  • 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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.


  • Connecting Flight - 50 minutes!

    We will land in AMS from Edinburgh at 0825 (KLM flight) and depart AMS for Atlanta at 0920 (KLM flight). Will we have to go through security / passport control and is 55 minutes enough time? Thanks


    You will have to go through the US security questions (very brief). You should have enough time.


    Thank you :)

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Hi, I am flying from Paris CDG to Amsterdam AMS then to Calgary, Canada YYC. Only have 55 minutes layover time in AMS, am I able to make it? Thanks in advance!


    That should be plenty of time. All you will have to do in AMS is go through Schengen exit passport control and go to your departure gate.

    Is 1 hour enough for transfer to US via Schiphol? Bags are checked.


    Where are you flying into AMS from? Are both tickets on the same reservation?


    From Stockholm. Yes tickets are on the same reservation.


    Then, yes, that should be plenty of time. You will just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and US Security questions in Amsterdam, both of which are very short processes.

    We are travelling on separate tickets from London to AMS (BA) to Hoi chi Minh.( Malaysian) We have 2hrs 30mins to get our connection will this be long enough. Will we go through immigration/check in or only pick up and check in luggage?


    Since you purchased separate tickets you will have to go through Schengen passport control, claim your bags, re-check it, and then go through Schengen exit passport control and security. You should have just enough time.


  • Connecting from LHR to IAH
    Oct 20, 2015
    Is 90 minutes enough time to connect in AMS from an easyJet fight from LGW to a United flight to IAH?


    Without checked bags that should be enough time. With checked bags that will be difficult.
