Hi there, all,
I'm a British citizen flying from Edinburgh to Amsterdam, with a 5-hour wait before proceeding to Bangkok. My flight to Amsterdam is with KLM, and my flight to Bangkok is with China Airlines. I am flying non-shenghen to non-shengen. My question is, as I am an EU citizen (where no Visa is required for the Amsterdam stay), do I have to remain in the transit area of Schiphol, or am I free to roam around the entire airport? Will this depend on whether my luggage is checked through by the airlines or not?
Or, could I conceivably get my luggage at Amsterdam and then go through the customs procedures again prior to boarding the Bangkok flight?
I just don't want to be in a position of somehow being in flux because I've gone through the wrong process at the airport.
Thanks in advance for any replies you may post, really much appreciated.
