  • Vueling FCO to AMS-AMS to KEF icelandair
    Jan 14, 2017
    Wondering if we will have enough time to catch my next flight before booking tickets. Flight is scheduled to arrive at 12:15pm and next flight is at 2:00pm. We would like to have one checked bag with us if time allows.


    On two separate reservations with checked bags I think that's just a little too risky for my tastes. You could do it without checked bags.


  • Layover time at Amsterdam
    Jan 13, 2017
    I will be traveling from Mumbai to Amsterdam (Jet Airways) and onward to Munich (KLM), the layover time at AMS is 1 hr 20 min (in the morning at around 8.30), both legs of the journey booked on the same ticket. Is the layover time sufficient?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Security and Schengen Entry passport control in Amsterdam.


    Thank you

  • connecting BIO and JFK

    We have 1h 50 min from BIO to AMS and then to JFK. Will that be enough? What if we can't make it for a delay?


    Yes, that's plenty of time. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to New York.


    Hi. Leaving BOS on delta (KLM operated) in October arriving at AMS 5:50am with 1 hr 25 min layover and KLM to Rome. Do I have enough time to make my connection. No checked baggage.


  • Abu Dhabi - Amsterdam - Paris
    Jan 4, 2017
    Hi all. Arriving from AUH 2.55pm (KLM operated by Etihad), then KLM to Paris CDG with a 1hr 35min layover. Will I need to collect and recheck in luggage? Will this layover time be sufficient? Thanks!


    You do not have to do anything with your bags. Just go through Passport Control and Security and to your departure gate.


  • Delta to KLM Cityhopper
    Jan 4, 2017
    Hi, I am flying in July from Seattle through Amsterdam to Belfast. I have 1.5 hour layover. It's my understanding I will need to go through passport control and get a bus to my connecting flight. Will that be enough time? And how soon do you need to be at the bus before your departure time? There is only the one flight to Belfast per day. Thank you.


    I meant to add that I will be arriving at 1300. I don't know if the time of day makes a difference. Thank you.


    You will not have to go through passport control as you are not entering the Schengen Area. You have enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time.


  • AMS to Barcelona
    Jan 3, 2017
    I will be flying on Delta landing from Seattle in AMS at 8:30 a.m. Sat. 13 Jan - I will be taking a KLM flight to Barcelona that leave at 10:30 that same morning - is this enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation then you just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.


  • 1Hr 10Min layover enough time from Budapest to Boston?
    Dec 30, 2016
    We are arriving from Budapest on Czech Airlines 1:35 and leaving on KLM to Boston at 2:45pm. We can walk briskly but how easy is it to find the security area and is it a quick process to go through? Self serve kiosks? Can we cut the line if our first flight is late?


    Firstly, Czech does not fly from Budapest to Amsterdam. Are you connecting in Prague first or is your flight actually on Malev or KLM? Secondly, you will first go through Schengen Exit Passport Control, then go the the gate that is on the monitors, this isn't actually a gate but a place where they will ask you some security questions. After you complete that they will tell you your real gate and stamp your boarding pass and you will go to your real gate.


    Yes you are right . The flight from Budapest is Delta operated by KLM then the next flight to BOS is via Delta. So do we have enough of a layover?


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • 1 hr time connection

    Yes, all you have to do is go through security, US Security questions, and to your departure gate.

Lay over in amsterdam of 4 Hr 55 min. will my immigration security check will be done in AMS before my AMS to Belfast flight, or on arrival at Belfast? DEL-AMS flight is KLM and AMS-BHD flight is KLM City hopper flight, so that means i will get my baggage upon arrival in BHD?

    Cameroonians do not need a transit visa for sterile transfers of the EU.


  • Enough time between connecting flights
    Jan 31, 2017
    I'm looking to catch a Vueling flight from Barcelona to AMS that lands at 6.35pm, and then catch a KLM flight to Seoul at 9.20pm. Will 2 hours and 45 mins be enough time to make the connection? I will need to collect luggage and re-check in as they are separate flights. Thanks for any help!


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    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 KLM from manchesteron to Warsaw
    Dec 21, 2016
    I am travelling from Manchester to Warsaw via Schipol and have a 90 minute transfer time. Is this is enough time as my wife has an injured knee and can't walk too fast


    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Manchester is on-time.


  • Connecting in AMS to ATL with only one hour lay over
    Dec 20, 2016
    I am taking the flight from Stuttgart to Amsterdam connecting there to Atlanta. All is booked through Delta. I was wondering if 60 min will be enough to catch the connecting flight


    Yes, that is enough time. You have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and US Security questions in Amsterdam.


    Thank you


  • Transferring through AMS
    Dec 18, 2016
    I will be flying from the US to Copenhagen, with a short transfer/layover in Amsterdam. What security/passport control will I need to go through in AMS since it and Denmark are both Schengen countries? I read something that says I need to make sure my passport gets stamped because I'm entering a Schengen area and I watched a video from Schiphol airport that said I will not need to go through security again and can just proceed to my next flight because they accept the US's level of security but it seems like every site says something different. Thanks!


    You will go through passport control in Amsterdam, they will stamp your passport there. Yes, because you are coming from the US you will not have to go through security.

    Arriving into FRA on Lufthansa from YVR (Vancouver, Canada). Will have checked bags. Do I need to clear EU immigration & customs and do I need to retrieve my checked bags before going through customs / immigration? Will be flying to Brussels on Brussels Airline (SN) flight going to Edinburgh (EDI) as the final destination.


    Did you mean to ask this on the Amsterdam airport page? Is your route YVR-FRA-BRU-EDI? If so then you will go through passport control in Frankfurt but if all flights are on the same reservation you will not claim and re-check your bags.


    Thanks - meant to post on FRA page. Thanks for figuring it out.
