We are flying KLM from Heathrow to AMS with a 1 hour 20 minute wait for connecting KLM flight to Hong Kong. Is this plenty of time to make connection and will there be any security checks in AMS. Thanks
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am a US citizen, flying from Berlin (TXL) to AMS on KLM/DL, arriving at 10:35am, connecting with DL flight from AMS to ATL departing at 12:55pm. Will I need to go thru passport entry or collect my bags (hope they are just checked straight thru TXL to ATL), or will I just be able to go directly from my arrival gate to my departure gate? are there restaurants/shops in the area if I just stay between the gates?
You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control, then US Security questions, and then to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
We will arrive Dec 16 from ATL (flight DL72) at 8:15 AM and need to make flight DL 9317 at 9:35 AM to BSL. Will this be a problem. We are US citizens. DL 72 is Delta and Flight 9317 is operated by KLM. Will we need to pick up our checked luggage in AMS or will it be transferred to the flight to BSL?
You don't have to do anything with your bags. Just go through Schengen Entry Passport Control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
I have a KLM flight from Berlin that arrives in Amsterdam at 7:15 am. I connect with a United/Lufthansa flight leaving Amsterdam at 11 am through Frankfurt to Newark, USA. Will I have enough time to make the Amsterdam connection? Will I have to recheck my bags in Amsterdam when I change airlines from KLM to United/Lufthansa?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to claim and re-check your bags in Amsterdam.
I am USA citizen considering a flight which is scheduled to arrive AMS from JFK at 10:40am and my connection flight to Minsk is at 12:00pm, 1hr 20m connection time. The flights are on the same ticket, KLM to Belavia Airline. I do have 1 check bagged.
Will 1hr 20m be enough? Will I have to go through passport control? security screen?
That should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
