If you’ve booked on a single ticket, then the connecting procedure is super easy. There might be multiple flights, one after another, but they have been booked as one. After you’ve checked in your baggage, it will be passed between flights automatically, ready for you to pick-up when you land after your final flight. When you land after flight one, all you’ll have to do is disembark and move through the airport to the gate of your next flight departure. You won’t need to do anything regarding your baggage.
However, sometimes it’s not possible to do this, especially a connecting flight with a low cost airline. You’ll need to pick-up your luggage, then check it in again for the next flight.
