Later this month, my family and I (all adults) are traveling from NYC-JFK to Malta via Turkish Airlines with a connection at Istanbul's Ataturk airport. I am trying to figure out the following in advance:
1) Do we have go through passport control & security again after arriving in Istanbul?
2) Do we have to claim our checked-in luggage at Ataturk Airport and have re-checked for the segment?
We have layer-overs of 2:30 (to) and 3:55 (from).
Sorry if the questions seem silly but it has been a while since I made connection in Europe.
Thanks for your help.
