Important: Check-in during May break

Between 26 April and 30 April, more passengers than usual depart from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. This will result in long queues at the check-in desks, passport control and security checks, especially from Fridays to Mondays.

Urgent advice

Make sure you are at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at least three hours before departure.

Are you travelling to the United States? Make sure you have applied for ESTA travel approval. This is mandatory for all travellers from Visa Waiver Programme countries, such as the Netherlands.

Read more about ESTA.


Save time

To avoid long queues, you can check in online at KLM.com, from 30 hours prior to departure (24 for travel to the United States) and print out your boarding pass at home. Or check in with your mobile phone and opt for an e-boarding pass.

Next, drop any check-in luggage you might have at one of the baggage drop-off points at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Do you want to bring more baggage on top of the free baggage allowance? During online check-in at KLM.com you can easily arrange this – and at a 20% discount on the excess baggage fee.

We wish you a great journey!
