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.

I am pleased to report that Sky Priority has now been implemented for security screening at MRS (Hall 4) and MPL .
For MRS, it is the same fast track lane which was before accessible only via a subscription but apparently AF didn't want to pay for it. But now, there is a well visible Sky P signage.
For MPL, this is in link with the Navette service due to begin next fall. But the SkyP lane at security is already operational.
Wiki has been updated.

Have just edited Wiki to add information for HAM and NWI.

HAM is nice and easy and straightforward - access to Fast Track is by way of a boarding pass scanner which recognises the bar code on Sky Priority boarding passes.

NWI is... bizarre!!! They have only recently introduced a Fast Track system. Totally unnecessary IMHO (it's the sort of airport where you think "gosh isn't it busy today? " if you have more than three or four people in front of you), and if you want to use Fast Track as a KLM frequent flyer you have to queue up at the airport information desk first (where you could have a very long wait as they deal with everything from general enquiries to rebooking pax after flight cancellations)

NWI charges an airport development fee (one of two airports in the UK to do so), and you have to scan your airport development fee ticket to get airside. They have decided to bundle together their airport development fee with Fast Track by selling special enhanced (= more expensive) ADF tickets which include Fast Track. KLM Elite flyers can get these enhanced tickets for the normal price by presenting their FB cards at the information desk - which, in most cases, will take longer than joining the queue of three or four in the non-Fast Track lane.

So - if you're travelling from NWI just forget about Fast Track and use the normal lane.

BLL | no | yes
TLS | no | yes | all terminals, SkyPriority boarding pass is enough, automatic gates
LHR Term 3 | yes | yes | inbound I was once given the same card as Delta One passengers to access priority lane at immigration, outbound yes if traveling on Delta metal SkyPriority is honoured

GVA | no | yes | With the Skypriority barcode, you can access the automated gates for the priority lane. No stickers necessary anymore.

Thanks for resurrecting the thread - I've added FCO and made a couple of amendments, too.

The priority lane at TXL security no longer exists. It stopped over a year ago. I updated the Wiki.
