I am flying with KLM in March on a transfer flight from the UK to Amsterdam then to Amsterdam onto Rome my transfer time ( stopover) is one hour 10 min will this be enough time for me to go through the airport security checks so that I can get to my gate on time.
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Could you please let me know If I will need to have my handbag rescanned at Amsterdam airport as I am worried this could be time-consuming
Thankyou Zap
I have clients arriving from Bordeaux to Amsterdam then on to Copenhagen all with KLM there is a connecting time of 40 mins. Will that be enough time?
thank you
Yes, it's possible but it leaves no time to spare.
We have a 2 hour layover in AMS is it enough time to make connections
Yes, that should be enough time.
YYC to AMS with a 2 hour layover to CPH, to clear customs and security it would be iffy to make that connection especially if our arrival in AMS is delayed, just need reassurance on whether to book a later flight
We are flying with KLM to YEG Canada from FCO, via AMS. We have a 1:40 connection time. Will this be enough time to make this connection?
Yes, that should be plenty of time.
We are arriving business class with carry-on bag on United airlines on an April Thursday at 9:20. Do we have any hope of making a 10:00 RyanAir departure to Dublin since we are not checking bags? Do we need to clear customs before we check in for a connecting flight?
It's maybe possible. Since you aren't entering the Schengen Area, no, you don't have to go through passport control or customs in Amsterdam, but I really don't think you'll make it to the Ryanair gate in time.
What is the minimum connect time recommended when traveling from Warsaw to AMS and transferring to flight to USA?
I would want at least an hour if both flights are on KLM/Delta.
KLM flt 0602 arrive at 09:05 AM from Los Angeles
Flt 3393 operated by Air Europa leaves for Madrid at 10:45,
Can I check bag through to Madrid in LA?
What do I need to do in Amsterdam?
Do I have enough time (1 hr. and 45 min)?





You cannot check your bag through. You have to go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bag, re-check it with Air Europa, and go through security. That will be really difficult.
Actually, that is just correct if you bought the two tickets separately. If they are both on one reservation your bag can be checked through to Madrid. I forgot that Air Europa was in Skyteam.
Travel from San Francisco on Delta 9548 arrive at AMS 9:15 am then change next flight KL1565 to Genoa, Italy at 11:40am with 2 separate tickets. Do I need to go through clear custom and get my bag? Will I have enough time to catch the next flight? Is arrival and departure in the same concourse?
Both of those flights are operated by KLM. If you show your Genoa confirmation to the KLM agent in San Francisco they should be able to check your bag through to Genoa, then all you have to do in Amsterdam is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate (they will be different concourses). You have enough time.
Flying Teesside UK to Amsterdam with onward connection to Houston - both klm flights. Will 90 mins connection time be sufficient in Amsterdam and will luggage be labelled right through without having to collect and recheck in. Ditto for return journey ... Though more connection time in return flights.
Yes, that is enough time.
Traveling back from Dusseldorf to AMS to US. Only have 1 hour connection time. Do we need to go through the passport entry? In previous flights it has taken over 1/2 hour to get through that checkpoint (or more). Based on previous experience, should we take a flight with a longer layover? Has the passport control process improved?
You will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and US Security. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
