  • 1 Hour KLM transfer - US to Tanzania
    May 30, 2016
    I am flying from SFO to AMS and then AMS to JRO. I only have a one hour connection time. Given that my flight from SFO arrives on time, 9:15am, will I be able to make my 10:15am flight to Tanzania? Advice appreciated.


    To clarify, both are KLM flights.


    If you manage to walk really fast you may be able to make it (I wouldn't count on it though).


  • Connecting flight with only 55 min?
    May 21, 2016
    I fly from Frankfurt to Amsterdam and Amsterdam to Salt Lake City. I arrive I. Amsterdam at 1135am and my connecting flight is at 1230pm. Both with KML airlines. Do I have to reclaim my luggage and go through customs? Will 55 min be enough? I am literally freaking out especially traveling with 2 small children. Help....


  • Transfer from delta to easyjet
    May 21, 2016

  • Passport control
    May 21, 2016
    Flying back to Canada (Edmonton) from Budapest via Amsterdam on KLM and transfer time is only 1 hour and 15 minutes--do we just go through Passport control or do we also have to go through Security? There is only 1 flight back to Edmonton per day so if we miss our scheduled one, we will have to stay overnight. This is a business class ticket which says we have the services of KLM's "Sky Priority" but don't know if they would be around to help if we are running late. Tried to get answers from KLM customer service but he told me that we don't go through passport control or security in Amsterdam and will do that in Edmonton. Would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you


    You just go through Schengen exit passport control. you have enough time. You do not have to go through security.


    Thank you--I always thought that the Schengen passport control was only for citizens of Schengen countries. This information will help with future travels too.


  • Toronto --> AMS --> Delhi: Security check and time requirement.
    May 19, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from toronto (YYZ) to Delhi (DEL) on Jet Airways, on a single ticket. 1) Do I go through security while transferring? 2) Which gate/zone do i arrive to and depart from? Boarding pass to Delhi, is it issued at origin or do i collect from AMS? Thank you in advance


    No, you will not go through security. All you will do is deplane and either reboard the same plane or board another Jet Airways plane nearby. You will be issued both boarding passes in Toronto.


    Thank you!!


  • Toronto to AMS to Copenhagen

    Is a 1 hour and 25 minute layover in Amsterdam enough time? I am flying from Toronto to Copenhagen. 1 carry on and 1 checked in bag. Canadian passport. Single ticket. What security procedures will I have to go through? Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Amsterdam is go through passport control.




  • Will I need to go through customs or get my checked bags?
    May 17, 2016
    I am a USA citizen, flying Air France from Marseille, 1 hr 20 min layover in AMS, then fly Delta to Seattle. This was booked as one reservation. Whether or not I have checked luggage, all I have to do is go to my departure gate, correct? Thank you


    You will have to go through schengen exit passport control and US Security questions, but you will not have to do anything with your baggage.


  • Do I have to clear customs/security and collect bags? I am from IAD to
    May 16, 2016
    I am flying with UA946 from Washington DC, USA IAD airport to AMS and transfer to ZRH airport with LX725. The transfer time is 2 hours. 1. Do I need to collect my bags and go through security/custom desk then check in again with Swiss airline? 2. Is 2 hours long enough for the transfer? 3. Which Gate (ABCDEFGH) is used by United airline? 4. Which Gate (ABCDEFGH) is used by Swiss airline?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security if everything is on the same reservation. You will just go through passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    May 16, 2016
    I am traveling from Atlanta to Cape Town, SA and connecting in AMS. We have a 90min layover time, will this be enough time? Do we have to go through security or customs?


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

  • Question
    May 16, 2016
    Flying from MSP to ZURICH with stop over in AMS. Do I have to collect my baggage and go through customs?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam - just go through schengen passport control and to your departure gate.


  • Do I have to clear customs and collect bags
    May 17, 2016
    I am flying with KLM from London Heathrow to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Later that same day I am flying with China Southern Airlines. Both tickets where purchased separately and I assume I will not have checked through luggage. Will I need to clear customs, collect my bags and then check in again with the different airline? Can I use the self service machines to check in? FYI traveling on a New Zealand Passport. Cheers


    Yes, you will have to do all that. You will have to go to a counter to check your bags.


    Thank you for your comment. Regards


  • Berlin(TXL) > AMS > YYZ
    May 16, 2016
    Hello, I am arriving(via KLM) in AMS @ 7:20AM and departing for Toronto YYZ (Air Transat) at 9AM. This is NOT 1 ticket but I should have a good amount of time to transfer through customs and make the flight? Thank you


    If you have checked bags I don't think that this is reasonably possible. Without checked bags you might have a chance.


  • ATL-> AMS -> EDI (80 min connection in AMS ok?)
    May 11, 2016
    I am looking to book a Delta flight from Atlanta, USA to Edinburgh, UK that has a connection through AMS. The flight gets into AMS at 8:30am and the next leg departs at 9:50am. Is this enough time to go through passport control?


    You won't have to go through passport control as you aren't entering the Schengen Area. That should be enough time.


  • 50 min layover from Paris to Bucharest
    May 17, 2016
    Hello, my flight from Paris arrives at 19:50h at AMS, and my flight to Bucharest departs at 20:40h. Do you think I'll have enough time? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. All flights are within Schengen.


    Great, thank you for the response. Actually still a little bit worried as Bucharest is EU but not Schengen. I understood there's no securtiy screening, only passport control. I hope that if needed I can have access to the fast lane, my inbound to AMS is Air France and outbound to Bucharest is KLM economy class (bought on the same ticket)


    Sorry, I read it as Budapest and not Bucharest. You should still have enough time.


    Thank you for your comments. You are right; I already flew and reached well my destination, I had enough time
