My mother will be flying from tel aviv (Israel) to amsterdam and will fly from there to Seattle (USA). There is only one hour layover. We know her departure gate is at E terminal but still do not know at which terminal she will arrive in. Is one hour enough time to transfer from one gate to the next?
1 hr seems to be extremely tight, as you will have to go through Netherlands' customs procedures first. The passenger terminal at AMS has everything under one roof. The arrivals level on level 1 is marked as 'Arrivals 1' through 'Arrivals 4': Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. The Departures level on level 2 has Departure areas 1, 2 & 3, corresponding Lounges 1 to 4 (Lounge 1 is the Schengen lounge - you are non-Schengen (foreign), and Gate areas B-C, D, E, F, G-H, & M. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates.
