Hi, I am flying in July from Seattle through Amsterdam to Belfast. I have 1.5 hour layover. It's my understanding I will need to go through passport control and get a bus to my connecting flight. Will that be enough time? And how soon do you need to be at the bus before your departure time? There is only the one flight to Belfast per day. Thank you.
I meant to add that I will be arriving at 1300. I don't know if the time of day makes a difference. Thank you.
You will not have to go through passport control as you are not entering the Schengen Area. You have enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time.
We are arriving from Budapest on Czech Airlines 1:35 and leaving on KLM to Boston at 2:45pm. We can walk briskly but how easy is it to find the security area and is it a quick process to go through? Self serve kiosks? Can we cut the line if our first flight is late?
Firstly, Czech does not fly from Budapest to Amsterdam. Are you connecting in Prague first or is your flight actually on Malev or KLM? Secondly, you will first go through Schengen Exit Passport Control, then go the the gate that is on the monitors, this isn't actually a gate but a place where they will ask you some security questions. After you complete that they will tell you your real gate and stamp your boarding pass and you will go to your real gate.
Yes you are right . The flight from Budapest is Delta operated by KLM then the next flight to BOS is via Delta. So do we have enough of a layover?
I have a KLM flight from Delhi to Belfast City airport via amsterdam. Lay over in amsterdam of 4 Hr 55 min. will my immigration security check will be done in AMS before my AMS to Belfast flight, or on arrival at Belfast? DEL-AMS flight is KLM and AMS-BHD flight is KLM City hopper flight, so that means i will get my baggage upon arrival in BHD?
Hello im a Cameroonian leaving Shanghai airport going to Ecuador,but i need to change the plane at Amsterdam, i dont know if i will have to get a transit visa for Amsterdam , since i will not be leaving the airport and the layover time is 4 hours, please i need a kind response..Thanks you all very much
Cameroonians do not need a transit visa for sterile transfers of the EU.
I'm looking to catch a Vueling flight from Barcelona to AMS that lands at 6.35pm, and then catch a KLM flight to Seoul at 9.20pm. Will 2 hours and 45 mins be enough time to make the connection? I will need to collect luggage and re-check in as they are separate flights. Thanks for any help!
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello, were you able to make the connection? Was it enought time? I have a similar trip coming. Your advise, would really come in handy. Thanks
I will be flying from the US to Copenhagen, with a short transfer/layover in Amsterdam. What security/passport control will I need to go through in AMS since it and Denmark are both Schengen countries? I read something that says I need to make sure my passport gets stamped because I'm entering a Schengen area and I watched a video from Schiphol airport that said I will not need to go through security again and can just proceed to my next flight because they accept the US's level of security but it seems like every site says something different. Thanks!
You will go through passport control in Amsterdam, they will stamp your passport there. Yes, because you are coming from the US you will not have to go through security.
