I am arriving from BUD on KLM at 8.15 am my flight AA to DFW lives at 10.15-do I have sufficient
time to make a connection?Depart August 30.
With no checked bags that's possible but it will be really difficult if you have checked bags to transfer.
my wife returning to us /green card/permanent resident/flying from Moscow to Amsterdam to minneaplois/.one booking what does she need to do in Amsterdam ?has 4 hour layover// thank you
All she has to do in Amsterdam is go through security, then go to the indicated gate where there will be some US Security questions and then she will go to the actual gate that they tell her. She has plenty of time.
Traveling from U.S. changing planes in Amsterdam to Edinburgh. Entire flight booked through Delta. Delta told me I need to claim my bags in AMS, go through customs, & a KLM representative would be on the other side to check my bag to EDI. I asked about Non schengen/scone gen, and the rep said he never heard of it. Help! What do I REALLY do?
You do not have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Delta rep really has no clue what she's talking about.
Thank you.
Hello, I arrive in AMS at 8am on British airways and have a connection flight at 10:15 am on KLM. These tickets were booked seperate so I'm concerned if I will have enough time with checked bags to get to my flight. Any help would be great. Thanks
You will have to go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with KLM, go through security and possibly Schengen Exit passport control (depending on where you're flying with KLM). That is a difficult connection.
I am flying into AMS from dallas and my return flight arrives at AMS from Prague. Both connections have the same amount of time between flights 2hr20min. Think it can be done ?
Yes, that is enough time.
will I have to go through passport control and security at Schiphol?
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area no you do not.
We have been told by Air Canada that one hour is more than enough time from arrival to departure. Looking at the map it seems the concourses may be far apart. We are arriving with Air Canada at 10:15 and departing with Croatia at 11;20. Is this connection possible? Thank you so much.
Yes, it should be possible. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate since you are not entering the Schengen Area.
We are arriving on Delta from SEA and heading to HEL with a plane change in AMS. We are ticketed through to HEL as a Delta flight, although I know that the actual operator is KLM for the AMS to HEL segment. As scheduled, we have an hour and 15 minutes for ground time between flights. If we check a bag, will it be routed through, or will we have to pick it up and recheck onto the second flight? Would we be more likely to make the connection if we tried to do it as carry on only?
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam. You have enough time.
Thank you very much!
we have 50 minutes to do a transfer from Delta 132 to Delta 9527. First time thru this airport so don't know how far apart the gates are...:(
Any idea if this is enough time ?
Thanks !
Where are you flying from and to? The second flight will be operated by KLM.
I will be arriving in AMS via Delta at 8:30 AM with 1 checked bag. I will then need to exit security and check my bag on a SAS flight to CPH. The CPH flight leaves at 10:05 AM. Is this going to be enough time to grab my bag, check it with SAS, and make it through security and to my gate? I assume I will be running the whole time..
That will be very difficult. i really recommend trying to do it without a checked bag if you can.
Hi, I will be traveling from Portland to Paris via Amsterdam. I have about 5 hours layover and planning to go to Centraal Station. Is that enough time? Would I need to pick up my checked in bags in Amsterdam and then check in again to the Paris flight even though I have single ticket to Paris.

You won't have to claim your bags in Amsterdam. however, you also don't really have enough time to do anything worthwhile there either.
