    Hello, I am flying from Prague to Amsterdam ( I am Czech citizen if it matters) and than to Atlanta. I know I have to pick up luggage in ATL but in Amsterdam will they automatically transfer luggage on plane? I am flying with Delta. Thank you

     

    You arrive at AMS as a Schengen (domestic) arrival. If Delta is the only carrier you use, or if you bought both flights on one ticket, your bags will automatically be transferred to your connecting flight. For terminal details & transfer options, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the text.

     

  • sea delay with ams transfer to MAD

    My daughter is on first international flight alone, and it was delayed slightly out of seattle. With landing in AMS at 8:30, and MAD flight boarding at 9am...any possibility of her making? Still confused if she needs to recheck her own luggage non-schengen to schengen? If delayed...who does she talk with to help expedite her through? She is unaccompanied.

     

    At AMS she will have to go through non-Schengen (foreign) procedure, before she will be able to proceed to her non-Schengen (domestic) flight. 30 mins transfer time with checked luggage is therefore too short - unless she will only have a carry-on bag. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    I am flying from Munich to Cardiff via Amsterdam with a piece of hand luggage. Is 45 minutes enough to make my connecting flight from Amsterdam to Cardiff?

     

    If both flights are on KLM that should be plenty of time.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time - note that you have 1 hr 15 mins, not 50 mins. You will arrive in A, C, or D and depart from C or D. If you arrive in A, you take the mobile lounge or Aerotrain to C or D. The flight probably won't wait for you if you're late. You'll spend the night in a hotel and fly to London the next morning.

     

  • Bucharest, Romania through Amsterdam to Toronto, Canada

    I will be traveling from Bucharest, Romania through Amsterdam to Toronto, Canada with a layover of approx. 2hrs. Which is the transfer procedure in this case? Do I have to take my luggage and go through a new check or it will I have to follow a gate to gate transfer?

     

    If Romania is a member of the Schengen countries, you will be considered a domestic arrival and can proceed directly to your connecting gate. If not, you need to go through 'non-Schengen' (passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, re-check in bags). Same in Toronto. For terminal & transfer details, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    Thank you. No Romania is not yet Schengen member. One more question regarding the luggage: For both legs of the trip (Bucharest to Amsterdam and Amsterdam to Toronto) I will be traveling via KLM. Will they do the automatic transfer of the checked luggage or should I have to retrieve them on AMS and go through with baggage check as you said?

     

    Thank you. No Romania is not yet Schengen member. Nevertheless, I still have some questions/doubts: 1. Shouldn't my ittinerary be considered International to International? Doesn't follow a sterile transfer procedure? 2. Regarding the luggage: For both legs of the trip (Bucharest to Amsterdam and Amsterdam to Toronto) I will be traveling via KLM. Will they do the automatic transfer of the checked luggage or should I have to retrieve them on AMS and go through with baggage check as you said?

     

    Yes, your connection is International to International. Yes AMS has sterile international connections. You do not have to do anything with your baggage. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and through security. Sujun, please stop giving horrible and incorrect "advice"

     

    Where you check in depends on what airline you are flying. If you are flying KLM you check in at Terminal 5. If you are flying United you check in at Terminal 1. You do not go through customs on departure. You will go through EU immigration and customs when you arrive in Amsterdam.

    we arrive in ams at 735am and depart to ath at 835. we are flyin with delta and 7 family members. i want to make sure we have enough time? are the gates close?

     

    It's doable, but hurry (AMS is well-marked, just follow signs. NOTE: Arrivals from a non-Schengen (foreign) country at AMS: The passport will be checked upon arrival at, and departure from, Amsterdam Airport. On arrival, after passport control, follow signs to 'Baggage Hall' located on the ground level, retrieve your bags, & go through customs for security check. As you connect to a Schengen country, go through ticket control & security check; if connecting to a non-Schengen country, security check will be at the gate. Note that the transfer desks offer transfer information, and serve as check-in for a connecting flight - or - use of the self-service transfer kiosk.

     

    There is a 24 hour dunkin donuts in Terminal 5 and a food court with nice benches to sleep on in T4 - http://www.sleepinginairports.net/usa/newyorkjfk.htm

    Flying from ATL (Delta operated) to AMS then to New Delhi (KLM operated). Do I have to pick my baggae at AMS and then Check in again? Or will it get automaticaly transferred to my Destination at AMS?

     

    2 hours 45 minutes should be sufficient. Once you clear customs and re-check your bags with United you can go through security and take the shuttle bus to Terminal A where your BWI flight will likely depart, or take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security there (the AirTrain is currently under construction but will be finished by the end of July).

    Arriving 8:35 AM in AMS, connecting to KLM going to EDI at 10:00 a.m. Is that enough time

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time - AMS has sterile intl->intl connections so you will just have to go through security at your departure gate.

     

  • connecting with elderly traveler

    My husband will be traveling with his father from Budapest to Amsterdam on KLM, and then on to Atlanta. Can you tell me how far they will have to walk and if 1-½ hours will give them enough time to make this connection. Are there shuttles in the airport for elderly? Thanks!

     

    At AMS, the bow-shaped terminals has gates A - M; walking time from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins. Walking to the end of B gates takes 15 mins; for the C gates 7 mins; for the D gates 8 mins; for the E gates 1 min; for the F gates in the Center 2 mins; for the G gates 5 mins; and for the H & M gates 7 mins. On arrival at connecting (non-Schengen - foreign) gate you go through security check. Not sure about transport, but airlines provide wheelchairs if reserved ahead of time.

     

    They should not have to walk far. AMS is a fairly compact airport by international standards and they should have plenty of time. If your father-in-law can't walk easily you should request wheelchair service from KLM.

    I will be flying into AMS from Norway and my connection for Warsaw is only 50 mins. WIll this be enough time? Normally, I have an hour or more so just wondering if anyone has had any troubles? I saw that yesterdays flight to Warsaw left from Gate C but not sure where I will be arriving....

     

    Your transfer time at AMS should suffice. For detailed terminal & transfer information open www.ifly.com/ams, click on click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to text, including terminal layout, arriving/connecting procedures, & flight transfers.

     

  • arrive from Korea by KLM and transfer to LON with Easy Jet

    I will be flying AMS from Incheon, Korea by KLM on 04:55 03MAY and depart to LON Gatwick 07:05 by Easy Jet same day. Please advise whether transfer time is OK and what is arrival and departure terminal and gate number, procedure.

     

    AMS only has one terminal. Once you clear immigration and claim your baggage you will have to check it at the EasyJet counter, which should be in the same building.
