  • Arriving from US and connecting to IN
    Jan 31, 2017
    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.


    Hello, were you able to make the connection? Was it enought time? I have a similar trip coming. Your advise, would really come in handy. Thanks


  • transfer from inbound Boston flight to Edinburgh UK

    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.

    My parents are travelling by Jet Airways from Mumbai - AMS then taking the connecting flight to Edmonton,Canda.What terminal MUM- AMS arrives and Which Terminal AMS-YEG will take off from.What will be the distance.IS there a map.


    Amsterdam only has one Terminal.


  • distance
    Dec 2, 2016
    I'm going to take an Alitalia flight & have connecting flight to catch (KLM). How far is the distance between these 2 gates?


    It depends where you're flying to on KLM. KLM uses almost the entire airport.


    I'm flying to Kuala Lumpur.


    Then it could be a 10-15 minute walk (you will also have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control).


    may I know the gates number?


    You won't know the gate numbers until the day of your flight.


  • Connection time etc
    Jan 19, 2017
    we are arriving in from a flight from Kuala lumpur, at 12:40pm and have a separate flight to Manchester at 14:15pm with checked baggage, is this possible to make this witht he time?


    On two separate reservations, no I don't think that's enough time.


    is there anyway we could have the airline of our first flight transfer our luggage for us so we dont have to go through check in again? would that work


    What airlines are you flying?


    malaysia airlines operated by emirates, then we need to get our baggage, then check in again to bravofly for the next flight, is there anyway the airlines can transfer our luggage to save time and so we dont have to check in again?

    Andy, did you make it or did you have any problems with this situation?

    Hi, I'm gonna fly from Jakarta to Amsterdam with final destination to Madrid. My ETA in Amsterdam is 07:20 with Garuda Indonesia and ETD from Amsterdam to Madrid is 09:40 with KLM. I booked both flights separately so I will have to go through immigration (non-schengen to schengen), claim my baggage and re-check my baggage with KLM. Do I have sufficient time? Thanks!


    It's not impossible but it doesn't leave a lot of time to spare.


    Thanks! What's the reasonable minimum connecting time for my case?


    I would want at least 3 hours.


  • Transit in amsterdam
    Nov 23, 2016
    Hi, im travelling from sao paulo brazil to amsterdam, but my first stop is in frankfurt where i should go thru immigration check, my flight arrives at 17:45 so im thinking to book a flight from amsterdam to Paris at 18:50 .Do you think i could make it? I will only travel with carry on . And i read transavia is in the same terminal as lufthansa. thank you!


    Yes, that would be theoretically possible if you had no checked bags and checked in online for your flight to Paris.


    Thank you!!

    We'll be travelling with 2 kids in August from Munich to Seattle, USA thru Amsterdam. Transit time is 1 hour 50 minutes. Is it enough time to make the connections? We'll fly Delta (operated by KLM for MUC to AMS). Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit passport control, US Security questions, and go to your departure gate.




    Nov 21, 2016
    Flying from Portland, Oregon (US) through AMS to Turin, Italy as final destination. We have a 1 hour layover in AMS. All flights are with Delta. Will we have to get our checked luggage in AMS or will it be sent through to Turin, Italy? Also should 1 hour be enough time for passport control in AMS? Many thanks!!


    Note that your second flight is operated by KLM. Yes, you should have enough time. You won't have to do anything with your bags in AMS.
