  • Layover issue same airline, 2 tickets

    We land at 7:15AM (March 2017) in AMS from Washington DC on KLM, we are looking to book a flight at 8:25AM to Basel, is that enough time? Will we go thru customs and passport control in AMS? We may fly KLM or easy jet, KLM told us 2 different stories about if we need to pick up and re check our bags, some agents said no since they are both KLM flights and others told us yes because they are 2 different tickets/reservations, does anyone know?

     

    Yes, you will go through Passport control in AMS. If you show your Basel confirmation on KLM to the KLM agent in Washington, they should be willing to check your bags through to Basel. In that case you won't have to claim them in AMS. If you fly Easyjet to Basel you will have to claim them in AMS.

     

    Thank you ZAP. Will an hour be enough time to get thru passport control in AMS if KLM in Washington is willing to check our bags through to Basel?

     

    Yes, that would be just enough time.

     

    Thank you for your help!
