Which Aspire lounge / terminal for flight back to Humberside
i was wondering we have a 6.5 layover in AMS coming in on a delta flight leaving with KLM
how easy is it to leave the airport and what would i need to do
We are flying from Geneva to Estonia, however we make a stop in Amsterdam for 4 and half hours, would that be enough to take an Uber to the city and back and make it on time, we have to check in one bag. (KLM to LOT-Polish Airlines)

Thank you for your time and all your help!! Have a great day.
Hi, I have a transfer international flight on my way back and will have 2h 45 min layover time. Is it enough to take railconnection to the city centre and get back? :)

I dont have to collect the checked in bags and I am a EU citizen.
I have a flight from STR to EWR via AMS Do I have through security again in AMS ?
My wife and I have a six hour layover in Amsterdam. Do we have enough time to leave the airport and do a bit of sightseeing and get back for our continuing flight?
WhAt is the best way to do this? Cab or train. How far out of town is the airport?
The most convenient way to get from Schiphol airport to Amsterdam city center is by train or by taxi. Both take about 25-30 minutes. So you will have some time to see a little bit of Amterdam. This site has some tips about what you should visit:

I am flying from Moscow to Ams with Aerfloat arriving at 4.10PM (AMS time) and I have different flight to madrid at 6.40PM AirEuropa. In between I have to check-out and check-in my luggage.
Could you please let me know is this transist time is sufficient?
That will be difficult but should be just enough time.
Are 50 minutes enough time for a connection flight ( coming from Stuttgart, going to Newark ) ?
Yes, that should be just enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.
Thank you
I arrive SLC-AMS at 8:40a and next flight departs at 4:30p for Berlin (8 hour Layover). Is there time to take the train into the City to sight see and then get back to the airport in time to catch my 4:30p flight? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time.
I have a flight from Rome to Ams on KLM arriving at 1:00 pm with a 90 minute layover. From Ams I fly to Seattle at 2:45 pm. My tickets were purchased separately. I will have carry on only. Will I need to go back through security? Thanks!!
Make that 2:30 pm flight
