Last year I regularly travelled through AMS on my way too and from other destinations and it was very quick and straightforward. I travelled this week from BRS to ZRH with KLM and the passport control check took ages and I only got my onward flight as they held it for me. Are KLM going to review their minimum connection times - mine was 50mins - as many people appeared to be missing flights because of these checks. I don't remember them before, are they new?
Flying from Aberdeen to Amsterdam with KLM with Connection time for KLM Dubai flight of 55 minutes. Passengers are in mid 60's.
Flight statistics for our flight from Aberdeen to Amsterdam shows over 50 delays of 0-15 minutes from Jan to Sept 2016
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I fly klm Dublin to Amsterdam and then have 1hr 35mins to connect with klm flight to Beijing. Is that enough time to make connection? Thankyou.
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have 1 hour and 30 minute layover going from Seattle to Barcelona, connecting in Amsterdam. Is this enough time? (This is all booked on the same reservation).

Is the same layover time adequate for a flight going from Seattle to London and connecting in Amsterdam (1.5 hour connection time and on the same reservation)?

Thank you
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I am landing tomorrow from Madrid to Amsterdam at 8:40 with KLM and I have a connecting flight to Zagreb at 9:20 with KLM as well. Is that enough time?
That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control in Amsterdam.
Hi! I'm flying YYC (Calgary, Canada) to AMS with KLM. We arrive at 8:20 and then our next flight to KGL departs at 9:55 also with KLM. Will that be enough time? We will have checked bags.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have a klm flight arriving ams 1:35 p.m., and another klm flight, on same reservation, departing for dtw at 3 p.m. Is that adequate time to transfer?
Yes, that is enough time.
I will be flying KLM from PRG connecting in AMS then on DL to SEA. First, I will be on 2 different tickets with no checked bags. How long should I allow for connecting in AMS. I am looking at connections at around 1 hour 45. When do I clear customs? I am guessing Seattle? Thank you for any help.
You will go through Schengen Exit passport control in Amsterdam and US Immigration and Customs in Seattle. You can get your Delta boarding pass from the transfer desk in Amsterdam if you can't get it online. You should have enough time.
I will arrive in Amsterdam at 12.30 coming from Stuttgart with KL 1870. I will connect to Newark at 13.20 with KL 6179 ( operated by Delta )
How far is the wY from gate to gate and do I have to go through security again? Are 50 minutes enough to connect?
Thank you
We plan to arrive on United from Houston at 920am then connecting to a Vueling flight to Lisbon departing at 1055am. I work for United so we will be standby on the United portion than confirmed on Vueling on a separate reservation. Is this enough time to connect? Thank you.
With no checked bags you barely have a chance if you check in online for your Vueling flight and run.
