With one transfer, on average, fly sixteen to eighteen hours, provided that a short docking is planned (from forty minutes to two hours). With two transplants, travel time can take up to thirty-four hours. This is quite tiring, especially for travelers with children. But there is one positive point. During long (more than four hours) docking, the airline is obliged to provide travelers with a hotel. And this means that there is a chance to go outside the airport and see a new country. But this is possible only where there is a visa-free entry for Russians or there is an opportunity to deliver an instant transit visa at the airport, which is valid up to thirty-six hours. Flight with two transplants can be convenient for those who are not limited in time of rest and do not fly to Cuba for a standard two weeks.
