Flying into Amsterdam and land at 9:20 am. Would like to book a 11:50 am flight to Stockholm on Norwegian. We will have to get bags, customs, and then check in for Norwegian flight. Will we have enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will travel with 2 different airlines and I need to pick up my luggage at Amsterdam airport, and go trough the departure area and customs again. I read a lot comments about very long queue in custom's area. How much time do I need between my 2 flights? (one inside Europe, the other outside Europe).
Thank you!
What exact countries are you flying to/from and airlines are you flying on? Your question is too vague to answer.
I am flying from Trondheim to Amsterdam, then I need to pick up my bags. My second fligth is from Amsterdam to Singapore. Same on the way back.
Then I would want 2.5 hours between flights.
I'm flying from Boston to Paris with 1hr and 45 minutes to transfer in Schiphol airport. My question is I would like to leave a carry on bag in a locker in Schipol airport for a few days and was wondering if I would have enough time to deplane, do customs, drop the bag and get back thru security for my connecting flight? I will already have a boarding pass. Thanks
I think that would be really close whether or not that's enough time.
I have a connecting flight in Amsterdam for 2 hours and 15 minutes. The route is DTW-AMS- JNB and the flights are Dl134 and KLM 591. Is this enough time to make the connection
Yes, all you have to do in Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am coming in late on Ryan Air from Dublin with checked baggage. I need a place to sleep for an early am flight to Seattle on KLM. What airport hotel would be the most convenient?
Since you'll need to claim your bags re-check them with Delta the next morning, you'll have to stay in a regular hotel outside the transit area, such as the Sheraton, Hilton, or CitizenM.
Hi we will be arriving tomorrow from humberside, transferring to singapore with a one hour gap in between landing and departing. Is this an essy transfer and does it take long to collect the bags?
If it's two separate reservations you have to go through passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with Singapore, and then go through security. One hour is not enough time for that. If it's only one reservation all you have to do is go to your departure gate, getting your Singapore boarding pass from the transfer desk along the way if you don't already have it. 1 Hour is sufficient for that.
I have the boarding passes already. After collecting the baggage, will there still be sufficient time and if not what happens next?
I think by the time you get your luggage the bag check cutoff for Singapore will have already passed. If so you'll have to pay a change fee and fly to Singapore the next day.
I'll be traveling from atlanta to copenhagen, with a connection in amsterdam. Will I go through passport control when I land in amsterdam?
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Amsterdam.
Flying in from US on August 14, arrive 10:50 am - need to catch RAGOM flight to Bucharest at 11:50 am. Do I have enough time if no checked bags? Do I do customs in Bucharest or Amsterdam?
You are not entering the Schengen Area, so you will go through Passport control and customs in Bucharest. I don't know what "RAGOM" is. Do you mean "TAROM"? You have enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.
Yes Romanian air, my typo
No, they are not on the same reservation, I fly in on KLM and then have to move to TAROM. One hour exactly, and pass though customs. I may have to choose another flight? Thank for your quick response!
In that case, I don't think an hour is enough time.
I don't think it is enough time either, thank you for helping!
We are flying from Chicago to Amsterdam on DL flight operated by KLM arriving at 6:45 am and departing on DL operated by KLM at 7:40 am we will have bags. 1. Is this enough connection time and Do we have to pick up our bags and go through customs?
All you have to do in Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We are flying from Seattle to AMS in May. Arrival at 13h and connecting to Air France (HOP!)1337 (Embraer)at 14h55 to Strasbourg and Bordeaux. We will have to retrieve luggage and check it in again. Do we have time to make the connection
If it's two separate reservations with your bags not checked through to Bordeaux that will be really difficult.
