Is 2 hours sufficient to do this transfer, DTW - AMS - VNO
DTW-AMS (Delta) and AMS-VNO (Air Baltic).
Do I need to collect the checked baggage at AMS for customs?
Thank you.
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
It is one reservation
Then no, you do't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam and you have enough time.
Thank you. So I guess that if two separate reservations, 2 hours may not be enough as I have to collect and recheck the bags.
Is 2 hrs sufficient for the following transfer: coming into AMS from IST, departing from AMS to MSP? It's been awhile since I've passed through AMS.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm traveling from Detroit to Cape Town, South, Africa with 2 hour layover time at KML. I have three questions...1) Since my ultimate destination is in Africa, will I need to go through immigration AND customs? 2) If the answer is yes to the question above, will I have time to do all that, retrieve luggage and walk from terminal to terminal ?
All you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Amsterdam only has one terminal.
Will 1 Hr and 20 Min be enough time to connect from flight arriving from on KLM with a connection onward to Delhi, India on Jet Airlines? Will I have to go through security or immigration at AMS between flights?
If both flights are on the same reservation then you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Amsterdam.
Thanks for the quick response. These will be on the same reservation as code shares booked through delta. Flights nbrs DL136 from ATL to AMS and then DL7534 from AMS to DEL. so sounds like no security just go from gate to gate.
Have a connecting flight from Manchester uk KL1074 onto KL2039 Amsterdam to Marseille. Only have 1hour going and on return 55 minutes. Is this enough time no checked luggage just hand luggage. Flight 19.3.17
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying KL1058 City Hopper to Schipol and then onwards by KLM6033 (Delta Airlines operated) on 25/4/17. Just been advised flight out from schipol is 20 mins early leaving us 1Hr 20 min to transfer. Is this enough time to comfortably go between gates and do all the checks before the boarding time allotted. what gates do the one flight land at and the second flight take off from.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through US Security questions and to your departure gate. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight.
Hi, I have 55 minutes between flights from Vienna to Amsterdam, then Amsterdam to MSP. Do I have to show my passport and will 50 minutes be enough time
Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control (a brief process) and US Security questions before going to the gate for your MSP flight. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be flying from DTW to FCO, via AMS. I have a 2 hour layover in AMS. Is this enough time? What is the procedure when we arrive to AMS? Do we have to collect bags?
Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate.
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.
