I have a question who answer i couldn’t find.
Where the passengers are going esspecially in a boarding and a deboaring , i suppose the Airports are on floors so for arrivals passengers are deboarded in a floor and boardings are made in another floor , right ?
Not IF related
It all comes down to the specific airport, as every airport is different.
The passengers are deboarded back to the place their gate/boarding was. This is to ensure that no passengers go missing, so that they can depart as soon as possible. This happened to me many times…
Unless you’re flying internationally and have to go through customs. There’s usually a separate corridor for this on a lower level.
Its different in every airport and terminal.
Can be two different floors, one combined floor or two doors to the apron in my experience.
In the United States, if you are arriving from the United States or Canada, you deboard into the departure hall as you don’t have to clear customs (flights from Canada clear U.S. customs before security in Canada). International flights usually deboard to the departures level but are separated from departures and take an escalator up or down one level to clear customs, note when boarding that sometimes you walk through two sets of doors with escalators between them. Sometimes the jetway splits at the bottom of the fixed section and goes both up to the gate and down to a lower level to clear customs, a good example of this is Cancun.
I hope that was detailed enough but not too complicated!
