What is a technical stop?

When a plane needs to refuel or perform another maintenance operation, it usually makes a technical stop. In these cases, the company neither boards nor disembarks passengers because it doesn't have traffic rights at the airport in question. On certain occasions where the captain considers it necessary for safety reasons, you may be asked to leave the plane and wait in the transit area of the airport until the refuelling operation has finished.
