  • enough time to make connecting flight?
    Mar 29, 2017
    I fly klm Dublin to Amsterdam and then have 1hr 35mins to connect with klm flight to Beijing. Is that enough time to make connection? Thankyou.


    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • SEA to BCN
    Mar 28, 2017
    I have 1 hour and 30 minute layover going from Seattle to Barcelona, connecting in Amsterdam. Is this enough time? (This is all booked on the same reservation). Is the same layover time adequate for a flight going from Seattle to London and connecting in Amsterdam (1.5 hour connection time and on the same reservation)? Thank you


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, I am landing tomorrow from Madrid to Amsterdam at 8:40 with KLM and I have a connecting flight to Zagreb at 9:20 with KLM as well. Is that enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control in Amsterdam.

    Hi! I'm flying YYC (Calgary, Canada) to AMS with KLM. We arrive at 8:20 and then our next flight to KGL departs at 9:55 also with KLM. Will that be enough time? We will have checked bags.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I have a klm flight arriving ams 1:35 p.m., and another klm flight, on same reservation, departing for dtw at 3 p.m. Is that adequate time to transfer?


    Yes, that is enough time.

    I will be flying KLM from PRG connecting in AMS then on DL to SEA. First, I will be on 2 different tickets with no checked bags. How long should I allow for connecting in AMS. I am looking at connections at around 1 hour 45. When do I clear customs? I am guessing Seattle? Thank you for any help.


    You will go through Schengen Exit passport control in Amsterdam and US Immigration and Customs in Seattle. You can get your Delta boarding pass from the transfer desk in Amsterdam if you can't get it online. You should have enough time.


  • Connectionflight
    Mar 25, 2017
    I will arrive in Amsterdam at 12.30 coming from Stuttgart with KL 1870. I will connect to Newark at 13.20 with KL 6179 ( operated by Delta ) How far is the wY from gate to gate and do I have to go through security again? Are 50 minutes enough to connect? Thank you


  • Connecting from United to Vueling
    Mar 24, 2017
    We plan to arrive on United from Houston at 920am then connecting to a Vueling flight to Lisbon departing at 1055am. I work for United so we will be standby on the United portion than confirmed on Vueling on a separate reservation. Is this enough time to connect? Thank you.


    With no checked bags you barely have a chance if you check in online for your Vueling flight and run.


  • Customs

    We will be arriving from US on KLM at 9:15am and connecting with Air France (operated by KLM) at 12:30pm to Marseille. Will we nee to go through customs?


    You will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Amsterdam. You have plenty of time.


  • Connecting to VNO
    Mar 23, 2017
    Hi, Is 2 hours sufficient to do this transfer, DTW - AMS - VNO DTW-AMS (Delta) and AMS-VNO (Air Baltic). Do I need to collect the checked baggage at AMS for customs? Thank you.


    Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?


    It is one reservation


    Then no, you do't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam and you have enough time.


    Thank you. So I guess that if two separate reservations, 2 hours may not be enough as I have to collect and recheck the bags.


  • IST to MSP via AMS
    Mar 22, 2017
    Is 2 hrs sufficient for the following transfer: coming into AMS from IST, departing from AMS to MSP? It's been awhile since I've passed through AMS.


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Customs and Layover Time?
    Mar 22, 2017
    I'm traveling from Detroit to Cape Town, South, Africa with 2 hour layover time at KML. I have three questions...1) Since my ultimate destination is in Africa, will I need to go through immigration AND customs? 2) If the answer is yes to the question above, will I have time to do all that, retrieve luggage and walk from terminal to terminal ?


    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Amsterdam only has one terminal.


  • Atlanta to Delhi, India via Schiphol
    Mar 20, 2017
    Will 1 Hr and 20 Min be enough time to connect from flight arriving from on KLM with a connection onward to Delhi, India on Jet Airlines? Will I have to go through security or immigration at AMS between flights?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Amsterdam.


    Thanks for the quick response. These will be on the same reservation as code shares booked through delta. Flights nbrs DL136 from ATL to AMS and then DL7534 from AMS to DEL. so sounds like no security just go from gate to gate.


  • Manchester UK to Marseille France via Schipol
    Mar 19, 2017

    Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Flying CWL to seattle via schipol
    Mar 14, 2017
    Flying KL1058 City Hopper to Schipol and then onwards by KLM6033 (Delta Airlines operated) on 25/4/17. Just been advised flight out from schipol is 20 mins early leaving us 1Hr 20 min to transfer. Is this enough time to comfortably go between gates and do all the checks before the boarding time allotted. what gates do the one flight land at and the second flight take off from.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through US Security questions and to your departure gate. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight.
