passenger is given a boarding card (pass) to be produced at the departure gate and to the stewardess boarding the plane.

Passengers can make a stopover in an international airport; they must announce it booking the reservation. The sto- pover is marked in the ticket. The time of the stopover must not exceed the time of validity of the ticket. Passengers with transit tickets must register them at the change-over airport not later than one hour after the arrival.
