Hi we will be arriving tomorrow from humberside, transferring to singapore with a one hour gap in between landing and departing. Is this an essy transfer and does it take long to collect the bags?
If it's two separate reservations you have to go through passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with Singapore, and then go through security. One hour is not enough time for that. If it's only one reservation all you have to do is go to your departure gate, getting your Singapore boarding pass from the transfer desk along the way if you don't already have it. 1 Hour is sufficient for that.
I have the boarding passes already. After collecting the baggage, will there still be sufficient time and if not what happens next?
I think by the time you get your luggage the bag check cutoff for Singapore will have already passed. If so you'll have to pay a change fee and fly to Singapore the next day.
Flying in from US on August 14, arrive 10:50 am - need to catch RAGOM flight to Bucharest at 11:50 am. Do I have enough time if no checked bags? Do I do customs in Bucharest or Amsterdam?
You are not entering the Schengen Area, so you will go through Passport control and customs in Bucharest. I don't know what "RAGOM" is. Do you mean "TAROM"? You have enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.
Yes Romanian air, my typo
No, they are not on the same reservation, I fly in on KLM and then have to move to TAROM. One hour exactly, and pass though customs. I may have to choose another flight? Thank for your quick response!
In that case, I don't think an hour is enough time.
I don't think it is enough time either, thank you for helping!
We are flying from Chicago to Amsterdam on DL flight operated by KLM arriving at 6:45 am and departing on DL operated by KLM at 7:40 am we will have bags. 1. Is this enough connection time and Do we have to pick up our bags and go through customs?
All you have to do in Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We are flying from Seattle to AMS in May. Arrival at 13h and connecting to Air France (HOP!)1337 (Embraer)at 14h55 to Strasbourg and Bordeaux. We will have to retrieve luggage and check it in again. Do we have time to make the connection
If it's two separate reservations with your bags not checked through to Bordeaux that will be really difficult.

Amsterdam only has one terminal. Yes, you will go through security upon arriving from Tehran.
Hi. I'll be arriving in AMS from Dublin at 8.30am and my next flight to Kilimanjaro leaves at 10.15am. Thats 1hr 45mins. I don't have to collect luggage. Will that be enough time? Do I need to go through security/passport control again? Just thinking if I have liquids that I picked up in Dublin airport. I think I'll be arriving at the D gates. Any advice gratefully received, thanks. D,
You will not go through passport control since you are not entering the Schengen Area. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
