Good afternoon,
I get to AMS at 18:00 from México, and have to take another flight to Athens at 20:55, will it be enough time to make the connection? This are two different bookings and will have to pick up baggage and make check in again. Hope you can help. Many thanks
Are both flights on KLM? If not which airline are you flying to Athens?
Hello ZAP! Thanks for your quick response. Flight from MEX to AMS is Aeromexico, and flight from AMS to ATH is KLM
That should be enough time. You can show your KLM confirmation to the agent in Mexico and ask them to check your bags through to Athens. They should because Aeromexico and KLM are alliance partners.
I didn´t know you could do that. Will definitely do it. Thank you so much for the response. It has been very helpful. Have an awesome day!
could you give an update on this kind of flight if you managed to check through the baggage successfully to the final destination? thank you!
Would love to, but my flight does't depart until July, so maybe someone else can give you advise. Have a treat day! :)
Is 1 hr 10 mins enough to transfer from a flight from Italy to flight to US? No customs or immigration stops in AMS from Italy, correct?
You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control and US Security questions in Amsterdam, but you should have enough time.
If My flight from MSP comes to AMS and will again be departing to EBB with a 3.5 hr layover at AMS. Will I have to go through customs at AMS? How long will it take me to get to my gate at AMS after I unboard my MSP plane.
All you have to do in Amsterdam on your way to Entebbe is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Arriving from the USA on United (terminal G) and connecting to Austrian (terminal B). Is there security in addition to immigration? How long does it normally take at 0830? No checked bags.

Many Thanks
Those are concourses, not terminals. Amsterdam only has one terminal. You do not have to go through security. If you have 55 minutes you should be OK.
Iarrive at schipol at 0825hrs on 13/08/17 with klm from Edinburgh,I fly out at 0955hrs with klm to rome will I have enough time to go from plane to plane
Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate.
Hi - We will be traveling to AMS from Seattle on Delta. We arrive at 1:00pm. I would like to book a flight on KLM to Venice at 2:25pm. Would we have enough time to make that connection? Carry on luggage. Arriving business class, so first off the plane. Thank you!
With carry-ons only, yes, I think you can make that.
Thank you for your quick response. You think that is enough time even if they are separate reservations?
Yes, you will be able to check in for your Venice flight online or at the KLM transfer desk.
Thank you! Appreciate your insight!!
Similar situation but about 2 hrs difference with check in luggage...will it be possible?
Ditto, if it's two separate reservations and you have to transfer your bags yourself, that will be difficult.
Flying in August on Delta from Boston arriving at 7:50 am and considering a 9:35 am flight on KLM to Munich. Will we have to clear immigration before boarding the next flight? If so, is this enough time in between flights to risk buying this ticket?
Forgot to mention that we will not check luggage!
When you arrive you will go through Schengen Entry passport control and go to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I have a flight out of AMS to San Francisco at 11:35 am and I was going to fly in from London and arrive at 9:05am (they're two different reservations). Does that leave me enough time? Would I have to go through the passport check? Also I will only have a carry on luggage with me.
With only carry-ons you won't have to go through passport control. Just go to the KLM Transfer desk to get your SFO boarding pass if you aren't able to check in online and then go through US Security questions and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
I am on a Delta flight from Slc to


I am flying Delta from SLC to AMS, where I will have a connection on a KLM flight to Florence Italy. Our connection time is only one hour at AMS. Will that be enough time to board my KLM to Italy?

That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks so much for the quick reply!!
Will be arriving at 6:00 pm on Aeromexico and have another reservation with KLM at 9:00 pm to Athens. Is that enough time tonmakenthe connection if we have to pick up baggage, do security check baggage in etc... since they are two different bookings.
Hello, I found prices very reasonable if I fly roundtrip from Seattle to AMS, and then AMS to London (I will be spending time in both cities). How long should I allow before my AMS to London flight (same day)? Any customs or other connection time I need to consider? Thanks, Cecil
An hour is doable. There is no Customs if making a simple connection between the US and London over AMS all on the same reservation.
Sorry, just saw this was two separate reservations. In that case I recommend 3 hours.
