  • Atlanta to Hamburg
    Aug 10, 2016
    I'm flying from Atlanta Ga to Hamburg Germany. Do I proceed on to my gate or do I have to collect my bags and do customs and passport in AMS or will I do all of that in HAM? I'm flying Delta and KLM to HAM?


    In Amsterdam you will go through Passport control and to your gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags.


  • 50 Minute Layover
    Aug 8, 2016
    We are arriving via Delta from the US, on a 50 minute layover to Edinburgh, UK. IS that enough time, and do we need to go through Passport Control?


    You do not have to go through passport control since you are not entering the Schengen area. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Atl to Amsterdam then transfer to Italy
    Aug 4, 2016
    We will be arriving in Amsterdam from Atlanta early morning. Will we need to go through security or customs if we are transferring to a KLM flight to Rome? How much time would be required? Thanks


    You will go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. About an hour is sufficient.

    I am travelling from Salt Lake City (USA) to Mumbai (India) with layover at AMS.SLC -AMS (Delta) and AMS-Mumbai (Jet Airways).I suppose i dont have to collect the baggage and it will be transferred to the connecting that true? Do I have to go through immigration/passport check in AMS?


    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Toronto to Warsaw
    Jul 31, 2016
    I'm currently flying Toronto to Warsaw with a layover in AMS. Going Toronto to AMS is Jet Airways, and AMS to to Warsaw is LOT. The layover is only 1 hour and 20 minutes. I'm worried this is not enough time to make the connection, should I look at rebooking?


    I do have checked luggage


    I booked via expedia, and while it's two tickets (each with its own confirmation), there's only 1 itinerary number. If that makes a difference


    When i check on jet airways manage my confirmation page, it shows the connecting flights with LOT on there. Sorry for pestering, I'm just going through a bit of a manic episode worrying about this


    1 eticket number too


    That should be enough time. All you have to do in AMsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection Time of 65 minutes

    I am traveling from Budapest to Salt Lake City (USA) with a 1 hour 5 min layover at AMS. The first flight is KLM and the second is Delta all booked on the same itinerary. Will that be enough time and can we just go from one gate to the other?


    Yes, that should be just about enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control and US Security questions in Amsterdam on your way to your departure gate.


  • lsbon to seattle

    my niece is traveling today on Delta/KLMfrom Lisbon to Seattle with a stopover of an hour in Amsterdam does she have enough time to transfer. I know she departs from GATE E17 to seattle just cant fing the gate for her arrival from Lisbon


    That should be just enough time. After she arrives she will have to go through Schengen exit passport control and US Security questions.

    hi. i am traveling form Norway to Colombia. My first stopp will be in Amsterdam. i am coming by Sas airlines and changing to United and flying to Houston (my second stop). My question. is it enough time to change the plane? do i need to claim my luggage and check it again or do i need just passport control? all flight is one booking.


    You won't have to claim your luggage in Amsterdam, just go through Schengen Exit passport control, US security questions, and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.


  • 1 hr 15 min layover
    Jul 22, 2016
    I am travelling from to London via amsterdam and I have a 1 hr 15 min layover. Is this sufficient? Also, since my flight is a partnership between kenya airways and KLM do I have to recheck my baggage?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam. You should have enough time.


  • Customs
    Jul 19, 2016
    Coming from SEA to AMS onto GLA. Do I go through customs in AMS or will my bag go straight to GLA? Arriving via Delta, KLM to GLA. Thank you


    Your bags will go straight to Glasgow. All you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Transfer between airlines with checked luggage
    Jul 18, 2016
    I will be traveling from US (Seattle) AMS on Icelandair. I will then transfer to a KLM flight to Tanzania. My understanding is that I will have my passport checked and then pick up my checked luggage. Where will I go next?, check in at KLM counter, go through airport security and then to KLM depature gate? Or will I need to go through customs also? How much time should I allow?


    You will actually go through Schengen entry passport control in Keflavik. In Amsterdam you just have to claim your bags and go to the KLM counter to re-check your bags, then go through Schengen Exit passport control and security.


    Thank you.. To confirm - I will not need to go through customs, is that correct? Is Schengen Exit passport control and security one checkpoint or two?


    It's two checkpoints, but Schengen Exit passport control is typically a very brief process.


  • flight to tel aviv
    Jul 17, 2016
    I have 2 hours between connecting flights between KEF - AMS, and AMS - TLV. It is a change of airlines, tickets purchased separately. Under normal circumstances, will I make it? Thank you.


    Do you have checked bags? With checked bags I don't think you will be able to get them to the Check in desk for your Tel Aviv flight before the cutoff.


    sorry I should have said that from the start. Carryon only, no checked luggage


    Then you should have enough time as long as your flight from Iceland is on-time.

  • Icelandic flight from AMS & luggage storage
    Jul 14, 2016
    Icelander says for Schiphol: Terminal 3, Handling agent: Swissport, but all the maps of AMS show concourses. Do they mean Concourse C? We arrive on KLM from Venice and want to store luggage for 10 hours between flights. Thanks!


    Just ignore it - Amsterdam only has one Terminal.


  • 50 minutes enough time?
    Jul 13, 2016
    My 65 year old mother is flying solo for her first trip to Europe. She is flying on Delta from SEA to AMS with a connecting flight to STR. Will a 50 minute connection time be enough to make her flight to STR?


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    She has some minor physical limitations and is not a fast walker. Is it a long distance between where her flight from the US will arrive and where the KLM City Hopper flights depart from? Should she request mobility assistance?
