Hello. My son will be flying to AMS from U.S, arriving at 6am on Delta. Then, he has a separate reservation where he will be going to Rome via Alitalia at 11:35am. He will have a checked bag.Will he have to go through passport control, claim bag, go through customs, recheck bag with Alitalia, and then go through security? Thanks for any help you can give.
Yes, that is what he has to do. He has enough time.
Thank you. I just have one more question...does he go through passport control as soon as he gets off first plane, before he boards 2nd plane, or does he have to go through it both times? Thanks again!
He will just go through it once, when he enters the Schengen Pier of Terminal 1.
Arriving on KLM from Glasgow at 11:50 and transferring to Delta for 12:50 US flight (am US citizen). Is this enough time? What security/passport control will I have to go through?
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you do not have to go through passport control. You just have to go through US Security questions and to your departure gate.
Thank you very much
We are arriving from Norwich to AMS and connecting to the Calgary flight, both on KLM. What checks will I go through upon arrival in AMS?
All you will do is walk from your arrival gate (which will probably be a bus gate) to your departure gate
Thanks for your response. Very helpful
Hi . I am trying to catch a flight to Doha shortly after arriving in AMS with Ryanair from dublin. I am wondering about connection times between Ryanair desk and Qatar airways? it is tight for time so needs to be close!
Do you have checked bags? How much time to do you have?
Am flying from Split, Croatia to Salt Lake City, Utah, USA with a connection in Amsterdam. Flights are both KLM. Will I have to go through any customs and immigration? I am not allowed in the Shengen zone as I have exceeded my 90 days.
You will not go through passport control in Amsterdam. You should be OK. I understand your situation, it's really hard to get from Croatia to the USA without going through the Schengen Area. Your only real other option would be to go through Ukraine or Russia.
Arriving from US into AMS on Delta at 840am connecting to KLM at 935am to Rome. will I have enough connect time?
That will be difficult but not impossible.
Hello!
I have a inbound flight from Barcelona on Vueling Airlines that arrives at 09:25. I have a seperate booking on British Airways departing for Philidephia At 10:55. Assuming I just need to go through passport control, is 1:30 enough time for a connecting flight? (Schengen to Non-Schengen connection)
Thanks for your input!
Do you have checked bags or not?
No checked bags!
Then that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight from Chicago to AMS (Delta) arriving at 6:45 can I make a easy jet flight at 8:30?
With no checked bags, maybe. With checked bags, probably not.
Hi, I will be travelling from Mumbai to AMS on KLM KL3814 operated by Jet airways and connecting to PDX on KLM KL6009 operated by Delta- all on same reservation. Connection time is 1hr35 min. I have 2 small children- will I be able to make the connection? di need to go through security & walk to gate or just walk gate to gate?
Yes, that is enough time. You will go through security and to your departure gate.
FLYING FROM DALLAS TO MOROCCO THROUGH AMS WITH 1H50MIN LAYOVER. IS THAT ENAUGH TIME? WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH CUSTOM AND HAVE OUR BAGGAGE CHECKED IN AMS. AND HOW TO GET FROM ARRIVAL LEVEL 3 TO DEPARTURE LEVEL 1 ?
Yes, that should be enough time. If both flights are on KLM all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
