Flying from Portland, Oregon (US) through AMS to Turin, Italy as final destination. We have a 1 hour layover in AMS. All flights are with Delta. Will we have to get our checked luggage in AMS or will it be sent through to Turin, Italy? Also should 1 hour be enough time for passport control in AMS? Many thanks!!
Note that your second flight is operated by KLM. Yes, you should have enough time. You won't have to do anything with your bags in AMS.
I fly from Aberdeen to muscat transferring at Amsterdam. Is it a straightforward connection process
Yes, all you should have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be flying on delta flight DL9476 from Lisbon to Amsterdam and from there to Portland (flight DL179).
Both flights are operated by KLM.
Transit time in AMS is 50min.
I tried to look for the terminals/gates, but couldn't find the info.
Will I be able to make it?
Thank you
Note that your first flight will be operated by KLM, but the second will be operated by Delta. You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight. This is a very difficult connection as in Amsterdam you will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and US Security Questions.
I'll arrive to AMS from Bari and there I'll transfer to Edinburgh. I have 1h30 roughly (before the gate closing time). Is it enough? Thanks.
Yes, that is plenty of time.
We only have an hour layover between flights. Booked through KLM on same reservation if that matters. Will we make it as we have never flown internationally before....
Yes, that should be just enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control, US Security questions, and to your gate.
Thank you for the information
Hello, the 12th of January, I will be traveling from Paris to Vancouver, Canada, connecting through Amsterdam. I will have 1 hour and 40 minutes to transfert, is that enough? And will Ihave to recheck my luggage?
Yes, that should be enough time. If both flights are on Air France/KLM you won't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam.
Thank you very much!
I'm taking Etihad Airways in Jan 27th from Kuala Lumpur to Ams and expected to touch down 1405pm on Jan 27th

I'm planning to take 1730pm SAS flight to Copenhagen on the same day. Since I take 2 different airlines (2 different booking), is 3 hours enough for us to catch 1730pm flight? Do we have to collect our luggage and check in again at SAS counter?
Yes, since you are on two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags and re-check them with SAS. You should have enough time.
The process on arrival at AMS would be going through schegen entry passport control> claim luggage > custom checkpoint > re-checkin > passport/security checkpoint > departure hall. Is that right? Assumming the flight is on time, lay over 3 hrs n 25 min is enough
Yes, that is correct and it should be enough time.
Hi, I booked a flight from Paris to Amsterdam on the 19th November and just realised that there is only 1hour and 20minutes time between them. I dont have any luggage but even so is this enough? Whcih are the arrival and departure terminals? Thanks
Amsterdam only has one terminal. If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do in Amsterdam is go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
On the 18th of December, I fly into AMS from YVR on KLM with an arrival time of 10:10 am. I need to get a connecting flight to Barcelona soon after landing. (The 2:30 pm flight from Amsterdam to Barcelona is too late as I am trying to make an appointment in the city.) I found a flight with Transavia, which which leaves from Rotterdam at 13:25 to Barcelona. If my KLM plane arrives at 10:10 am in Amsterdam, will I have enough time to get to the Rotterdam airport for the Transavia flight at 13:25? (I noticed that there is a fast train from Amsterdam to Rotterdam, which takes about 25 min.) Thank you.
It's maybe possible, luckily the Rotterdam airport is only a 10 minute taxi ride from the Rotterdam train station. There is an 11:30 AM Transavia flight from Amsterdam to Barcelona that you could make if you have no checked bags.
I have a 1 hr and 5 min. connection time between KLM flights arriving from the US and departing to Nairobi. Will this be sufficient?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
