  • Will I have enough time?
    Aug 28, 2012
    1
    I'm arriving on Flight KL6038 from Atlanta at 8.25AM and my departure flight is KL0571 at 10:05AM to Kilimanjaro. This is only a 1 hour and 40 minutes layover. I can't really find out what is normally the arrival gate for this Atlanta flight in AMS. Does anyone know this? I'm wondering if I will have enough time to make my flight as well as whether my checked baggage will make it to my next flight to Kilimanjaro. Thanks!

     

    While I cannot give you the gate number for Arrival/ Departure at AMS - this is what you need to transfer: (a) Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (c) At transfer kiosks you can check connecting flight information or book a new fight. Transfer desks T2 & T3 are located in Lounge 1; desks T4 & T5 at D gate area; desk T6 at E gate area & desk T9 at G gate area. (d) B & C gates are at the very right end of the bow-shaped terminal; north of it are the C gates arranged in a Y-shape; around the bend are the E gates, followed in the center by the F gates; right thereafter is entry to the G, H & M gates (G gates are to the right, H & M gates to the left). Walking from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins. Walking to the end of B gates takes 15 mins; for the C gates 7 mins; for the D gates 8 mins; for the E gates 1 min; for the F gates in the Center 2 mins; for the G gates 5 mins; and for the H & M gates 7 mins.

     

  • which gate/terminal used for Sao Paulo
    Aug 23, 2012

    good morning, I am flying with KLM from Vienna to Amsterdam and then to Sao Paulo GRU - KL 0791 at 10,05 on Sept. 2. I have very short time for transfer. I would like to know which gate/terminal is used for Sao Paulo. Thank you for your answer

     

    1. On arrival at AMS 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 & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (B & C gates are at the very right end of the bow-shaped terminal; north of it are the C gates arranged in a Y-shape; around the bend are the E gates, followed in the center by the F gates; right thereafter is entry to the G, H & M gates (G gates are to the right, H & M gates to the left). Walking from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins. Walking to the end of B gates takes 15 mins; for the C gates 7 mins; for the D gates 8 mins; for the E gates 1 min; for the F gates in the Center 2 mins; for the G gates 5 mins; and for the H & M gates 7 mins. 2. Arriving at Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport has two terminals: 'TPS 1 & 2', joined together and appearing as one long building – TPS1 has Concourses A & B, and TPS2 has Concourses C & D - with corresponding gates. Your ticket will indicate which terminal you arrive at.

     

  • Timing??

    We are arriving Delta flight 178 from PDX at 8:30 am and leaving Delta flight 9360 at 9:35 am. I was assuming that the airline wouldn't book us on flights we could not catch ... will we have time for customs, etc.??? Of course, now it is too late to change the flights...

     

    I think you will be able to make it, in spite of customs clearance procedure. Look at your ticket & the overhead screens on arrival to find your connecting flight, gate & departure time. This is what you need to know: (a) Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (c) At transfer kiosks you can check connecting flight information or book a new fight. Transfer desks T2 & T3 are located in Lounge 1; desks T4 & T5 at D gate area; desk T6 at E gate area & desk T9 at G gate area. (d) B & C gates are at the very right end of the bow-shaped terminal; north of it are the C gates arranged in a Y-shape; around the bend are the E gates, followed in the center by the F gates; right thereafter is entry to the G, H & M gates (G gates are to the right, H & M gates to the left). Walking from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins. Walking to the end of B gates takes 15 mins; for the C gates 7 mins; for the D gates 8 mins; for the E gates 1 min; for the F gates in the Center 2 mins; for the G gates 5 mins; and for the H & M gates 7 mins.

     

  • Nbi-Ams 8-25-2012 by DL Airline

    Will be flying NBI-Ams-IAD/Dulles on Aug 25. Is it possible to know if departure gate and if i need to check in bags again? Please advice

     

    1. As a first order of business you need to find out if your Kenya departure airline will transfer your bags all the way to IAD. If not, you need to claim your bag and take it to the connecting airline counter to check it in again. 2. Also, find out about your airline's fees for each leg of your journey - depending on how much baggage you will take along (and if overweight)it could be more expensive than to ship your bags via freight carrier to your end destination. 3. You will need to go through passport check at 'non-Schengen' (foreign) line at AMS, go through customs and proceed to your connecting gate area. Open www.ifly.com/ams - then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the detailed text. (Do the same for Dulles Airport by opening www.ifly.com/iad ) - Departure & arrivals gates depend on the airlines used and your ticket and the overhead screens on arrivals at each airport will indicate your connecting airline flight and gate number.

    In mid-October, US Citizens w/checked in luggage, economy KLM662 transfer to AF1241 with 75 minutes transfer time. Will KLM simply transfer luggage to AF directly or will we have to claim & go thru customs & re-checkin? Thanks.

     

    You need to contact KLM if it will make baggage transfers to Air France - if not you need to claim your bags on arrival and re-check them in with AF at their counter. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams - then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the detailed text regarding terminal layout and transfers.

     

  • Do I have enough time?

