A list of airports serving SkyTeam, and whether they have an immigration fast lane on the inbound (if relevant), or a security fast lane on the outbound, and who can gain access.

When travelling entirely within the Schengen zone, there are no immigration controls so the "inbound" column is not relevant.

American airports with SkyPriority are documented by Delta so are not presently included in this list.

If anything more than a valid boarding pass or FF card is needed to gain access to the lane, it will be noted.

Please amend and correct the list according to your experiences.

Sometimes there is a fast lane no? At least for the non-Schengen departures.

Yes I thought there was for Openskies. I'll find out in a couple weeks. Looking forward to trying out the new lounge too.

OK thanks. That's probably why I never really noticed it. I will edit my post and the wiki.

MAD - Madrid Barajas T2

I confirm the info from the wiki : no fast lane at security in T2 for J/Elite pax.
To be precise, there is in fact a fast lane but reserved only for families with babies and young children

Are you absolutely sure? I did use it last time when I was booked on Air France (in July 2015, with a companion). You need to follow the VIP signage and the private security is located at the left of the terminal in a middle of deserted check-in counters. A dragon verified eligibility at a desaffected CI counter actually.
The security is nice with small armchairs to wait if necessary.

Yes, it's exactly as described by olivedel. I had access as Elite+ flying in Economy on KLM a couple of weeks ago.

Yes I experienced this recently. It didn't make much of a difference as the immigration queue was short but the security was a bit long.

However I had an issue with CDG Access 1 arriving at T2A. I flashed my BA Gold card to enter Access 1 immigration, but the guy there said that elite status doesn't count and I have to be traveling in business class. I argued with him a bit and he eventually let me in saying sarcastically "well I guess you know more than I do about my job". He was right.

Ah ? As I was OLCIed and had only carry-on, I just followed the normal path and arrived at the regular lane (downstairs) where there is in fact a special lane with an unpleasant dragon who told me NO. So you should update the wiki

When I was flying out of TLV last year with KLM just mentioning SkyPriority to the lady at the entrance allowed me to go to the fast lane...

I can confirm as well. Flew yesterday, followed the VIP / fast track signs and there was not a soul at the security staffed by three persons. It was bliss (including leather couches before and after, probably for shoes on/off), with a very nice atmosphere.
