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.

If someone can add to the wiki (not enough posts for me):
NBO : no fast track for immigration on arrival. Yes for fast track at both security (entering the terminal & before access to boarding area) & immigration on departure

It's easy to miss when there are long queues hiding the sign, also not sure how it works for those who need VoA, please let us know after Monday if the wiki needs to be updated

Happy to confirm there is indeed a SP lane at the very left of the immigration desk! Can't believe I missed it for so long (literally been there two dozen time past 6 months) - apologies for ealier

I haven't used Air France-KLM that much, so apologies if anyone has already posted regarding this.....
We're flying KLM business from BHX to KUL (via AMS) in a few weeks time. I've read that the queues at immigration in KUL can be anything from 5 minutes to 2 hours. Does KLM business class provide access to the fast track immigration lanes (and are they any better than the ohers)?

It's been a while, I think in KUL you will have fast lane immigration. In AMS not, but you don't need it in transit from BHX to KUL.

Couldn't find it in the wiki : is there a SP/STE+ access @JFK when departing on Delta TATL ? What about when arriving at JFK with AF ?

yes departing on DL. No on arrival (priority lane on arrival for J or Elite pax doesnt exist in the US, whatever the airport and the airline, with the exception when you fly P on AF or when you benefit from the super VIP service like the Porsche service by DL). However, what you have arriving on AF in JFK T1, is a priority voucher if you have a short connection (I forgot what they consider as short but it could be < 90 min). They make an announcement on-board after landing and the voucher is given when you arrive in the immigration hall upon presentation of a proof of your short connection.

Hey Everyone,

With the new Flying Blue program do FB elites have better pricing, or more award inventory, or are awards the same for all FB members regardless of status level? I do understand that you have to be an elite to book F awards, but my question is really in reference to business awards. Thanks!

you obviously posted in the wrong thread.
Inventory and prices are the same. Pricing is dynamic and all seats are available for award redemption.

Oops - excuse me for being in the wrong tread, but thank you for answering the question. If it makes sense please move my post to appropriate location.
