Hi: We are considering a connection at AMS with a 50 mins transfer. Is this enough time? 1 reservation from BGO-AMS-ATL on KLM and Delta. Thanks.
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi we will be flying DL126 BOS-AMS and transferring AMS-BHX with about 2 1/2 hour transfer coming and 2 hours on the return leg, will be transferring to Cityhopper, but it's one booking via DL. I assume that would be enough time, but all advice appreciated.
That is plenty of time. All you have to do in Amsterdam both ways is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flying into Amsterdam and land at 9:20 am. Would like to book a 11:50 am flight to Stockholm on Norwegian. We will have to get bags, customs, and then check in for Norwegian flight. Will we have enough time?

Hi,
I will travel with 2 different airlines and I need to pick up my luggage at Amsterdam airport, and go trough the departure area and customs again. I read a lot comments about very long queue in custom's area. How much time do I need between my 2 flights? (one inside Europe, the other outside Europe).
Thank you!
What exact countries are you flying to/from and airlines are you flying on? Your question is too vague to answer.
I am flying from Trondheim to Amsterdam, then I need to pick up my bags. My second fligth is from Amsterdam to Singapore. Same on the way back.
Then I would want 2.5 hours between flights.
I'm flying from Boston to Paris with 1hr and 45 minutes to transfer in Schiphol airport. My question is I would like to leave a carry on bag in a locker in Schipol airport for a few days and was wondering if I would have enough time to deplane, do customs, drop the bag and get back thru security for my connecting flight? I will already have a boarding pass. Thanks
I think that would be really close whether or not that's enough time.
I have a connecting flight in Amsterdam for 2 hours and 15 minutes. The route is DTW-AMS- JNB and the flights are Dl134 and KLM 591. Is this enough time to make the connection
Yes, all you have to do in Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am coming in late on Ryan Air from Dublin with checked baggage. I need a place to sleep for an early am flight to Seattle on KLM. What airport hotel would be the most convenient?
Since you'll need to claim your bags re-check them with Delta the next morning, you'll have to stay in a regular hotel outside the transit area, such as the Sheraton, Hilton, or CitizenM.
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.
I'll be traveling from atlanta to copenhagen, with a connection in amsterdam. Will I go through passport control when I land in amsterdam?
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Amsterdam.