    I am planning on flying flights KLM 1278 and KLM 611 on Nov 2 from Edinbourgh to Chicago O'Hare with only a 70 min lay over in Amsterdam (AMS). I am worried about having enough time to make the connection. Do I have enough time?

     

    I have an American passport and will be checking bags.

     

    Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival at AMS will indicate gate arrival and departure number; however, observe the following transfers: Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. You should be able to make it easily within that time period (November is slow). P.S. You need to go through non-Schengen passport check. If you checked in your bags in Edinbourgh at KLM and KLM will also take you to Chicago, there is no need to pick up your bag at AMS.

     

  • Enough time

    Hi I will be travelling on 22/08/12 on flight KL1280 from Edinburgh arriving at 13.40 and connecting with KL685 to Mexico departing at 14.30 leaving only 50 minutes to connect. My wife and I are travelling with 4 kids. We are British citizens. Do we have enough time?

     

    As the UK is not a member of the Schengen Agreement, you will have to go through Dutch non-Schengen arrivals procedure before proceeding to your connecting gate. Your baggage will be automatically transferred. As your transfer time is very short, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams and click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS - scroll down and read details how to transfer.

     

  • Do I need a transit visa?

    I will arrive in Amsterdam from South Africa on my way to Madrid. If I stay in the airport for the 3 hour stopover, do I need a transit visa? I have a Schengen Visa valid for a year, multi-entry

     

    It seems that on arrival at AMS you will be considered a Schengen traveler with relaxed immigration rules - however, I suggest you contact AMS at http://www.schiphol.nl/Travellers/AtSchiphol/Contact.htm to make sure. Note that Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (c) At transfer kiosks you can check connecting flight information or book a new fight. Transfer desks T2 & T3 are located in Lounge 1; desks T4 & T5 at D gate area; desk T6 at E gate area & desk T9 at G gate area.

    Your ticket, as well as the overhead screens on arrival at AMS should indicate arrivals & departures gates. 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 & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. At transfer kiosks you can check connecting flight information or book a new fight. Transfer desks T2 & T3 are located in Lounge 1; desks T4 & T5 at D gate area; desk T6 at E gate area & desk T9 at G gate area. Also if you are a non-Schengen (foreign) traveler, you need to go through immigration /customs procedure on arrival at AMS.

    Hello, I am arriving from Vienna with KLM flight KL 1838 at 08.50 on September 2.Will I have enough time for transfer on flight KL 0791 to Sao Paulo at 10.05 (free time 1h15)? Have I go though the check by arrival and/or departure? I have Slovak (EU) passport. \Will my bag transfer to my flight? Do you know which gate I will use?

     

    At AMS Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. Your ticket should indicate gate arrival & departure gates; also look at the overhead screens for your connectig flight, gate & departure time. As you only use KLM for both flights, your bags will automatically be transferred to your Sao Paulo flight. On arrival, simply follow signs to your departure gate. You have enough time. (Only on your return to AMS will you need to go through passport check & customs clearance.

    I am considering flying from PDX on Delta flight 178 to AMS and will be flying onto CPT on KLM flight 9599 with a 1 hr. 35 min layover. Do I have to go through customs? What terminals do Delta and KLM occupy? Is that enough time? Thank you.

     

    1. Arrivals are on level 1, where you need to go through Dutch Immigration /Customs clearance (non-Schengen procedure) - this can take from 30 mins to an hour, depending on season and time of day. Inside the first level are separate sections, marked as 'Arrivals 1' through 'Arrivals 4': Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. (A Transfer Assistance booth is close to the supermarket.) 2. The Departures level of the passenger terminal has Departure areas 1, 2 & 3, and Concourses with Gate Areas B-C, D, E, F, G-H, & M. Departures 1 & 2 have ticket counters 3 to 16, security checkpoints and access to Lounges 1 & 2 and Gates B-C, D & E, while at the opposite side Departures 3 & 4 have ticket counters 17 to 32, security checkpoints and access to Lounges 3 & 4 and Gates F, G-H & M. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. Your stated time is doable.

    I am arriving from the US with no checked luggage, only a carry on. Do I need to go through customs as I am connecting and flying to Germany? Thanks!

     

    As a non-Schengen (foreign) arrival at AMS you need to go through their immigration process (passport check) before connecting to your next flight. To read up on terminals and connections open www.ifly.com/ams - under QUICK LINKS choose "Terminal Maps" - scroll down for detailed descriptions.

    I arrive in AMS from the US 7/22 at 7:45am and need to connect with Aegean airlines at8:50am. I will have only one carry on bag. Will I have enough time? Which gate and terminal does Aegean use?

     

    On arrival at Amsterdam Airport you need to go through passport control before connecting to your Aegean (code A3) flight. Since I don't have your destination or flight number, I suggest you open http://www.schiphol.nl/Travellers/FlightInformation/Departures.htm - add Destination, flight number and airline, hit "search flight" and then click on "Details" at the A3[flight number] & it will show you gate. Your ticket and on arrival at AMS the overhead screens will also give you details. You have enough time for transfer.

     

    Thank you so much for your reply, as I am concerned. My flight # with Aegean is A31409 with Munich as the destination.
