  • Connection time
    Jan 19, 2017
    Flying in August on Delta from Boston arriving at 7:50 am and considering a 9:35 am flight on KLM to Munich. Will we have to clear immigration before boarding the next flight? If so, is this enough time in between flights to risk buying this ticket?


    Forgot to mention that we will not check luggage!


    When you arrive you will go through Schengen Entry passport control and go to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Enough time to transfer flights.

    I have a flight out of AMS to San Francisco at 11:35 am and I was going to fly in from London and arrive at 9:05am (they're two different reservations). Does that leave me enough time? Would I have to go through the passport check? Also I will only have a carry on luggage with me.


    With only carry-ons you won't have to go through passport control. Just go to the KLM Transfer desk to get your SFO boarding pass if you aren't able to check in online and then go through US Security questions and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I am on a Delta flight from Slc to I am flying Delta from SLC to AMS, where I will have a connection on a KLM flight to Florence Italy. Our connection time is only one hour at AMS. Will that be enough time to board my KLM to Italy?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks so much for the quick reply!!


  • 2 reservations: Seatte to AMS and AMS to London

    Hello, I found prices very reasonable if I fly roundtrip from Seattle to AMS, and then AMS to London (I will be spending time in both cities). How long should I allow before my AMS to London flight (same day)? Any customs or other connection time I need to consider? Thanks, Cecil


    An hour is doable. There is no Customs if making a simple connection between the US and London over AMS all on the same reservation.


    Sorry, just saw this was two separate reservations. In that case I recommend 3 hours.


  • Is 50 mis enough to change flight
    Jan 17, 2017
    I have a booking from Berlin to Amsterdam (KLM Royal Dutch KL 1824 | 73H ) and then from Ams to delhi (KLM Royal Dutch KL 871 | 789) . Run by Klm flight. The connecting flight is in next 50 mins. Is that time enough?


    Yes, you just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate.


    so I don't have to go through again immigration and 50 mins is enough for it?


    Thank you for your answer!


    Schengen Exit Passport Control is "Immigration" but is a very brief process.

    I'm arriving from Prague and have 60 minutes to catch my flight to LAX. Will that be enough time?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Wondering if we will have enough time to catch my next flight before booking tickets. Flight is scheduled to arrive at 12:15pm and next flight is at 2:00pm. We would like to have one checked bag with us if time allows.


    On two separate reservations with checked bags I think that's just a little too risky for my tastes. You could do it without checked bags.


  • Layover time at Amsterdam
    Jan 13, 2017
    I will be traveling from Mumbai to Amsterdam (Jet Airways) and onward to Munich (KLM), the layover time at AMS is 1 hr 20 min (in the morning at around 8.30), both legs of the journey booked on the same ticket. Is the layover time sufficient?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Security and Schengen Entry passport control in Amsterdam.


    Thank you

    The pictures I can find show that Xiamen airport has some English Signage but it may not be complete and may not be very good.




  • connecting BIO and JFK
    Jan 4, 2017
    We have 1h 50 min from BIO to AMS and then to JFK. Will that be enough? What if we can't make it for a delay?


    Yes, that's plenty of time. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to New York.


  • Abu Dhabi - Amsterdam - Paris

    Hi all. Arriving from AUH 2.55pm (KLM operated by Etihad), then KLM to Paris CDG with a 1hr 35min layover. Will I need to collect and recheck in luggage? Will this layover time be sufficient? Thanks!


    You do not have to do anything with your bags. Just go through Passport Control and Security and to your departure gate.


  • Delta to KLM Cityhopper
    Jan 4, 2017
    Hi, I am flying in July from Seattle through Amsterdam to Belfast. I have 1.5 hour layover. It's my understanding I will need to go through passport control and get a bus to my connecting flight. Will that be enough time? And how soon do you need to be at the bus before your departure time? There is only the one flight to Belfast per day. Thank you.


    I meant to add that I will be arriving at 1300. I don't know if the time of day makes a difference. Thank you.


    You will not have to go through passport control as you are not entering the Schengen Area. You have enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time.


  • AMS to Barcelona
    Jan 3, 2017
    I will be flying on Delta landing from Seattle in AMS at 8:30 a.m. Sat. 13 Jan - I will be taking a KLM flight to Barcelona that leave at 10:30 that same morning - is this enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation then you just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.


  • 1Hr 10Min layover enough time from Budapest to Boston?
    Dec 30, 2016
    We are arriving from Budapest on Czech Airlines 1:35 and leaving on KLM to Boston at 2:45pm. We can walk briskly but how easy is it to find the security area and is it a quick process to go through? Self serve kiosks? Can we cut the line if our first flight is late?


    Firstly, Czech does not fly from Budapest to Amsterdam. Are you connecting in Prague first or is your flight actually on Malev or KLM? Secondly, you will first go through Schengen Exit Passport Control, then go the the gate that is on the monitors, this isn't actually a gate but a place where they will ask you some security questions. After you complete that they will tell you your real gate and stamp your boarding pass and you will go to your real gate.


    Yes you are right . The flight from Budapest is Delta operated by KLM then the next flight to BOS is via Delta. So do we have enough of a layover?


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • 1 hr time connection
