On 26 June, we will arrive at AMS from IAD on United 946, scheduled to arrive at 7:15. We have booked KLM 1185, scheduled to depart at 8:25. We will have no checked baggage. Can we learn the concourses and gates? Is this a do-able connection?
You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. You have a chance if you check in for your KLM flight online before you leave the US.
We will be doing that. We also run well! Thank you.
I will be arriving in AMS via Jet airways at 7:55 AM from YYZ with 1 checked bag. My connection flight to GOT leaves at 9:50 AM with KLM. Both flights were booked with one ticket. Is this going to be enough time to make the connection? and also would I have to go through security? Also would I have to claim my luggage at AMS and re check it in at KLM?
Yes, that should be enough time. You will not have to go through security. Just Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
One ticket through delta (but short hop is operated by KLM) with only one hour - will this work?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Elderly travelers how far is it to walk from arrival to departure gates, bags through checked, do we have to go through passport control? Thank you.
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry Passport Control in Amsterdam. Walks in Amsterdam are generally short.
I am arriving from BUD on KLM at 8.15 am my flight AA to DFW lives at 10.15-do I have sufficient
time to make a connection?Depart August 30.
With no checked bags that's possible but it will be really difficult if you have checked bags to transfer.
my wife returning to us /green card/permanent resident/flying from Moscow to Amsterdam to minneaplois/.one booking what does she need to do in Amsterdam ?has 4 hour layover// thank you
All she has to do in Amsterdam is go through security, then go to the indicated gate where there will be some US Security questions and then she will go to the actual gate that they tell her. She has plenty of time.
Traveling from U.S. changing planes in Amsterdam to Edinburgh. Entire flight booked through Delta. Delta told me I need to claim my bags in AMS, go through customs, & a KLM representative would be on the other side to check my bag to EDI. I asked about Non schengen/scone gen, and the rep said he never heard of it. Help! What do I REALLY do?
You do not have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Delta rep really has no clue what she's talking about.
Thank you.
Hello, I arrive in AMS at 8am on British airways and have a connection flight at 10:15 am on KLM. These tickets were booked seperate so I'm concerned if I will have enough time with checked bags to get to my flight. Any help would be great. Thanks
You will have to go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with KLM, go through security and possibly Schengen Exit passport control (depending on where you're flying with KLM). That is a difficult connection.
I am flying into AMS from dallas and my return flight arrives at AMS from Prague. Both connections have the same amount of time between flights 2hr20min. Think it can be done ?
Yes, that is enough time.
will I have to go through passport control and security at Schiphol?
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area no you do not.
We have been told by Air Canada that one hour is more than enough time from arrival to departure. Looking at the map it seems the concourses may be far apart. We are arriving with Air Canada at 10:15 and departing with Croatia at 11;20. Is this connection possible? Thank you so much.
Yes, it should be possible. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate since you are not entering the Schengen Area.
