My daughter is flying on Icelandair from Seattle to AMS (through Keflavik). She then catches an Easyjet flight to Toulouse, France. She arrives at AMS at 12:40 pm, departs on Easyjet at 4:50 pm. She'll have one checked bag. What will the process be at AMS? Is her connection time adequate? Thank you.
She will collect her bag from Icelandair, check it with Easyjet and go through security. she has plenty of time.
Arriving o KLM from Houston and departing to Warsaw. How far apart might the gates be?
Most walks at AMS aren't very far. It's a well designed airport. As long as you have around an hour for your connection you should be OK.
I fly into AMS on Delta then I fly to EDI Scotland on KLM. I have 1 and 1/2 hours between planes. Will that be enough time? Will the gates be close?
Yes, that should be enough time. The Edinburgh flight will likely be a bus gate.

I have a flight from france to amsterdam, and then a connecting flight to kenya.
I have a 55 minute connection? Will this be enough time to get to my gate?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Where is this located in terminal. Need to meet up with family at gate. Flight 9551 on Sat 27.
My daughter is flying to Luxembourg through Amsterdam. She has a 1:45 transfer time in Amsterdam for her flight to Luxembourg and a 1:05 for her return. I understand for KLM CityHopper flights (from Amsterdam to/from Luxembourg) she will need to take a bus from the terminal to the plane. Will she have enough time to make her transfers?
That should be enough time on the way there and barely enough on the way back.
Thank you very much for your advice and expertise.
My understanding is the passport check takes place at AMS. How much time would that take. First time to Europe and any helpful advice appreciated. We don't frequently travel and trying to avoid Global Entry or Pre
Global Entry and PreCheck don't do anything for you in Europe. You'll want at least an hour for your transfer in Amsterdam. Preferably a bit more.
Thanks ZAP!
I am flying Sept 30 from NCE, France to MPLS connecting through AMS. The NCE flight lands at 2:20, the MPLS flight departs 3:10. Both flights are Delta. I have a US passport. Do I have enough time to make the departing flight?
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. Note that the first flight will be operated by Air France or KLM, not Delta.
We have a MSP-AMS-DEL reservation on Delta with 1 hr 55 mins layover time in AMS. Is that enough time to catch to transfer from one terminal/gate to another terminal/gate?
Yes, that is enough time. AMS only has one terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks. Turns out that even though booking is thru Delta, the flight from AMS to DEL is KLM. Is that still the same terminal for arrival and departure gate?
I am arriving to AMS from U.S. at 7:15 AM on a United flight, transferring on a separate ticket to a KLM flight flying AMS-Madrid at 9:30AM. I am planning on not checking any bags since there won't be time for me to collect luggage. Do you think there will be time to make this connection including the passport customs checkpoint? Will I need to go through security again anyways?
Yes, that should be enough time. If you are able to check in online for your KLM flight then all you have to do in Amsterdam is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
