Swampy Transfer

04 September 2017 - 02:29

Flying into Swampy later this month but have a flight booked on a different airline to Singapore about 3 hours later.


Will I need to pass through immigration to collect my bag then check in again and go through immigration to board my flight?

I have been getting mixed responses.

I haven't but seems it has become a very lucrative industry and as always profits take priority over everything else.

Barcelona terror attack leaves bodies lying all over Las Ramblas.  Van ploughs into crowd in Las Ramblas

At least 13 people are dead and 100 are injured after a van mounted a pavement and ploughed into pedestrians in Barcelona's historic Las Ramblas district.

Catalan police have confirmed they have arrested two men in relation to the incident, which is being treated as a terror attack.
Catalonia regional head Carles Puigdemont said 100 people had been hospitalised.
The regional interior department said 15 of those were seriously injured, another 23 were moderately wounded and 42 people were lightly wounded.
"Unfortunately the number of fatalities will likely rise," Catalonia's regional interior chief Joaquim Forn said.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack via its Amaq propaganda arm.

Catalonian police are investigating claims that the documents of Driss Oukabir Soprano were stolen by his brother and it was his brother, 18 year old Moussa Oukabir, who could have been involved in the Barcelona attack.
In the past few hours a man claiming to be Driss Oukabir Soprano went to the local police Mossos d’Esquadra in the town of Ripoll, where he resides, and reported the theft of his documentation.
The mayor of Ripoll, Jordi Munell, told La Vanguardia; “The man who has appeared as Driss Oukabir has explained to the police that when he saw his photograph in the media he went to the police station and explained there that his document had been stolen, as well as clarified that at the time of the attack he was in Ripoll.’’
The police now suspect Oukabir’s younger brother Moussa Oukabir, 18, who lives in Barcelona is involved in the attack and left Driss Oikabir’s documents in the van used to mow down pedestrians.


Meet The Avatars

Great documentary on AI ..... worth a watch. Have added rink but not sure which countries you can view.

Imagine you could make a copy of a loved one. A digital clone with a life of its own – their Avatar. That’s the dream of biomechanical engineer, Dr Jordan Nguyen, and he says we have the technology to do it right now in the form of Virtual Reality.

VR might be thought as way to play games but as Jordan discovers, it’s so much more. VR is being used to face phobias, to combat trauma and in the case of one Newcastle man, Angus, help to re-verse the effects of a catastrophic spinal injury.
