  • 70 min layover

    I am going from Minneapolis to Amsterdam, and then from AMS to Delhi. My Layover is only 70min in Amsterdam, will that be enough time to make it to the next flight?? Thanks

     

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

    Is it enough to make it and are there additional security screenings other than the US interview and passport control?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. I'm assuming that since you asked about US Interview that you are flying to the US.

     

    Exactly. Flying HAJ-AMS-MSP with 1hr connecting time in AMS. Found differnt information about a security screening while transfering Schengen-Non-Schengen in AMS. Some say only passport and documents at Delta, other also say security screening. So I'm a little worried about making the connection..

     

    You will not have to go through security (bag x-ray) and metal detector since you are coming from another EU country in Amsterdam. You will just go through Schengen exit passport control and security questions.

    I'm looking at a flight that includes a British airways flight from London to AMS and then an Air Canada flight to Toronto. With Canadian passports. Will 2 hours and 10 minutes be enough time to connect?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation that should be enough time.

     

    Yes they are on the same ticket from Expedia. What procedure do I have to do in terms of customs and security. Sorry for asking im just very new to connecting flights.

     

    No customs since you won't be entering the Schengen Area, and no security since you're coming from a country with approved security procedures. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am travelling on KLM from Malaysia (KUL) to Stockholm (ARN) via Amsterdam. The transfer time is 50 minutes in AMS - is this sufficient time? Thank you.

     

    It's possible but doesn't leave any time to spare for delays.

     

    Thanks very much for the quick response!

    One hour is enough time? What are the steps I need to go through Thank you

     

    You will have to go through Security, US Security questions, and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I am returning to the US from Edinburgh via Amsterdam, and I only have 1.5 hour layover between AMS and the US. Is that enough time to go through security, etc.?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The US Security questions is typically very brief.

     

  • 1 hour layover- enough time?

    I am thinking about a flight that gives only a 1 hour layover in AMS, coming from SFO and going to JRO. Will that be enough time? There is only 1 flight a day, would I automatically be added to the flight the next day if the inbound flight from SFO is delayed and I miss it? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time as long as your flight from SFO is anywhere close to on-time. Yes, if you miss your connection you will be booked on the next day's flight to Johannesburg.

  • MAN -> AMS -> VIE (short connection at AMS)

    I'll fly from Manchester, UK to Vienna, Austria via Amsterdam (Schiphol). My arrival at AMS is 19:45 & the departure to VIE is at 20:35. As I'm coming from UK (non-schengen) into Schengen w/ Japanese passport that is non-EU/UK/Swiss. So I'll need to get through the passport control. I'm aware that I can dash over to 'short connection' lane. Yet, would I make it? I think it'd arrive at D-concourse (downstairs?) & depart from D-concourse (upstairs?)

     

    That should be enough time.

    If I check my bag in Los Angeles for a Warsaw destination, will I have to take it through customs in AMS and recheck to WAW? Thanks!

     

    If your bag is checked to WAW then you won't see it again until you get to Warsaw, even though you have to go through passport control in Amsterdam.

    That should be just enough time. you will have to go through US Security questions and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you!

    What customs and security will I have to go through to transfer from a flight from Canada going to London with a UK passport?

     

    You don't have to go through any customs or security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks, that is helpful in planning my trip

    I have a connection time of 50 mintues from BHX (Birmingham, UK) going to ORD (Chicago O'Hare) on the same ticket, Delta have assured me that it is enough time. I'm just a little concerned after the attacks in Belgium. Should i be?

     

    You will have to go through US Security questions and to your departure gate. It is certainly possible but is very tight.
