  • 1 HOUR LAYOVER
    Apr 9, 2016

    I'll be travelling from BHX to KUL with 1 hour layover in AMS. Do I need to go through passport control and will it be too rush for the transfer? I'm travelling on Malaysian passport. Thanks.

     

    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you do not have to go through passport control. Assuming both flights are on the same reservation, on your way to KUL all you have to do is go to your departure gate, on your way back to BHX you just have to go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, both the sectors are on the same reservation by KLM. What is the distance between the arrival and departure gate? Is the one hour layover time enough to make the connecting flight?

     

    That should be enough time.

     

    Thank you.

     

  • 1:30 connection at AMS

    Hi, I'm flying to SOF from Boston and have 2 hours connections to AMS. Is that going to be enough time? On my way back it's even shorter SOF-AMS-BOS with 1;30 hours connection. Thank you for your help!

     

    I'm flying with Delta and Bulgaria Air.

     

    I also should have mentioned that the flights are on the same ticket.

     

    Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked baggage?

     

    Yes, same reservation. And yes, we have checked baggage.

     

    Then that should be enough time both ways.

     

    Thank you!

    Our Delta flight from Oslo lands at 8:20AM on Tuesday, and our Delta flight to PDX takes off at 10:00AM on the same Tuesday. Same ticket, have checked luggage, two travellers. Is 1hr 40 minutes enough time for this transfer?

     

    Yes, that's plenty of time. You just have to go through Schengen exit passport control, US Security questions, and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you so much. What a relief!

    Flying DL to AMS, then KLM to Edinburgh, with 1 hour 20 min to connect. Seems short. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes, it should be enough time. Since you aren't entering the Schengen Area you don't have to go through passport control and can go directly to your departure gate.

    Flying Delta from EWR - AMS and a separate reservation AMS - SOF. Luggage will have to be collected and re-checked. Is 2.5 hrs enough time for that?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Do i need to go through customs and immigration if i have a layover

    I am flying from ATL->AMS(1.5 hour layover)->Cape Town SA. I am on Delta to AMS and then KLM from AMS->Cape Town. Do we have to get our checked bags, go through customs/immigration and recheck or are the bags transferred directly and we do not have to do the above? Our layover is only 1.5 hours.

     

    No, all you have to do in Amsterdam is go to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

  • 1 hour 15 Min layover- Enough time to change flights?

    Hello, Our layover time was changed to 1hr 15 mins. We are flying KLM from Vancouver BC to Venice Italy. Is 1 hr and 15 mins enough time to make our connecting flight in Amsterdam? Our tickets are continuous from Vancouver BC to Venice Italy also on KLM from Amsterdam to Italy.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate.

     

  • 2.5 hours enough?

    Arrive United from DC, have to collect and check bags for KLM to Kilimanjaro. Can I do it?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi. Travelling ATL-AMS with Delta then AMS-NCL with KLM (All booked on the same booking). I have checked in onlne however, Delta say I need to recheck for AMS-NCL - this has not happened on previous occasions - can anyone advise? Thanks Anna

     

    Yes, you will just have to stop at the KLM transfer desk to get a seat assignment. It's likely that there are no seat assignments currently available.

    I am arriving from FRA with a connection to MAD on IB. i guess KL1764 will arrive on concourse B and IB 3723 will depart on concourse D. Layover is 40 minutes. Is that enough, are there any checkpoints to pass? It is a Schengen Connection, so there should be no more passport or baggge checks.

     

    If you have no checked baggage or both tickets are on the same reservation you just have to from your arrival gate to your departure gate and should have enough time.

     

    Hi. We do have checked baggage but usually just move gate to gate. Not sure why Delta won't let us check in for flight from AMS-NCL when we booked everything together. Do you think we will have to collect and recheck baggage? Thanks, Anna

     

    Delta has no say in it. It's KLM policy that dictates. They should transfer your bags to Iberia.

    I'm traveling with KLM from Frankfurt to Amsterdam and Amsterdam to Salt Lake City. I only have 55 min for my connection. Is my connecting flight in the same terminal? Freaking out lol

     

    Amsterdam has only one Terminal, so yes.

     

    Thank you so much.

    We will arrive in AMS on Delta and have confirmed tickets on Transavia from AMS-PSA...will we be required to exit security area in order to catch our connecting flight?

     

    If your tickets are on two separate reservations, yes, you will have to exit security to claim your bags from Delta and then re-check them with Transavia.

     

    Do transit Visa required in this case. Any fees needs to be paid to Ams airport

     

    Are you saying that we need a visa to transit through AMS? We have entered Europe numerous times in AMS and gone to other countries and we have never been required to have a visa. We always present our itinerary an flight information when asked. If something has changed in the last 9 months, please let me know!

    Hi, we're traveling from Venice to AMS and then on to MSP. We have 90 minutes layover in AMS. Will have checked baggage. Flying on Delta both legs. Will we have enough time? Also, will we need to do anything with our bags in AMS or just go through customs when we get to Minneapolis?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in AMS. You will just go through Schengen exit passport control, US Security questions, and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

  • 2 separate tickets, do I need a visa to re-check luggage?

    Hi! I'm flying through Amsterdam from Kyiv (1 ticket) and then from AMS to KL. Looks like there's no way to check in the luggage from Kyiv straight to KL. Do I need a Schengen visa to exit the airport, collect luggage and check in to the second flight? Also, how much time should be budgeted for that (haven't bought the Kyiv-AMS ticket yet). Thank you!

     

    Yes, you will need a Schengen Transit Visa and about 3 hours in AMS to make this transfer if you travel on two separate tickets.

     

  • BCN to KUL with connection at Amsterdam

    I fly from Barcelona to Kuala Lumpur with connection at Amsterdam, the transit time is only 1 hour. Is this too close of a connection? The tickets are from KLM Airlines.

     

    That should be enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control in Amsterdam, where some people have been reporting some problems lately.
