  • ATL to AMS to RAK with Delta
    Aug 13, 2014

    Hi, I am a US Citizen and I will be traveling from Atlanta to AMS to RAK in Marrakesh. Is 1 hour and 45 minutes enough time to connect in AMS? Thanks!

     

    Sorry, it is through KLM.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. As both flights are outside schengen all you have to do in AMS is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.

    Upon arriving at Schipol, I will need to collect my baggage as it cannot be 'checked through' to my destination. After doing so, will I be required to pass thro' Immigration/Customs and then repeat to re-enter OR It is possible to collect my baggage and proceed directly to my next departure area?

     

    Non-Schengen to non-Schengen flights don't require immigration proceedings. Pick up your bag on arrival, check it in with connecting airline, go through security check and on to your connecting gate.

     

    Many thanks 'sumar14'! Your answer is exactly what I wanted and has prevented any problems upon arriving at Schipol. Now if only Schipol etc could be so efficient and as responsive?

     

  • Traveling with all carry on from Seattle to AMS to Rome via easy jet.

    We are flying in on delta from Seattle then taking easy jet to Rome. We we'll have no checked bags. Do we have to go through customs and security to get on easy jet flight? Thanks!!!

     

    You will go through EU immigration and customs, then have to check in for your EasyJet flight, then go through security. There will be no immigration when you arrive in Rome since both the Netherlands and Italy are in the Schengen area.

     

  • transferring at Schiphol for flight to Canada

    My travel agent is suggesting a KLM flight from France that arrives in Schiphol and then we would have to transfer to another KLM flight for Montreal, Canada, I can see a map showing concourses labelled by letters but no info on which concourse one can find departures for North America, is 55 min really enough? (We have EU passports)?

     

    You won't have to go through any immigration in Amsterdam and AMS is made for tight connections. It should be enough time.

     

    just to let you know FRance is the worst airport i have ever gone through and everyone we spoke to after agreed ,never never never again. Amsterdam is great and helpfull, best airport ever and polite .even if we have lost a suitcase ,probably now after 5dys never to be found again.

    2 hour 15 minute wil be enough to custom check, bag drop, security check etc when flying two different flight? I fly from uk use KLM then to Milan, italy use easy jet. Is that space of time enough? Thanks a lot.

     

    That will be tough but it should be enough time. Make sure to check-in online for your easyjet flight.

    We arrive from Minneapolis via KLM/Delta flight, have a 2h40m layover and then transfer to another KLM/Delta flight to Venice, Italy. I get that we have to go thru pasport control for a non. schenegean country...but then what? Do we have to pick up our bags, take them thru customs and recheck before going on to connecting flight. I do not find the Schiphol site to be of any help with these details. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

     

    Indeed AMS site is not clear on that. However - judging from some other large EU airports - after passport check you proceed to baggage claim where you retrieve your bags and go with them through customs clearance - if continuing journey, you need to re-check them in at designated area.

    We are flying KLM Venice to Toronto with a transfer in Amsterdam. Do you know if we will have to clear security again in Amsterdam and if we would be allowed to carry duty free items that we purchase in Venice through Security in Amsterdam.

    we are travelling from manchester airport on mon 4 feb at 6am and arriving at ams at 8.25 am we have 1 hr to get our connecting fklights to cape town what gates do we look for and do we have enough time.thx

     

    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. (Arrivals 1 & 2 and Arrivals 3 & 4 are on opposite sides of the center.) One hour should suffice. For more information about AMS I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Hi due to an airline altering the flight times I only have 40 minutes between flights , one is flybe from BHX , Uk arriving 9.20 am next Corendon to BJL, Gambia leaving at 10.00am, I have booked assistance as I have a disability, but I dont know if this is feasible thee Corendon flight should have been departing at 13.00 hours! Many Thanks

     

    As you have booked assistance, you will be picked up at your arriving gate and transferred to your Corenden flight. 40 mins should suffice.

     

    oh thank you so much I have been stressing over it , even thinking about getting a flight the day before, thanks very much
