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.

Thatís a new one! Never had an issue before, even when there was none and I asked them to open it for me (in Y as well)
Do you think it was just an ill-advised agent?

It could be, I had this feeling. It was a very young guy obviously very happy of his authority to turn away some people.

I've updated the wiki for VLC. Have used outbound Fast Track security 3 times now with Y ticket. So the description (only families etc) was no longer being enforced.

There's an edit button, I guess you need a certain post count.

I'll update ALC for you

Cork (ORK), Ireland is a No/No anyway, although as an airport it is too small for it to EVER be an issue.

10 minutes is the longest security time I've ever encountered, and all passengers have to pass through immigration. Two desks are all that are usually required and even if three or four flights land around the same time (almost unheard of) it is a short enough queue.

AF replied after the incident that it was a mistake from an obviously poorly trained agent.

In the Wiki it says "All elites" for VIE. Does that also include SkyPriority?

How do you get to use the immigration fasttrack in YVR international departure? Last I've heard is you need a sticker on your boarding pass which I never got in the past 4 years or so.
