What is an Offline Connection?

An offline connection, in airline parlance, is a connection between two different carriers that is a change of planes which also requires a change of carriers.

An offline connection can be a change of carriers resulting either from tickets purchased separately or tickets purchased at one time for airlines that do not share an interline agreement.

More on Offline Connections

An offline connection differs from an interline connection, where a passenger buys a ticket from one airline for all segments, including those on other carriers. In an offline connection, baggage will not go all the way through to the final destination; it must be picked up during the stopover and checked with the next airline.
