    I have a KLM flight from Delhi to Belfast City airport via amsterdam. Lay over in amsterdam of 4 Hr 55 min. will my immigration security check will be done in AMS before my AMS to Belfast flight, or on arrival at Belfast? DEL-AMS flight is KLM and AMS-BHD flight is KLM City hopper flight, so that means i will get my baggage upon arrival in BHD?

    Cameroonians do not need a transit visa for sterile transfers of the EU.


  • Enough time between connecting flights
    Dec 23, 2016
    I'm looking to catch a Vueling flight from Barcelona to AMS that lands at 6.35pm, and then catch a KLM flight to Seoul at 9.20pm. Will 2 hours and 45 mins be enough time to make the connection? I will need to collect luggage and re-check in as they are separate flights. Thanks for any help!


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Transfer KLM from manchesteron to Warsaw
    Dec 21, 2016
    I am travelling from Manchester to Warsaw via Schipol and have a 90 minute transfer time. Is this is enough time as my wife has an injured knee and can't walk too fast


    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Manchester is on-time.


  • Connecting in AMS to ATL with only one hour lay over
    Dec 20, 2016
    I am taking the flight from Stuttgart to Amsterdam connecting there to Atlanta. All is booked through Delta. I was wondering if 60 min will be enough to catch the connecting flight


    Yes, that is enough time. You have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and US Security questions in Amsterdam.


    Thank you


  • Transferring through AMS
    Dec 18, 2016
    I will be flying from the US to Copenhagen, with a short transfer/layover in Amsterdam. What security/passport control will I need to go through in AMS since it and Denmark are both Schengen countries? I read something that says I need to make sure my passport gets stamped because I'm entering a Schengen area and I watched a video from Schiphol airport that said I will not need to go through security again and can just proceed to my next flight because they accept the US's level of security but it seems like every site says something different. Thanks!


    You will go through passport control in Amsterdam, they will stamp your passport there. Yes, because you are coming from the US you will not have to go through security.


  • Connections from Canada

    Arriving into FRA on Lufthansa from YVR (Vancouver, Canada). Will have checked bags. Do I need to clear EU immigration & customs and do I need to retrieve my checked bags before going through customs / immigration? Will be flying to Brussels on Brussels Airline (SN) flight going to Edinburgh (EDI) as the final destination.


    Did you mean to ask this on the Amsterdam airport page? Is your route YVR-FRA-BRU-EDI? If so then you will go through passport control in Frankfurt but if all flights are on the same reservation you will not claim and re-check your bags.


    Thanks - meant to post on FRA page. Thanks for figuring it out.


  • Arriving from US and connecting to IN
    Dec 18, 2016
    We will be arriving around 0830 on Delta and will be connecting on Jet Airways departing at 1120, we will have checked bag that will need to be claimed and rechecked with Jet Airways, what are the chances of making the Jet Airways FLT? The checked luggage can not be transferred over with tickets we have.


    This connection will take place in AMS.


    I think that is enough time as long as the Delta flight arrives on-time and everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks ZAP, You are awesome. Happy holidays to you and your team.


  • transfer from inbound Boston flight to Edinburgh UK
    Dec 15, 2016
    Arriving AMS on a Delta flight form BOS. Travelling on to Edinburgh on KLM Cityhopper flight. Will have checked baggage. What customs/immigration do I clear and do I have to retrieve checked bags to do this? What gate(s) do the Cityhopper flights depart from?


    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate since you are not entering the Schengen Area.


    Thanks very much for this!

    I'm flying KLM YEG(Edmonton) into AMS with ETA 10:20, then departing on a separate reservation on KLM 13:25 for Heathrow. Would KLM transfer my luggage in Amsterdam, this way I only need to go through transit? From the blogs I understand that one needs at least 3 hrs if one needs to pick-up luggage and check-in again,


    If you show both reservations to the KLM agent in Edmonton they should be able to check your bags through. You should have enough time either way.


    Thanks you so much for your answer


  • Connection flight at AMS
    Dec 8, 2016
    Flying from Belfast International Airport to AMS by easyJet, arriving at 12.30 and taking a flight to Larnaca at 15:00 operated by Transavia. Please could you tell me if it will be possible to go to gate directly without going through security again? I am thinking to get a present (liquids) from Duty free shop and Belfast airport and not sure if I will be able to take them with me.


    If you have checked bags that won't be possible.


    Many thanks for the answer. I will have only hand luggage. In that case is it ok?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time then. You can go directly to your departure desk or the Transavia transfer desk if you aren't able to check-in online.


  • Connecting KL-SQ
    Dec 8, 2016
    Flying business class on KLM from Budapest and connecting in Amsterdam to Singapore on SQ. I checked with KLM and they said baggage could be checked through to Singapore. With Schengen Exit Passport Control, is 1h 40m enough for transfer?


    If the baggage is checked through, yes, that should be enough time. You will likely still have to go to the Singapore transfer desk for your boarding passes.


  • 1 hour connection time -is this enough to time?
    Dec 5, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight with KLM from Glasgow to Amsterdam then with connection time of only 1 hour to make Delta flight from Amsterdam to Salt Lake City. Will I make the Delta flight in time??


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connecting 2 reservations
    Dec 5, 2016
    Ill be connecting in Netherlands on KLM flight from Estonia to an American Airlines flight to Philadelphia a 2 1/2 hour time between arrival and take off. Do I have enough time to get my American Airline flight?


    forgot to mention that I'll have checked bags.


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. This would be a lot easier if you can do it without checking bags.
