  • Connection flight at AMS
    Dec 8, 2016
    Flying from Belfast International Airport to AMS by easyJet, arriving at 12.30 and taking a flight to Larnaca at 15:00 operated by Transavia. Please could you tell me if it will be possible to go to gate directly without going through security again? I am thinking to get a present (liquids) from Duty free shop and Belfast airport and not sure if I will be able to take them with me.


    If you have checked bags that won't be possible.


    Many thanks for the answer. I will have only hand luggage. In that case is it ok?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time then. You can go directly to your departure desk or the Transavia transfer desk if you aren't able to check-in online.


  • Connecting KL-SQ
    Dec 8, 2016
    Flying business class on KLM from Budapest and connecting in Amsterdam to Singapore on SQ. I checked with KLM and they said baggage could be checked through to Singapore. With Schengen Exit Passport Control, is 1h 40m enough for transfer?


    If the baggage is checked through, yes, that should be enough time. You will likely still have to go to the Singapore transfer desk for your boarding passes.


  • 1 hour connection time -is this enough to time?

    Hi, I have a flight with KLM from Glasgow to Amsterdam then with connection time of only 1 hour to make Delta flight from Amsterdam to Salt Lake City. Will I make the Delta flight in time??


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


  • Connecting 2 reservations
    Dec 5, 2016
    Ill be connecting in Netherlands on KLM flight from Estonia to an American Airlines flight to Philadelphia a 2 1/2 hour time between arrival and take off. Do I have enough time to get my American Airline flight?


    forgot to mention that I'll have checked bags.


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. This would be a lot easier if you can do it without checking bags.

    My parents are travelling by Jet Airways from Mumbai - AMS then taking the connecting flight to Edmonton,Canda.What terminal MUM- AMS arrives and Which Terminal AMS-YEG will take off from.What will be the distance.IS there a map.


    Amsterdam only has one Terminal.


  • distance
    Dec 2, 2016
    I'm going to take an Alitalia flight & have connecting flight to catch (KLM). How far is the distance between these 2 gates?


    It depends where you're flying to on KLM. KLM uses almost the entire airport.


    I'm flying to Kuala Lumpur.


    Then it could be a 10-15 minute walk (you will also have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control).


    may I know the gates number?


    You won't know the gate numbers until the day of your flight.

    we are arriving in from a flight from Kuala lumpur, at 12:40pm and have a separate flight to Manchester at 14:15pm with checked baggage, is this possible to make this witht he time?


    On two separate reservations, no I don't think that's enough time.


    is there anyway we could have the airline of our first flight transfer our luggage for us so we dont have to go through check in again? would that work


    What airlines are you flying?


    malaysia airlines operated by emirates, then we need to get our baggage, then check in again to bravofly for the next flight, is there anyway the airlines can transfer our luggage to save time and so we dont have to check in again?

    Hi, I'm gonna fly from Jakarta to Amsterdam with final destination to Madrid. My ETA in Amsterdam is 07:20 with Garuda Indonesia and ETD from Amsterdam to Madrid is 09:40 with KLM. I booked both flights separately so I will have to go through immigration (non-schengen to schengen), claim my baggage and re-check my baggage with KLM. Do I have sufficient time? Thanks!


    It's not impossible but it doesn't leave a lot of time to spare.


    Thanks! What's the reasonable minimum connecting time for my case?


    I would want at least 3 hours.


  • Transit in amsterdam

    Hi, im travelling from sao paulo brazil to amsterdam, but my first stop is in frankfurt where i should go thru immigration check, my flight arrives at 17:45 so im thinking to book a flight from amsterdam to Paris at 18:50 .Do you think i could make it? I will only travel with carry on . And i read transavia is in the same terminal as lufthansa. thank you!


    Yes, that would be theoretically possible if you had no checked bags and checked in online for your flight to Paris.


    Thank you!!


    Nov 23, 2016
    We'll be travelling with 2 kids in August from Munich to Seattle, USA thru Amsterdam. Transit time is 1 hour 50 minutes. Is it enough time to make the connections? We'll fly Delta (operated by KLM for MUC to AMS). Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit passport control, US Security questions, and go to your departure gate.

    Flying from Portland, Oregon (US) through AMS to Turin, Italy as final destination. We have a 1 hour layover in AMS. All flights are with Delta. Will we have to get our checked luggage in AMS or will it be sent through to Turin, Italy? Also should 1 hour be enough time for passport control in AMS? Many thanks!!


    Note that your second flight is operated by KLM. Yes, you should have enough time. You won't have to do anything with your bags in AMS.


  • Transfer Aberdeen to muscat
    Nov 21, 2016
    I fly from Aberdeen to muscat transferring at Amsterdam. Is it a straightforward connection process


    Yes, all you should have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hello. I will be flying on delta flight DL9476 from Lisbon to Amsterdam and from there to Portland (flight DL179). Both flights are operated by KLM. Transit time in AMS is 50min. I tried to look for the terminals/gates, but couldn't find the info. Will I be able to make it? Thank you


    Note that your first flight will be operated by KLM, but the second will be operated by Delta. You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight. This is a very difficult connection as in Amsterdam you will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and US Security Questions.


  • 1H30 layover
    Nov 12, 2016
    I'll arrive to AMS from Bari and there I'll transfer to Edinburgh. I have 1h30 roughly (before the gate closing time). Is it enough? Thanks.


    Yes, that is plenty of time.


  • Marseille to ams to chicago
    Nov 15, 2016
    We only have an hour layover between flights. Booked through KLM on same reservation if that matters. Will we make it as we have never flown internationally before....


    Yes, that should be just enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control, US Security questions, and to your gate.


    Thank you for the information
