I am scheduled to arrive at AMS at 10:35am on 11 September (on a flight from TXL) and am trying to make my other flight at 1:20pm back home to the US. Both flights are with KLM, but they are separate reservations. Meaning, I would have to go through customs, and claim my baggage and re-check it before my flight to the US, I assume.

Is this connection time too tight? Can/should I try to link the flight reservations on KLM so that I do not have to claim & re-check my bags for the 2nd flight?
That should be enough time. Yes, you should still try to link the reservations to make it easier. Also, there is no Customs when traveling from Berlin to Amsterdam.
thanks for the info and the quick response!! I will try to link the reservations. Much appreciated.
I have a flight from Newcastle UK with 50 minute transfer to my next flight to New Delhi. Both flights are with KLM booked on the same reservation. Is 50 minutes enough time for the transfer? Can I just go from gate to gate or do I have to go through passport control?
You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the Newcastle flight is on-time.
Thank you for the speedy response, first time doing connecting flights, fingers crossed our Newcastle flight is on time.
I'm scheduled to arrive on 01/30/18 AMS on KLM 569 DAR to AMS at 07:10 (concorse F). On a different ticket, I depart on United 71 AMS to EWR(Newark) at 09:15 (concorse G). If I only have carry-on, do you think I'll make this connection ?What security and customs stations should I head for? Thank you!
With no checked bags I think you can do it. Just follow signs to your departure gate. You won't have to go through any immigration or customs, just security.
We have a flight landing from tel Aviv to Amsterdam, then a 1.15hr connection layover in Amsterdam. Is this enough time to get our connection to LAX? All our flights are klm.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Travelling from Newcastle to Schiphol then a connecting flight to Johannesburg. Will we need to travel to a different gate. Have just under 2 hours to change.
That should be plenty of time.
Hi, I am coming by flight KL 0872 from India to Amsterdam that lands in terminal 3 and my connecting flight is KL 3393 from terminal 1 to Madrid. Will I need to go through immigration of my Schengen visa at Amsterdam or will that happen when I land in Madrid ?
You're misreading your reservation, Amsterdam has only one terminal. You will go through Schengen Entry passport Control in Amsterdam.
My wife and I are arriving on Delta Airline from the US. Then we transfer to a local flight (KLM Cityhopper) for Dresden, Germany. Do we need to get our luggage before customs and recheck them to the local airline or are they checked through and we need not have to handle them? Thank you for any help.
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam, just go through Schengen Entry passport control.
I am flying in from Bristol UK landing at 11.35 and getting a flight to Atlanta US at 13.00. I am worried about the transfer time and extra security as I'm on a Delta flight to the US. Will I have enough time to transfer and what kind of security will I go through? Thank you.
Edited to say we have booked a through ticket all with KLM (although using Delta flights). I am slightly concerned as I am travelling with a 6 year old too who does sometimes slow me down!
Hello Hannah!
I shall be taking this same route. I am hoping you can share some feedback if you have already flown.

In December 2017 I will fly from San Jose ( Costa Rica ) to Schiphol being transit to Oslo. Booked on KLM website and all flights are with KLM. Once arriving at Schiphol, do I need to pass by Security and Passport check ? cheers
We are travelling from Toronto to Amsterdam in September. Arriving in Amsterdam at 6:30am. We have to catch a connecting flight to Manchester England leaving at 7:55am. This trip was booked on one ticket and both flights are KLM flights. Will we need to do a passport check and security check in Amsterdam? Is an hour and twenty minutes enough time to make our flight to Manchester?
