  • Is this enough time?

    I'm flying from Glasgow to Amsterdam then on to Hamburg, however is 40 minutes enough time to get through any checks then to my next flight? I'll be taking a carry on bag only and any info about the checks you go through between connecting flights would be great. Thanks

     

    Just to add, both flights will be with klm and I wanted to check if this was long enough before booking

     

    That should be enough time. You will go through schengen passport control when you enter the schengen pier of the terminal.

     

    Thank you for that!

    1 1/2 hour layover in Amsterdam. Flying Delta Portland, OR to Edinburgh. Will I need to go through customs? Do I have enough time?

     

    You will not go through Immigration or Customs in Amsterdam as you will not be entering the Schengen area. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.

    I am getting the 18:05 flight from Washington IAD to Amsterdam AMS, due to arrive at 7:20. My flight from AMS to NCL starts boarding at 7:30 but does not depart until 8:20, is this enough time? Will I have to go through security and customs?

     

    I should note - both flights are on KLM, departing flight to Newcastle is from gate D05, but I do not know what my arrival terminal in Amsterdam is...

     

    All KLM flights in Amsterdam are in the same terminal. You will have to go through security at your departure gate but will not have to go through passport control or customs since you will not be entering the Schengen area. You will go through UK Immigration and Customs when you get to Newcastle.

     

    Also, you should have enough time.

    I am arriving from Chicago and transferring to Strasbourg We are on KLM and transferring to Klm cityhopper Are they in the same terminal?

     

    Yes, they will be in the same terminal. Just follow signs to your departure gate. You will go through schengen passport control when you enter your departure pier.

     

    Thanks That was very helpful

    I will be flying from Delhi, India to Atlanta, US with KLM. What are the formalities that I will be subjected to? On an average how long will it take for me to go through those procedures and take my connecting flight given that I will be flying during the holiday period?

     

    You will just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security. You should have enough time.

    I am flying from SFO to BUD with a 1 hr layover in AMS. Is this enough time to make it for the connection flight? Do I need to go through passport control? Also, would my baggages make it on time fro the connection flight?

     

    You will go through Schengen passport control when you enter the Schengen pier of the terminal. You and your baggage should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Flying from Rome to US with 90 min layover at AMSTERDAM. What is the process for baggage, passport etc... Thanks!

     

    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go through schengen exit passport control and then go through security at your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.

    We fly Into AMS from MInneapolis, USA on Delta and connect to another Delta flight on to Rome. Will we need to collect baggage or will it be transferred to next flight for us? Will we go thru passport control or customs? Thanks!

     

    Your flight to Rome will be operated by Alitalia or KLM, not Delta. You will not have to do anything with your baggage. You will go through passport control when you enter the Schengen Pier of the terminal.

    Arriving from Tel Aviv on KLM, departing for Atlanta on Delta. Layover is 55 min. Will I make it on time for Atlanta flight? Flights purchased on one ticket. Thank you!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. As you won't be entering the Schengen Area you won't have to go through Passport Control in AMS, just security at your departure gate.

     

  • Is my layover time enough?

    My parents are travelling from Minneapolis to New Delhi via Amsterdam on Delta flight. They will be arriving on DL 260 in Amaterdam and leaving on KL 871. Their layover time is 50 mins. My question is- do they need to re check in baggage and go through security/passport check? And is this time enough? I'm pretty worried about whether they can make it. Thanks

     

    No, since they will not be entering the Schengen area they will not have to do anything with their baggage or go through passport control. All they have to do is go from their arrival gate to their departure gate and go through security. They should have enough time.

     

    Thank you! Your help is deeply appreciated

     

  • Arriving from Dehli continuing to Glasgow

    On October 25th I'm arriving on a KLM flight from Dehli at 8.20am and have a connection to an easyjet flight to Glasgow at 10am (the only flight that day). As I understand the procedure, I'll need to collect my bag from KLM & transfer from Non-Schengen to Schengen terminal and re-check in my bags to easyjet (I have an e-ticket & have online checked in). Will 1hr 40 mins be enough time?

     

    It will be possible but difficult to make that connection. Prepare for the possibity of having to take a train or waiting until the next day.

    I am flying KLM from Barcelona to Amsterdam and I have a connecting flight on a non-codeshare airline to Lagos, 3 hrs after my arrival in Amsterdam. This means I have to go from Schengen to Non-Schengen and I claim and re-check my luggage. Is this enough time? Thanks for your help.

     

    That should be enough time.

    Hello, I am flying easyjet between Edinburgh and Amsterdam, and then delta from Amsterdam to Minneapolis. I'm assuming I need to go thru passport control to the baggage claim hall, then get my bags, check them with delta/klm and go back thru immigration? I have 4.5 hours but want to confirm that it what I need to do. Thank you!

     

    Yes, you have the procedure correct.
