  • TUN->CDG->AMS->ATL (single ticket)
    Feb 26, 2017

    Two layovers at CDG and AMS, 1h10m each. I've managed the CDG connection before, but I'm not sure if the AMS connection is comfortably doable. Traveling alone, not a *huge* deal if I miss it, but I don't like getting stressed out. Should I do it?

     

    Also, any advice on the CDG connection? Flight from TUN arrives at Terminal 2E, and flight to AMS leaves from Terminal 2F. Air France website says ~30 minutes for the trip from 2E to 2F. That leaves barely enough time, right? Thanks.

    My international connection (to the USA) is 70 minutes. So basically I have 40 minutes to catch the flight before they close the gate. Is it possible to make it through security? The advised time for international flight is 50 minutes. Any suggestions?

     

  • Flying from Rome to Reykjavik through AMS

    Hi there, this is a great website. We will be flying KLM from Rome to Amsterdam, with only a 45 minute wait before we then board an Icelandair flight from AMS to Reykjavik, and then on to Canada. Do we need to go through security or passport control during the 45 minutes in AMS as we switch planes? Do you think 45 minutes is enough? Thanks so much!

     

    Hi again - I should have mentioned that we will have carry-on luggage only.

     

    If you already have your Icelandair boarding pass you should be able to go right to your departure gate. Otherwise you will have to stop at the Icelandair transfer desk. This is still a very tight connection.

     

    Thanks so much for your reply. We feared it wouldn't be enough time, so thanks for your confirmation of that! All the best :)

    Arrive AMS from BOS at 7:50 AM on Delta. Depart 9:20 AM on KLM flight 1143 to Oslo. Both on one Delta reservation. Checked bags. Is that enough time for Schengen Entry passport control?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time.

     

    Thanks for the fast response.

     

  • Seattle to Amsterdam to Capetown

    Hi! I'm flying from Seattle to Capetown via Delta. I have 1 hour and 40 minutes to connect at AMS - and my AMS flight is operated by KLM. On the way back, I travel from Capetown to Seattle and connect at AMS with 2 1/2 hours operated by Air France. Do I need to re-check baggage or do anything for any of these flights? Do they both offer enough time for me to connect?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. On the way to Cape Town all you have to do is go from your arrival gate and on the way back all you have to do is go through Security, US Security Questions, and to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    So are you saying on the way to Capetown, we just go straight from arrival gate to our departure gate? On the way back, we don't need to deal with luggage, but will need to go through security?

     

    That is correct.

     

    Thank you so much!

    Hello, I have a flight from Glasgow to Amsterdam to Sao Paulo with only 50 mins connection. Is this enough? My main concern is that I will be arriving in Amsterdam at 08:45 am which is pretty busy Id imagine

     

    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate since you are not entering the Schengen Area.

    I am flying from paris to mexico but I have a stop of 1,35 hr in schipol airport. Is that enough time to change planes in order to make it on time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate.

    Do you have to go through passport control or any additional security when arriving on Delta from US and connecting to KLM to JRO? I have 1h 40min

     

    No, all you have to do on your way to Kilimanjaro is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    I'm coming from the US to Amsterdam to connect to Rome. It says I have 1 hour 50 minutes. Is that enough time to catch flight to ro e

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if both flights are on Delta/KLM/Alitalia

     

    I am flying from Naples to Amsterdam and I have 1h35min to connect to another flight for New York, all with Delta. Is 1h35 min enough in Schipol? I will have a big luggage that will be transferred directly to the second flight. Thank you!

     

    Yes, that is enough time.

    I am leaving from US and will have to change plane in AMS. Do i need a visa. I am a Indian citizen. Also my us visa which was stamped has expired and I have a petition only.

     

    Since your US visa is expired you will need a Schengen Airport Transit Visa.

     

    thanks

    No baggage...is a "check-out" and check-in @ Icelandic required or can it be done 'inside' eg, concourse C?

     

    You can just get your Icelandair boarding passes at the Icelandair transfer desk.

    I am arriving at Schipol from US on United. Have to then get to KLM commuter to Bergen. Is there an easy way to get from international arrival to domestic outbound? Do I have to collect luggage and recheck ? I have 2.5 hrs to do this but don't know how. Thanks

     

    You will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with KLM, and go through security. You have just enough time.

     

    Thanks ! Do I have to take ground transport to get to domestic terminal? Like a shuttle ? Do you know if it it is well marked ? I am stressed !!!

    Flying from Canada to Iceland. Staying 3days in Iceland. Then flying Icelandair to AMS arriving at 12:40. Taking flight on KLM at 4:20.is this enough time with checked baggage? Do I have to get my baggage.? Two separate bookings.

     

    Forgot to mention flying to Prague from AMS.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. Yes, you will have to transfer your bags yourself between airlines.

     

  • Salt Lake City to Berlin via AMS

    Delta flight from Salt Lake City to Amsterdam with a 75 minute layover between the next flight to Berlin. Is there sufficient time and any idea which concourse the connecting flight departs from? Looks like I'm arriving at Concourse D43. I presume that I will need to go through passport control, but what about security?

     

    I have a similar question -- If we are flying KLM (via Delta booking) from ATL to AMS and catching a connection to CPH, it appears we will need to go through passport control? Does that entail retrieving checked bags and rechecking them? We are a family of 5, so that will be a hassle and would not want to set a connection that rushes it. Thanks.

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags. You both should have enough time.

    First time flying in Europe and traveling with my 10 year old. Thinking of booking my flight home from Athens through AMS to Salt Lake City with a 1.5 hour layover in AMS. Wondering about the procedure and if this is enough time in AMS. Flying Delta. Thanks for any help you can provide.
