I will be flying from BHX (Birmingham UK) via AMS to BOG (Bogota Colombia) the connection time in AMS is 50 minutes KLM assure me that this is sufficient time for the transfer. Will I have to go through security at AMS? The last time I did this it was a nightmare!!
That is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Am travelling from UK to Istanbul via Amsterdam on Friday 4th August at 18.55. I have 1 hr 50 mins to change in Amsterdam and only have hand luggage, will I have to go through passport control and re-check in when I get there and if so, will I have enough time?
If both flights are on KLM all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
When I land in Amsterdam from California and collect my luggage, where do I go to check into my flight with Air Malta? This is not a connecting flight, how much time will I need and do I need to go through customs again?
You won't have to go through customs again. You will arrive, go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags with Air Malta on the check-in level, then go through security. You'll want at least 2-3 hours.
