  • Airport transfer with re baggage control
    Aug 12, 2016

    Hello, I am travelling from Kathmandu to toronto with two different airliness, Qatar and arkefly. According to Arkefly I need to recheck my luggage in AMS. I will have 5 hours time transit time. So is there any problem with self luggage transfer? Can i receive my initial flight luggage in transfer area? I dn't need visa for transfer but I cant leave airport. Please feel free to write. Can i recollect my luggage and recheck it again to another flight within transfer area ?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to exit the transfer area, so you will have to go through Schengen passport control.

     

    I dnt have schengen visa. Can I transfer my luggage myself then to another flight ( to Canada) ?

     

    You will have to get a full transfer visa from the Netherlands.

     

    Although I belong to non visa exempt country, I don't need transit visa according to embassay because my destination is Canada and I have temporarily resident permit to Canada . So what you say in this case ?

    That should be enough time. If both flights are on KLM they should be able to check your bags through to your final destination at your origin.

    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.

    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.

    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 airline.is 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
