  • New to Schengen, non-Schengen, Can you help?
    Mar 4, 2015

    In March will arrive from TPE to connect to BEG, and my return is from BEG to connect to IAD. Need I collect luggage to recheck in addition to passport control, security etc. both ways? Thank you!

     

    Assuming each of your connections in AMS were purchased together (ie TPE-AMS-BEG is on one ticket and BEG-AMS-IAD is on one ticket), You will not have to collect your baggage in AMS on any connection. Since you will not be entering the Schengen Area on any of these flights either, you will not have to go through passport control. You will just go through security.

    Hi, I will be transiting AMS from Oslo to Atlanta, US with 55 mins. Will this be time enough?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Schengen exit passport control but AMS is built for short connections.

    In May, I am flying from Boston on Delta to Cologne via Amsterdam. My layover is only 50 minutes. Do I have to go thru passport control or do I proceed immediately to my gate? I am not checking luggage.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through passport control and security. This connection is still possible if your first flight is on-time but leaves very little time to spare if there is a delay.

     

  • Passport check before non-Schengen gates D

    I will have to transfer from a non-Schengen flight (gates H) to a flight to Bucharest in a non-Schengen gate D27. I read there is a passport control before D gates, but can't find if it is also in the way to the downstairs non-Schengen D gates. Will I have to wait at the passport control for these gates? Thanks.

    In june we will be flying from Minneapolis to Venice with change at AMS with only 55 minutes. We think that is too close for the connection. Is luggage checked clear through from MSP to Venice. Is 55 minutes calling it too close?

     

    Yes, you won't have to claim your baggage in AMS. You should have enough time. AMS is made for close connections.

    Hello, I'm flying from Naples, IT to AMS and then on to the USA. Is a 1h 15m layover enough time? Will we need to claim and recheck bags? Thank you!

     

    All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit passport control, walk to your departure gate, and go through security. Nothing with your bags. You should have enough time.

    I am planning a trip with KLM airlines from Oslo to Lima through Amsterdam. I am wondering if 1h 25 min transfer time at AMS is enough to catch my flight to Lima?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    Hi there! My route is YYC-AMS-LHR on KLM. I have 1:45 in between flights. Will this be enough time? Will I have to clear customs, collect my luggage? Any info would be great! Thanks :)

     

    No, you will not have to go through passport control or do anything with your luggage as you will not be entering the Schengen Area. you only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security. You have enough time.

    hi, i will landed in AMS from DXB with Emirates and depart from AMS to MAD with Iberia. Will i go through immigration control in AMS? thank you!

     

    Yes, you will go through Schengen passport control in AMS since you will be flying a within-Schengen flight.

     

    hi ZAP thanks for your reply! what if i'm flying with KLM to AMS and then Iberia to South America (but with layover in MAD)? Since as i'm aware that KLM and Iberia are in the same concourse in AMS - by this i'm hoping to not go through passport control.

    Flying any Schengen to Schengen route you will need to go through Schengen passport control. If you do not want to go through Schengen passport control you will have to find a route to Bogota that does not involve a within-Schengen flight. I'm assuming you already hold a DXB-AMS ticket on Emirates and this is why you are asking. Your only options are to fly somewhere else in Schengen, connect in the US (in which case I'm guessing you would need a US Transit Visa), or connect way out of your way, like in Sao Paulo, Lima, or Quito. KLM flies AMS-Panama City (PTY) nonstop. See if that works. Panama has a very liberal transfer policy for foreign nationals.

     

    Also, KLM begins nonstop Amsterdam-Bogota service on March 31.

     

    You may want to also look into connecting in Aruba, Curacao, or Havana.

     

    So are you saying if i landed with Emirates in AMS and go to PTY with KLM, i dont need to go thru customs?

     

    Correct.

     

    Oh yeah, the other requirement is that you either need to have no checked baggage or will need to have your baggage checked through to PTY in DXB.

    is 65 minutes enough time to transfer from an Aberdeen arrival gate to a Tokyo departure gate with a KLM through ticket.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

  • Transfer from Easy Jet to Delta

    I will arrive on Easy Jet at 08:15 and depart on Delta at 10:25. I plan to check my bag on both flights, which are booked under separate tickets. Will I have enough time for the transfer? What terminals to Easy Jet and Delta use?

     

    Amsterdam only has one terminal. you will just have to claim your bag from Easyjet and take it to the Delta check-in counter. You should have enough time if your easyjet flight is on-time and your bag comes out quickly.

    I will travel by KL 622 from Atlanta (ATL) to AMS and my connecting flight is after one hour to Delhi by KL 871. What are the arrival and del. gate numbers and whether one hour lay over time is enough ?

     

    You won't know exact gate numbers until the day of your trip. All you have to do in AMS is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security there. You have enough time.

    Where is a good place for people arriving at the airport on a United flight and a Delta flight to meet to go into the City together?

     

    You will use the same immigration hall, so you can meet in the immigration hall at one of your flight's baggage claims.

     

  • Distance between KLM and Delta terminals?

    After arriving on a KLM flight from OSLO, I need to meet a Delta flight arriving from Boston. What is the proximity of the KLM Terminal to the Delta Terminal at Schiphol Amsterdam? Easy or difficult? Thank You

     

    Amsterdam only has one terminal. You will go through schengen exit passport control and just walk to your gate and then go through security. Everything is pretty close together.

     

    Thank you very much!

    How long to transfer from the train to a delta flight

     

    Leave at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours.
