Schipol Amsterdam transfers.

Jump to last reply

I am flying from Manchester to Buenos Aires ( EZE) in November on KLM. I booked on the KLM website.
The transfer time in AMS is 1h10 mins. I am uneasy about this . Sometimes KLM flights land in Schipol from MAN on a very distant runway and take a long time to taxi to the gate.I have also been booked on a KLM flight from MAN to AMS in the past which was cancelled ( in Winter) because of the weather. That is even before we have a bus transfer to the terminal. We are restricting our luggage to carry on .
I've been on the website and have been told that if I miss my connection ( on a through ticket) they will rebook me on the next flight. They can't tell me the routing and every other flight which was on offer when I booked takes about double the time.
I am nervous about this as we are due to meet my (adult) daughter in B.A. who is travelling alone from LHR. We are booked in an apartment in San Telmo.
She is not bothered - and by dint of some searching , found her direct B.A. flight for £200 less than ours after we booked! Whilst we wish we'd waited- there we are!
I also cannot tell whether we have to do passport control in Schipol as the video on transfer says that if you arrive from outside Schengen ( except the UK) and fly to a non- Schengen country you do not have to go through passport control. However it doesn't say what happens if you arrive from the U.K. in these circumstances.
Can anyone help please?
