Hi, I'm flying through AMS on 2 separate tickets. I'll be arriving on Emirates and departing on Delta. I believe I will have to collect my bags, go through customs, and then re-check in at departures.. Can someone let me know how long this would take (approximately)? Thanks!
I would want at least 3 hours between flights.
Thanks for the quick response! The flights I were looking at had a 2hr50min layover at AMS. Sounds like that will be a little risky. I may have to pick a different option unfortunately.
Does Belavia land in the transit area in Amsterdam Schiphol? My wife needs to connect to Tuifly to cancun from Amsterdam. She has a layover of 2hours 30min.
I also need to know if someone is there to assist her with the luggage if it's two separate tickets. One is from Misk to Amsterdam and the other is from Amsterdam to Cancun. She has approx 2 1/2 hours layover. Can I call someone to assist her?
There is no such assistance. She shouldn't pack more than she can carry. She will have to go through passport control, claim her bags, re-check them with TUIfly, and go back through exit passport control and security. She has just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

Hello! My mom will be flying from Minsk, Belarus (Belavia) on Sept 29 to Salt Lake City(KLM) through AMS. She has 1h and 20 min to get to her gate? Do you think it is enough time?
If it's two separate reservations that will be very difficult. On the same reservation that should be enough time.
I'm flying in from Boston in KLM and laying over in Amsterdam for an hour and 40 minutes in November. Is this sufficient time to go through security, etc. before I catch my flight to Cape Town?
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi! I'm flying into AMS with 1hr 20min layover. Do I have time to get my VAT from global refund? And shop a little at duty free?
I'll be in terminal 2 for my layover and connection.
Amsterdam only has one Terminal. I don't think you have enough time to do all that.
When we flew back from Rome last year there was a little box where you deposited the form you filled out previously. The VAT was refunded to our credit card. Piece of cake. Just ask someone where to make the claim.
Hi, my mom is flying from Salt Lake City to Moscow through Amsterdam. What Are her steps in AMS? Does she need to check in one more time? And what about baggage and passport control?thank you very much!
If she's flying Delta/KLM then all she has to do in Amsterdam is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate.

I am taking a flight from BHX (Birmingham) to AMS, then from AMS to Minneapolis. The flight from BHX to AMS is with KLM, and then the flight from AMS to MSP is with Delta. Will I have to recheck my baggage at AMS?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam.
