Making connections in Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

So I have to make a connection in Amsterdam and I have an hour and 30 minutes. I figure the plane boards about 30 minutes beforehand so that leaves me with an hour of time to make it through the airport. I've read that I have to go through some sort of centralized security/passport control, and I want to know if this is enough time to make my connection and how this all works. I'm getting off a United flight from Chicago and getting on a Scandinavian Airlines flight to Stockholm. I know they separate the airport by Schengen and non-Schengen countries that's going from a non-Schengen to a Schengen country but I also read on some Dutch website that the US is considered "clean" and doesn't require the same level of security. So what do I have to do in Amsterdam to make my flight, and do I have enough time to do it? I'm only familiar with the Vancouver, Seattle, and Boise airports so all of this is really nerve-wracking and new to me.
