  • Transfer Zurich-AMS-Tokyo Narita

    Hi. I would like to ask wether 55 minutes are enough time to transfer at Amsterdam Schiphol. I will fly from Zurich to Tokyo Narita. Is the luggage going to make it too or is it likely that it would arrive after me? Thank you.

     

    It should be enough time. Your transfer should be fairly straight forward and AMS is made for tight connections.

    Who are you asking? This is not the Amsterdam Airport nor any airline's website.

  • 2 hours layover enough for Zurich->AMS->Boston? (different tickets)
    Nov 19, 2013

    hi!!! I will be flying from Zurich to AMS on Monday morning (probably with Swiss Air or KLM). then I have 2 hours from arrival until my next KLM flight departs from AMS to Boston 1) does anyone have idea if this 2-hour interval is sufficient? given that I need to collect my luggage & re check-in with another airline? (do I need to go to passport control on both ways? I'm not a European citizen) 2) does it make any difference if flight Zurich -> AMS I fly with Swiss Air vs. KLM (given that the ticket will be separated from flight KLM->BOS anyway)? thank you so much for your input!

     

    Swiss may be able to check your bag through to KLM in Zurich even though you're on two separate tickets. They do have an interline agreement and European airlines tend to be pretty good about that. If you fly KLM you can definitely get your bag transferred to your second flight and get all your boarding passes in Zurich so all you would have to do in Amsterdam is go from gate to gate. Either way you will not have to go through any immigration in Amsterdam as both Zurich and Amsterdam are in Schengen.

     

    Thank you very much!

     

  • United from Houston, transferring to JRO

    Are there particular gates that the UAL flights from the US arrive and the KLM to JRO depart? Would I have to claim and recheck luggage? Mahalo...

     

    Your United flight will arrive in Pier E or G and your KLM flight will depart from D, E, or F. If your tickets were bought on one reservation your bags should be checked through to JRO and you won't have to do collect them in Amsterdam.

     

  • Travelling via Delta to America

    Hi, I will be travelling to America via Amsterdam soon. My flight operated by Delta should arrive in at 8.40am on a saturday (from the UK) and my connecting flight also operated by delta leaves at 10.35am. I am first time solo flyer so am a bit scared of connections! Im wondering if that is enough time to be able to do it successfully, and what steps I need to go through to have a smooth transition? Thanks!

     

    Delta does not fly from the UK to Amsterdam, so that flight will actually be operated by KLM. Just find out your departing gate upon arrival and follow the signs to that gate. You will go through security when you get to your gate.

    I have 2 hours in AMS before departing to JRO. Does anyone know which gate/terminal I will arrive at from the US and which gates I will depart? I'm flying KLM, operated by Delta all on one ticket. Will I need to pick up my bags and go through customs in AMS or will I do that in JRO?

     

    You will not have to go through EU immigration in AMS, you will just go through security at your departure gate. Amsterdam only has one terminal with numerous Piers, which are all connected. Connections at Amsterdam are typically very intuitive.

    I am a Belarusian citizen and have a US student visa. Will I need to recheck my luggage in Amsterdam on my way from Minsk, BY to Chicago, US? And if I do need to recheck it in, do I need any transit visa to access the baggage claim area in Schiphol?

     

    If coming from Minsk, via Amsterdam, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

  • From DUB-AMS-BKK

    Hi. I'm planning to fly from Dublin to Bangkok (Thailand) by transiting in Amsterdam. I have 1 hour 25 minutes between arrival to AMS and departure for BKK. Would this amount of time be sufficient? Considering that I'm a non-EU national and my flight would be at the end of December this year. Thank you very much.

     

    Your transfer time should suffice. 1. Arrivals from a non-Schengen (foreign) country: note that 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. 2. if connecting to a non-Schengen country, security check will be at the gate. 3. NOTE: Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B, C & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (Arrivals 1 & 2 and Arrivals 3 & 4 are on opposite sides of the center.)

    I'm flying in from Istanbul with KLM (operated by KLM) and then to Paris also with Air France (operated by KLM). The transfer time is 45 min. Is this time enough? I have non-EU passport. What is the transfer procedure? Should I collect my luggage, check-in, go to security and passport check, or should I go directly to the gate?

     

    1. At AMS, Arrivals from a non-Schengen (foreign) country: note that 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. If you have nothing to declare, proceed to the Arrivals Hall through the green passage way (this area also has the main exit & train station). 2. Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B, C & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (Arrivals 1 & 2 and Arrivals 3 & 4 are on opposite sides of the center.) 3. Look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate numbers. 45 mins is tight but doable.

     

    Thank you very much, very helpful.

    Hi, I will transit first time via Schiphol. Serbia to UK. Connecting flight is by Easyjet. I have only one hand bag (no hold luggage). Do I have to pass passport control at this airport and how long would it take from arrivals 2 to gates H. Thanks in advance.

     

    Unless Serbia is a Schengen-Country member, non-Schengen arrivals & departures need to go through passport check. Arrivals 2 leads up to Departures 2 which uses the E gates; prior to boarding you need to go through security check. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Hi, we will be flying from Manchester to ams to catch a flight to Chicago. there is a hour between landing and the following take off. is this enough time? all flights are with KLM will we need to collect baggage,go through security checks etc? how far apart are the terminal /arrival departure gates? All seemed ok when I booked with travel agent but they say it is fine. I just need some reassurance !!!! cheers phil

     

    You shouldn't have to claim your baggage - there will just be security at the gate. You won't know your exact gates until day of departure but AMS is made for tight connections.

    We are traveling from MSP to AMS via DELTA then on to VCE on Alitalia with a 55 minute layover. Is this enough time to make our connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. AMS is made for tight connections.

    hi i am planning to go to gerrmany and going to book a ticket soon. i want to fly from jakarta to stuttgart with KLM, im wondering if i need to take my baggage and re check it during my transit in amsterdam? it says that the airplane from amsterdam to stuttgart is operated by KLM cityhopper flight 1869 i have a visa that says its valid for germany (a long stay vsa type D), is it ok if i transit in amsterdam? Thank you

     

    You will clear Schengen immigration in Amsterdam but your baggage should be transferred automatically. I'm not an expert in Visa laws, but since both Amsterdam and Stuttgart are in Schengen and you have an onward ticket to Germany you should be OK with the visa you have.

     

    hi thanks for the answer,this is my first time flying. which gate do i need to go? is 2 hours enough time to reach the gate from my arrival gate?

     

    You won't know the exact gates until you get to Amsterdam. AMS is made for tight connections. If you get lost or need help KLM will have people there to help.
