I am traveling from minneapolis (MSP) to copenhagen (CPH) in Juky, 2017, we transfer planes at AMS. Is one hour 10 min enough time to transfer, will our luggage go straight through?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, your bags will go through to Copenhagen
Is 1 hour 25 minutes sufficient transfer time from a flight arriving AMS from Budapest to another Delta codeshade AMS to Detroit?
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I' ll arrive in Amsterdam coming from Stuttgart ( KLM ) After 50 minutes I have a connection flight to Newark. How far is the way from the arriving terminal to my departure gate (Delta ) ?
Amsterdam has only one terminal. All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'll be flying from DOH to AMS in a couple of days. I have a succeeding flight after a few hrs on a different airline.

How long does getting the luggage from the belt usually take on a verage? (non-schengen to schengen)
what is the central security system i heard of of schiphol? does this take much more time? thank you!
In Amsterdam you used to go through security at your gate which was hugely inefficient. Now passengers entering the airport in Amsterdam or connecting passengers that have to go through security do so at large centralized checkpoints like a normal airport.
I am taking a flight from BHX (Birmingham) to AMS, then from AMS to Minneapolis.

The flight from BHX to AMS is with KLM, and then the flight from AMS to MSP is with Delta.

Will I have to recheck my baggage at AMS?
No, all you have to do in Amsterdam is go through US Security questions and to your departure gate.
You're awesome, thank you so much for the help, not only for me but for everyone else here :)

I should be able to make my connection, its 1h50m layover at AMS?

Thank you so much :)
taking train to burssels, how i will get the main station. thanks
I am arriving from Atlanta on Delta and need to catch KLM flight to Prague. Do I just go from arrival to departure gate or do I have to go through Passport Control?
You will go through Passport control in Amsterdam since that is where you are entering the Schengen Area.
We are flying from Amsterdam to Philadelphia on Saturday Aug 6. Our flight is at 10:45a. We have not flown from AMS before. Please let us know how early to arrive at the aiport and if any tips we should know. Thanks!
Get there between 8 and 8:30.
I am an Indian national holding a business visit visa to the UK. I'm transiting through AMS and it's a 1hr 55min lay over. My initial carrier from India to AMS will be Jet Airways and from AMS to UK will be by KLM. And thus I may need to change from Terminal 3 to terminal 2 for the change of planes.

Do I need to get a transit visa for this, and will this 1hr 55min layover be sufficient for a transit ?
Amsterdam only has one Terminal. If you are holding a UK visa then you don't need a Schengen Transit Visa. You have enough time.
Thank You ..!!
