  • Terminal and concourse
    Nov 9, 2012

    Hi, My flight DL 603 will reach at Terminal 2 and concourse E 17.I want to know where it is and another flight KL6065 departure will be on same terminal and different concourse

     

    I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Due to a change in flight times by Corendon I only have 40 minutes between aflybe flight from Birmingham UK, BE101 and Corendon CND597 to BJL Gambia Africa, will I make it any advice greatly appreciated please. Many Thanks

     

    My search for your BE101 flight from Birminham was unsuccessful (BE stands for Mandarin Airlines) - howeve this is what you need to know at AMS Airport: (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. As to Corendon connecting flight, I was also unsuccessful in finding a flight - but I did find the airline contact: Corendon Dutch Airlines (CND) - tel. 0031 (0)23-5268979; e-mail info@corendon.nl ; site: www.corendon.nl. It uses Checkin desk Departure 3; Ticket desk, Departure 3; Baggage handler Servisair 0031 (0)20-7952700. The problem with your 40-minute window will be whether your BE101 flight will transfer your bags to your Corendon carrier - if not, you would need, on arrival at AMS, pick up your bag and re-check it in with Corendon at their desk. To give you an idea of how long you would take to transfer from gate areas B-C, D, E, F, G, H or M - walking entire walkway would take 15 mins. For details open www.ifly.com/ams, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the text.

    Leaving LAX on Delta; connecting in AMS on KLM to NBO...will my luggage be booked all the way - from LAX to NBO?

     

    As both Delta & KLM are members of the Sky Team, I presume Delta will transfer your bags to your KLM flight; however, make sure by contacting Delta. If not, you would need, on arrival at AMS, claim your bags & check them in on level 2 (the Departure level) and get your boarding pass. This is what you need to know about AMS terminal: 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 can walk from B to M gates in a mere 15 mins.

    Hi, I am arriving at 6 a.m. on Sept 12 via DL70 and my friend is arriving on the same day 2 hrs 10 mins later via DL266. Can you suggest a place where we can both meet. We will not be having our phones. So please help me? We are both travelling from the US.

     

    When you arrive at AMS, at the baggage claim look at overhead screens for your friend's arrival time and meet him in the Arrivals Hall, closest to the information counter. Inside the first level are separate sections, marked as 'Arrivals 1' through 'Arrivals 4'(find out which Arrival section he will come to: This level also includes Information desks, bars & restaurants, stores, a hairdresser, a service center, a supermarket and baggage storage & lockers.

     

  • Will I have enough time?

    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

    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?
    Aug 6, 2012

    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.
