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 do confirm this . Even flying P on AF : no fast track arriving in EZE.
But when I went to EZE, it was just before AR joined Skyteam, so your post indicates that, even with AR in Sky, no fast track on arrival.

Is there a fast track lane at NCE T2 for security ? I was there today but had only carry-on and was already checked-in, so I went straight to security, in the middle of the AF hall, but there was no SkyPriority lane. So I was wondering if there was one ?

There is none at LYS so I guess if AF doesn't have an international flight from these airports they aren't required to have SkyPriority.

So if AF does not have an international flight from an airport, they won't have Skypriority at security (as opposed to immigration)? I was unaware that was their requirement, as it's not Delta's in the U.S.

No FastTrack Skypriority at T2 NCE, only a "Club Airport Premier" where you have to register whatever your airline and register 10 flights/year to keep the membership or something like that.

Not sure that is the rule, but it could be in France. btw there is a (daily ?) NCE-JFK with Delta.

I should have said Intercontinental as AF/KL certainly has international flights from LYS. But I think the real reason is that AF/KL has a relatively small presence at LYS and there are several terminals and checkpoints. There are Skypriority check in signs, but no help at security.

Regular LYS flyers can purchase VIP access which allows you to use the employee entrance to security and has other benefits. It's can be a big help.

There is a daily DL NCE-JFK flight, but in recent years it has been seasonal.
