Airport Transit Question__Different airlines.

Post by sateeb » Tue Apr 25, 2017 12:46 pm

Hi All,

I've got a flight booked with Emirates BKK to Amsterdam then KLM to the UK 4 hours later without checked baggage!!

Will I be able to transit or do I have to go through Immigration and re-check in for the UK sector?
Hopefully I will have already checked in on line.

Cheers.

I believe you may have to go through immigration and re-check-in,,,,,,,,,,,,,,however,there are many many transit desks at Schipol when you arrive.Suggest you visit one of them before exiting,generally they are extremely helpful and i am sure they will point you in the right direction.

I am pretty sure you can stay airside. If you cannot get a boarding pass for the onward flight when you check in then you should be able to either get one at the transfer desk in Schipol or do it online.

Thanks guys,
As I said, I'll be able to online check in for the UK sector and head for the KLM transfer desk on arrival.

In January I travelled from Edinburgh to Amsterdam with KLM and then Amsterdam to Bangkok with Eva Air. I also had no checked baggage. I checked in online for both flights and printed out my boarding cards for both flights. No need to go through immigration and re check in.
