  • Is 50 minutes enough ?
    Nov 19, 2015
    We are booked into AMS from Aruba on KLM, continuing to Munich on KLM 50 minutes later. We are travelling on USA passports. Can we make it through EU customs to make that connection in 50 minutes ?


    It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from Aruba is delayed.


  • Question.
    Nov 18, 2015
    I'm booked tickets for Singapore to Amsterdam on Garuda Indonesia and from Amsterdam to London Heathrow on BA and I will be transiting at Schipol for three hours. Do I need to clear passport control?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation and you have checked baggage, or if you don't have checked baggage, you will not have to go through passport control. If you purchased two separate reservations and have checked baggage then you will have to go through passport control to claim your baggage from Garuda and transfer it to British Airways.


  • Enough connection time?

    My mom is traveling from Bucharest to Calgary connecting in Amsterdam. She only has 1 hour and 40 min between the flights. Is this enough time? Does she have to go through security or passport check? Thank you!


    That is plenty of time. She will have to go through security after arrival but will not go through passport control because she is not entering the Schengen Area.

    I will be flying DTW-AMS-OSL, all on same reservation. Is 90 minutes enough time for connection in Amsterdam? What about return trip...also with a 90 minute layover? Thanks in advance.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

  • Connecting flight

    Traveling with delta from Florida to Munich , have a layover in Amsterdam I need to collect my luggage and drop off at another Area....


    As long as both flights are on the same reservation you will not have to do anything with your baggage in Amsterdam.


  • Connection BCN-AMS-LAX
    Nov 9, 2015
    Hello! Mi family and I are traveling from BCN to AMS with KLM (we arrive at 8:30am) and we have a connection flight to LAX with the same airline at 9:50am, all in a single booking; we have 1 hr and 20 minutes of layover, assuming the first flight is on time. I am not sure if we need to go through security again in order to take our connection flight. I have no information about the terminals and gates our flights arrive/depart. Should we just walk to our departing gate at our arrival or do we need to go through extra steps like passport control first (we are mexican citizens)? I really appreciate any help you could give us since our layover is pretty tight.


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen exit Passport control (which is a very brief process) on your way. You have plenty of time.


    Awesome, thank you!


  • India to USA via Amsterdam
    Nov 7, 2015
    My parents have valid USA visitors visa (B2). Do they still need to have transit visa for AMS. Also they are travelling tomorrow. Please let me know, what i need to do ?


    Since they have a US Visitors visa they do not need a schengen airport transit visa. Sorry that I had overlooked that earlier.


  • Delhi (India) to Seattle (USA) via Amsterdam
    Nov 7, 2015
    My Parents are coming from Delhi to Seattle via AMS. Total overlay time is 2:30 hours. Is it good enough ? Also do they need any transit visa ? If i am not wrong they only need to go through security check.


    Indian citizens require an Airport Transit Visa to transit a schengen country, even if it is a sterile transit as is the case in Amsterdam. They have enough time.


    Thanks for you reply. My parents have valid USA visitors visa. Do they still need to have transit visa for AMS. Also they are travelling tomorrow. Please let me know, what i need to do ?


  • United to Amsterdam and then KLM to Bergen, Norway
    Nov 6, 2015
    I booked a United flight to Amsterdam, arrived 9:30AM. I booked a separate flight with KLM that same day to leave at 11:55. Will I need to go through Customs, Ticketing and Security again. Will I need to get my bag and recheck it on the KLM flight. Is this all enough time? thanks!!!


    If you have hcecked bags, yes, you will go through Schengen passport control, claim your bags, then walk through customs, take your bags to the KLM check-in counter, check them, go through security and to your departure gate. If you don't have checked bags then you can just go through Schengen passport control and to the KLM transfer desk or your departure gate if you are able to check-in online. You should have barely enough time if you check bags.


  • Transfering from Malta to AMS to Canada to US
    Nov 5, 2015
    We will be connecting in AMS from Malta to Toronto and have 1 hour 5 minutes. Will we be able to make our connecting flight.


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as all tickets are on the same reservation and bags are checked through. You will just have to go through Schengen exit passport control.


  • Connection in 45 Mins
    Nov 4, 2015
    My KLM flight is from Moscow-Amsterdam-London with a very tight of 45 minutes of transiting in AMS Airport > 1) Do i need to go through passport control? 2) WIll i make it Thanks


    You do not have to go through passport control but you will have to go through security. This is a difficult connection, but not impossible and KLM has several flights from Amsterdam to London if you miss your connection.


  • Transfer Process at AMS
    Nov 2, 2015
    I am traveling from Portland, US to Delhi via Amsterdam. I see generally flight coming from Portaland comes at terminal 3 and Delhi flight departs from Terminal 2. I also see there are transfer terminals like T5, T9 etc. Do I have to go to any Transfer terminal or straight out from 3 to terminal 2 ? Will there be any security check in ? If yes where ? My checked-in baggages are through from PDX to DEL.


    I don't know where you're seeing that. Amsterdam only has one terminal. All you have to do in Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Dublin to Toronto via Amsterdam
    Nov 2, 2015
    Would 50 min layover be enough to get through everything. Arrive from Dublin at 09:25 and leave for Toronto on different airline at 10:15, Jan 2nd. Or best to pay an extra $100 CAD to get an extra hour layover time?


  • 50 minute stopover from Dublin to Amsterdam and going to Toronto?
    Nov 2, 2015
    Flying from Dublin to Amsterdam, arriving 10.15am. And fly out at 12.05 to Toronto, Jan 2nd. Would this be enough time to get through everything? It's two different airlines (Aer Lingus from Dublin, and Air Canada from Amsterdam)


    For two separate tickets with checked bags 50 minutes would be impossible. However, if tickets are on the same reservation that should be possible.
