  • arrive from Korea by KLM and transfer to LON with Easy Jet
    Apr 29, 2014
    I will be flying AMS from Incheon, Korea by KLM on 04:55 03MAY and depart to LON Gatwick 07:05 by Easy Jet same day. Please advise whether transfer time is OK and what is arrival and departure terminal and gate number, procedure.


    AMS only has one terminal. Once you clear immigration and claim your baggage you will have to check it at the EasyJet counter, which should be in the same building.


  • arrive from Detroit depart to Entebbe

    I'll be arriving from Detroit, USA and departing to entebbe , Uganda with a 65 minute layover? Will i make my flight?


    all of the above flights are on Delta / KLM.


    Yes, Amsterdam allows sterile International->International connections so you will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and pass through security.

    I will be traveling with KLM from Panama To AMS and just have 1:20 minutes to pick up the baggage, check the passport and take one more flight with KLM to Helsinki. will be the time enough?


    That should be enough time. AMS is built to handle tight connections.


  • KLM connecting flight

    Connecting KLM from Houston to KLM Glasgow on an August weekend, with 2 hour layover. Is that enough time and what procedures will we have?


    Since you are arriving from a non-schengen country and transferring to another one, you will just have to go through security at your departure gate. That should be plenty of time.


  • Delta to KLM transfer
    Mar 9, 2014
    What terminal does Delta usually have for arriving flights and what terminal does KLM have for departing flights? To Nairobi. Thanks


    Amsterdam only has one Terminal and allows sterile transfer, so just follow the signs from your arriving gate to your departure gate.


  • Transfer time non-connecting flight
    Mar 9, 2014
    Flying from Rome (via Munich) with Lufthansa at 1030 a.m. Non-connecting flight with KLM to Canada at 1230. Do we pick up our luggage, go through customs, then to a KLM baggage drop off point? Is 2 hours enough for an international flight? I will have already checked in online.


    You will not have to go through customs in Amsterdam as Rome, Munich, and Amsterdam are all within the Schengen area. So you will just have to pick up your bags at the Schengen Baggage claim and check them with KLM. Alternatively, it never hurts to ask if the Lufthansa agent in Rome can check your bags through to your KLM to Canada. Lufthansa and KLM do have an interline agreement. You will have to show your KLM flight confirmation to the Lufthansa agent if you want to try this.


    Thank you so much for your very helpful answer. Relieves a lot of stress!

    Is 1hr 40min enough time in Amsterdam for a connection from Houston/USA onwards to Venice, Italy? Do we need to pick up suitcases? Or, is the only security check at the gate for the second flight? Many thanks!


    You will go through Schengen immigration and security when you cross over the Schengen side of the terminal. You won't have to claim your baggage.


    How long does that Schengen security check typically take?


    It depends on the time of day and day of week, but probably 10-20 minutes.


  • Gates - 2 hours
    Mar 20, 2014
    MSP to AMS, at what gates does Delta arrive? Is 2 hours enough transfer time when switching to Royal Jordanian to AMM? Departure gates?


    Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B, C & D gates; At AMS, airlines are not specifically assigned to Concourses /gates. Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (Arrivals 1 & 2 and Arrivals 3 & 4 are on opposite sides of the center.) - simply follow signs to your connecting gate. 2 hrs transfer is enough time.


    do I have to collect my bags? do I have to go through a passport or security check? If so where?


  • Do I need ti retrieve baggage
    Feb 19, 2014
    I am flying from Bremen to Minneapolis via Amsterdam. What terminal do I arrive in, do I need to retrieve my luggage, and what terminal do I depart from? All booked through delta.


    Amsterdam Airport has only one terminal; its airlines are not assigned. You are arriving there on a Schengen flight & depart for a non-Schengen flight (security check will be at the gate area). Your luggate will automatically be transferred. For Airport layout & trrafer, I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

  • 1h 10m Connection time with smaller kids
    Jan 12, 2014
    Hi, we are planning a trip with 2 kids (2 and 6 years) from Zuerich to San Francisco. There is a flight with KLM Cityhopper arriving in Schiphol at 8:40 with the KLM Connection flight leaving at 9:50 (e.g. 1h10m time). Is this too big a risk to take? Usually international flights board 40min ahead, will that be a problem? Thank you for your help!


    Since the earlier flight is an easy option I would probably do that, although the later flight would probably be OK.


  • Connections time 1h.10min AMS-ATL

    Hi, I have not been flying from Schiphol in a long time, our time between landing and takeoff is 1h 10 min. We fly from Stockholm - Amsterdam - Atlanta. How is the security checks and the times for these between gates? We are flying with Delta (KLM), on a weekday, and in the afternoon, (booked the entire trip through ... experience? thank you! How does the service if we miss the flight, experience?


    You should have plenty of time. If you do miss your connection due to a delay you will be rebooked to Atlanta on the next available flight, possibly through another Delta hub, such as Detroit or NY-JFK.
