    • 5 hrs enough to exit AMS for tour?

      by Midtownmommy Online Now Mar 17, 2014 at 6:22 AM

      We have a 5 hr layover in AMS, traveling on KLM/Delta on March 18th, 2014. I'll try to ensure my bags are checked through so we don't have to collect our checked bags. I've red that 4 hours is the minimum to safely exit AMS to see the city for an hour, and that you really need 6 hrs. Is 5 hrs to risky? We are Americans, DEL-AMS-DTW

    • SG-AMS-Cork via KLM and then Aer Lingus, Visa needed?

      by rayrafael18 Online Now Jan 26, 2014 at 6:13 PM

      Hi, I'm a Filipino working for an Irish based company and I'll be traveling from Singapore to Amsterdam and then have my connecting flight there to Cork. I fly KLM from SG-AMS and have 2hrs interval before my flight to AMS-Cork via Aer Lingus. If I have checked-in baggage do I need to pass immigration to collect it and re check-in again? I have my schengen visa valid 3 days after when I return to AMS from Cork because they said I don't need any visa to transit. But I'm flying to different airlines and I'm not sure if they have codeshare flights. Help please?

      by Boohawk13 Online Now Jan 17, 2014 at 3:34 PM

      I am flying from SEA through AMS to LHR on Delta. I have always had hand luggage but this time will need to check. Does checked luggage have to be claimed in AMS and go through security or does it just go on to LHR.

      We arrive at 1AM from Lisbon at Schiphol and will have a 10AM flight on Delta back to US. Would we be able to stay at the departure terminal, or once we clear passport control will we be stuck in the baggage claim/exit area? We are trying to see if we should get a hotel, or if there are more comfortable places to stay at the airport. What is the security procedures for arriving?

      I am flying from the US to Amsterdam and then to Nairobi, Kenya. I have a Kenyan passport. At Amsterdam, I will have to switch from Delta to Kenyan Airways. My first question is whether I will have to recheck my luggage? If so, will I have to leave the international transit and pass through customs again? If so, do I have to get a Schengen visa just to get back on the plane?

    • Checked luggage during transit - please help

      by Shantiprema106 Online Now Jun 29, 2013 at 4:56 PM

      helping traveling from India to USA via Amsterdam Schiphol. She is 75 so have booked her a yotel stay in ams international terminal to stay overnight so she can get some rest before proceeding to USA. She will be at the airport for 27 hrs. What I didn't think of when I booked her ticket was the checked bags. Typically you can check your bags directly from India directly to the states and do not have to collect at the transit location. But we have never been in transit for that long. Wondering
      1. If delta will let her check her bag directly to USA or would she have to collect her bags in Ams
      2. If Schiphol has any rules abthaving to retrieve your checked bags if you are in transit for greater than 24 hrs
      3. If she has to collect her bags will she have to leave the international terminal. The problem is that she has an Indian passport and no schengen visa to leave the international terminal

      Any guidance will be much appreciated. Thanks!
