SEA to Gran Canaria on Separate Tickets

Jump to last reply

I have enough SkyMiles milage to get SEA to AMS leg on Delta for free. From AMS to LPA, I'm planning on using Iberia Express. The challenge as always on international connections on separate tickets is the timing. Itinerary I'm looking at now looks like this:

Delta/KLM SEA 13:30 --> AMS 08:30 (+1)
Iberia AMS 12:10 --> MAD 14:50
Iberia MAD 15:50 --> LPA 16:50

Iberia LPA 15:05 --> MAD 18:50
Iberia MAD 19:50 --> AMS 22:25
Delta/KLM AMS 10:00 (+1) --> SEA 11:23

There are 2 sketchy connections that I am not 100% confident about. First is the transfer at AMS on the way out. With under 4 hours between the flights, I don't know how stressful it would be to go through the immigration and reentering to make this connection work.

But the biggest question I have is the connection in MAD. Flights between AMS and LPA will be on a single ticket on Iberia, but I would presume I have to go through immigration in MAD and not LPA since MAD is the port of entry/departure in Spain for me? Is it possible to get through immigration and make the connection in 1 hour even if it's on a single ticket?? Never traveled from one EU country to a connecting airport in another EU country, so I don't know how this works. Any feedback is appreciated!
