  • 45 min klm transfer time
    Jun 6, 2016
    I have booked connecting flights from Aberdeen to Zagreb with klm via Amsterdam with a 45 min layover. Is this enough time for luggage to be transferred and catch flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    travelling to calgary via amsterdam with a 50 min stopover in amsterdam. what happens if fight from glasgow is delayed


    You will be rebooked to Calgary over a Delta hub in the US such as Detroit, Seattle, or Minneapolis or you will be sent on the next day's flight to Calgary.


  • 1.5 Flight to Nairobi arriving from Venice
    Jun 7, 2016
    I have to book a flight from Venice to Nairobi with KLM. There is one stop in Amsterdam with 1.5 hour connection between flights. It is one booking, although the flight from Venice is operated by KLM and the flight to Naitobi by Kenya Airlines. Is 1.5 hours enough to make the Nairobi flight? I am a Canadian citizen with Canadian passport.


    We arrive on Delta from Salt Lake City at 10:50am and fly out on KLM at 11:55am on KLM. Do we have enough time to make the 2nd flight? Are the gates for Delta and KLM close to each other?

    Travelling from Calgary to Zagreb via Amsterdam. Flight arrives into Amsterdam at 0815 and then flight to Zagreb departs at 0920. Do we clear immigration in Amsterdam or in Zagreb and is it enough time to connect.


    If I'm correct, Croatia isn't a part of the Schengen zone so all border formalities take place in Zagreb. 1h20m may be enough if you don't take your time and manage to walk at a good pace (AMS is all one building though).


  • KLM to DELTA transfer time
    May 30, 2016
    We're arriving KLM from Glasgow and transferring to DELTA for Portland. We have 2 checked bags and 90 minutes between flights. Do we have to collect and re-drop off bags? Do we need to pass through customs and security again? Can we do it in 90 minutes? Thanks in anticipation.


    Are all the flights on one ticket or are they 2 separate reservations? If all were booked in one ticket (both KLM and DL are Skyteam) then you go straight to the gate and you'll probably even have time before boarding. If it's on 2 separate bookings you first need to enter the Schengen zone (and do border procedures since both UK and US are obviously not Schengen), pick up your bags, go through passport control again then get to your gate. You may want to have more than 90 min between flights if you have 2 separate bookings. You may be able to make it if you're fast enough and are lucky that lines aren't long.


  • 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.
