Hi, I'm gonna fly from Jakarta to Amsterdam with final destination to Madrid. My ETA in Amsterdam is 07:20 with Garuda Indonesia and ETD from Amsterdam to Madrid is 09:40 with KLM. I booked both flights separately so I will have to go through immigration (non-schengen to schengen), claim my baggage and re-check my baggage with KLM. Do I have sufficient time? Thanks!
It's not impossible but it doesn't leave a lot of time to spare.
Thanks! What's the reasonable minimum connecting time for my case?
I would want at least 3 hours.
Hi, im travelling from sao paulo brazil to amsterdam, but my first stop is in frankfurt where i should go thru immigration check, my flight arrives at 17:45 so im thinking to book a flight from amsterdam to Paris at 18:50 .Do you think i could make it? I will only travel with carry on . And i read transavia is in the same terminal as lufthansa. thank you!
Yes, that would be theoretically possible if you had no checked bags and checked in online for your flight to Paris.
Thank you!!
We'll be travelling with 2 kids in August from Munich to Seattle, USA thru Amsterdam. Transit time is 1 hour 50 minutes. Is it enough time to make the connections? We'll fly Delta (operated by KLM for MUC to AMS). Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit passport control, US Security questions, and go to your departure gate.
Flying from Portland, Oregon (US) through AMS to Turin, Italy as final destination. We have a 1 hour layover in AMS. All flights are with Delta. Will we have to get our checked luggage in AMS or will it be sent through to Turin, Italy? Also should 1 hour be enough time for passport control in AMS? Many thanks!!
Note that your second flight is operated by KLM. Yes, you should have enough time. You won't have to do anything with your bags in AMS.
I fly from Aberdeen to muscat transferring at Amsterdam. Is it a straightforward connection process
Yes, all you should have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be flying on delta flight DL9476 from Lisbon to Amsterdam and from there to Portland (flight DL179).
Both flights are operated by KLM.
Transit time in AMS is 50min.
I tried to look for the terminals/gates, but couldn't find the info.
Will I be able to make it?
Thank you
Note that your first flight will be operated by KLM, but the second will be operated by Delta. You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight. This is a very difficult connection as in Amsterdam you will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and US Security Questions.
I'll arrive to AMS from Bari and there I'll transfer to Edinburgh. I have 1h30 roughly (before the gate closing time). Is it enough? Thanks.
Yes, that is plenty of time.
We only have an hour layover between flights. Booked through KLM on same reservation if that matters. Will we make it as we have never flown internationally before....
Yes, that should be just enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control, US Security questions, and to your gate.
Thank you for the information
Hello, the 12th of January, I will be traveling from Paris to Vancouver, Canada, connecting through Amsterdam. I will have 1 hour and 40 minutes to transfert, is that enough? And will Ihave to recheck my luggage?
Yes, that should be enough time. If both flights are on Air France/KLM you won't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam.
Thank you very much!
I'm taking Etihad Airways in Jan 27th from Kuala Lumpur to Ams and expected to touch down 1405pm on Jan 27th

I'm planning to take 1730pm SAS flight to Copenhagen on the same day. Since I take 2 different airlines (2 different booking), is 3 hours enough for us to catch 1730pm flight? Do we have to collect our luggage and check in again at SAS counter?
Yes, since you are on two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags and re-check them with SAS. You should have enough time.
The process on arrival at AMS would be going through schegen entry passport control> claim luggage > custom checkpoint > re-checkin > passport/security checkpoint > departure hall. Is that right? Assumming the flight is on time, lay over 3 hrs n 25 min is enough
Yes, that is correct and it should be enough time.
