  • Connecting flight
    Nov 12, 2015
    Traveling with delta from Florida to Munich , have a layover in Amsterdam I need to collect my luggage and drop off at another Area....


    As long as both flights are on the same reservation you will not have to do anything with your baggage in Amsterdam.


  • Connection BCN-AMS-LAX
    Nov 9, 2015
    Hello! Mi family and I are traveling from BCN to AMS with KLM (we arrive at 8:30am) and we have a connection flight to LAX with the same airline at 9:50am, all in a single booking; we have 1 hr and 20 minutes of layover, assuming the first flight is on time. I am not sure if we need to go through security again in order to take our connection flight. I have no information about the terminals and gates our flights arrive/depart. Should we just walk to our departing gate at our arrival or do we need to go through extra steps like passport control first (we are mexican citizens)? I really appreciate any help you could give us since our layover is pretty tight.


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen exit Passport control (which is a very brief process) on your way. You have plenty of time.


    Awesome, thank you!


  • India to USA via Amsterdam
    Nov 7, 2015
    My parents have valid USA visitors visa (B2). Do they still need to have transit visa for AMS. Also they are travelling tomorrow. Please let me know, what i need to do ?


    Since they have a US Visitors visa they do not need a schengen airport transit visa. Sorry that I had overlooked that earlier.


  • Delhi (India) to Seattle (USA) via Amsterdam
    Nov 7, 2015
    My Parents are coming from Delhi to Seattle via AMS. Total overlay time is 2:30 hours. Is it good enough ? Also do they need any transit visa ? If i am not wrong they only need to go through security check.


    Indian citizens require an Airport Transit Visa to transit a schengen country, even if it is a sterile transit as is the case in Amsterdam. They have enough time.


    Thanks for you reply. My parents have valid USA visitors visa. Do they still need to have transit visa for AMS. Also they are travelling tomorrow. Please let me know, what i need to do ?


  • United to Amsterdam and then KLM to Bergen, Norway
    Nov 6, 2015
    I booked a United flight to Amsterdam, arrived 9:30AM. I booked a separate flight with KLM that same day to leave at 11:55. Will I need to go through Customs, Ticketing and Security again. Will I need to get my bag and recheck it on the KLM flight. Is this all enough time? thanks!!!


    If you have hcecked bags, yes, you will go through Schengen passport control, claim your bags, then walk through customs, take your bags to the KLM check-in counter, check them, go through security and to your departure gate. If you don't have checked bags then you can just go through Schengen passport control and to the KLM transfer desk or your departure gate if you are able to check-in online. You should have barely enough time if you check bags.


  • Transfering from Malta to AMS to Canada to US
    Nov 5, 2015
    We will be connecting in AMS from Malta to Toronto and have 1 hour 5 minutes. Will we be able to make our connecting flight.


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as all tickets are on the same reservation and bags are checked through. You will just have to go through Schengen exit passport control.


  • Connection in 45 Mins
    Nov 4, 2015
    My KLM flight is from Moscow-Amsterdam-London with a very tight of 45 minutes of transiting in AMS Airport > 1) Do i need to go through passport control? 2) WIll i make it Thanks


    You do not have to go through passport control but you will have to go through security. This is a difficult connection, but not impossible and KLM has several flights from Amsterdam to London if you miss your connection.


  • Transfer Process at AMS
    Nov 2, 2015
    I am traveling from Portland, US to Delhi via Amsterdam. I see generally flight coming from Portaland comes at terminal 3 and Delhi flight departs from Terminal 2. I also see there are transfer terminals like T5, T9 etc. Do I have to go to any Transfer terminal or straight out from 3 to terminal 2 ? Will there be any security check in ? If yes where ? My checked-in baggages are through from PDX to DEL.


    I don't know where you're seeing that. Amsterdam only has one terminal. All you have to do in Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Dublin to Toronto via Amsterdam
    Nov 2, 2015
    Would 50 min layover be enough to get through everything. Arrive from Dublin at 09:25 and leave for Toronto on different airline at 10:15, Jan 2nd. Or best to pay an extra $100 CAD to get an extra hour layover time?


  • 50 minute stopover from Dublin to Amsterdam and going to Toronto?
    Nov 2, 2015
    Flying from Dublin to Amsterdam, arriving 10.15am. And fly out at 12.05 to Toronto, Jan 2nd. Would this be enough time to get through everything? It's two different airlines (Aer Lingus from Dublin, and Air Canada from Amsterdam)


    For two separate tickets with checked bags 50 minutes would be impossible. However, if tickets are on the same reservation that should be possible.


  • connection time
    Nov 1, 2015
    incoming on Delta from Seattle (Delta metal), departing to Kenya (KLM metal). 70 minute scheduled connection time in January. Business class. Time enough to make connection or different terminals? Thx.


    That's more than plenty if your flight is on time. There is only one terminal in Amsterdam.


    Yes. But a long walk between concourses and I read that the at-the-gate security is gone, so that means that there's security elsewhere and probably more central.


    Since you're coming from the USA you do not have to go through additional security.


    OK. Sounds good.


  • getting from Terminal to terminal
    Nov 1, 2015
    I am trying to connect with someone in the airport during our layovers. We are on completely different flights, airlines, destinations. Is it possible to pass between terminals? I am on Scandinavian Air Berlin to Amsterdam. She is on KLM Delhi to Amsterdam. Thank You


    Amsterdam only has one terminal


    Oct 31, 2015
    Hello, I purchased a single ticket from MSP to DEL with a two hour layover. I do not have a transit Schengen visa. Is that a problem? For some reason my flight shows that my incoming flight arrives at Terminal 2 and the connecting flight to Delhi India leaves from Terminal 3. I'm in the flight right now, and freaking out. Please help.


    Amsterdam only has one terminal. You should be fine.

    Hi, I am travelling from Cork, Ireland to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and will have 1 hour 5 min layover at AMS. Can I make it on time to the departure gate? Both airlines are KLM


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Am flying from Nigeria to london heathrow on KLM. I have a lay over of 60 minutes. I was wondering if there will be enough time to pick up my lugages and check in to my KLM connecting flight to London.


    If both tickets are on KLM on the same reservation you do not have to pick up your luggage in Amsterdam. You will just have to go through security and to your departure gate.
