50 Minutes Enough In AMS?

Tue Feb 03, 2004 9:59 am

In two weeks I'm flying KLM from BRU to AMM with a stop in AMS of only 50 minutes, is that enough ? I've had bad experiences with these things. Thanks.

That is cutting it short, but is doable. Depends on where AMM is, I don't recognize the city code. If it's a small plane to a big plane or vice versa, it might be a hike, or even worse if the BRU-AMS part is operated by KLC. Your bags will be tagged SHOCON, and hopefully, read hopefully, you'll get them in AMM.

AMS is a fairly large airport, but not so bad you can't get from one point to another in 20 minutes. It always seems longer when you are walking it, though  Smile

AMM = Amman capital of Jordan, they fly a B737 there.

In that case I doubt it'll be much of a trek at all, since BRU-AMS is most likely operated by a 737, and since AMM is as well, they'll probably be in the same terminal. Plenty of time to enjoy a Heineken  Smile

AMS is a nice airports. In 50 mins, one can go from B to G at least 2 times...

Normally, it takes me about 15-18 mins to go from one of them B70s gates to let say E19. But, I walk fast Big grin
