit myself within the transit area? Please advise me if you know anything about such transfers. I have an Indian Passport and we need Schengen visa to enter Greece.
When I traveled through SVO (Moscow), I passed through one such Passport Control but there the officer just verified the Passport.
I wrote to Aegean but their reply was not at all specific to my query. I also wrote an email to Hellenic Police Passport Control Duty Officer and Greek Embassy but they have not replied yet.
