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.

Really ????
This has changed because before SkyPriority, I had access to the fast track lane flying DL in Y. This was in 2006 or 2007.

To answer my own question: DXB has Fast track for Business passengers on arrival. On departure, even though there is a lane marked as "Business Class/Priority", I was told by the AF supervisor that it was not enforced. Sure enough, the airport staff was directing all passengers to all lines, including that one.

Actually, if you are a frequent flyer, you can register at the airport (?) and use the employee access, but it has nothing to do with SkyPriority.
At terminal 2, It is between the counter and the regular lane (slide door)

Yes all this is already mentioned above in this thread for LYS. We have to be a bit careful to not repeat ourselves here.

Just picked up this thread now.

Regarding Istanbul: when I arrived there on LX I got a fast lane voucher on board the plane and went straight to the fast lane immigration. Same on LH. And IIRC also on TK. So maybe it's just a case of AF not handing out fast lane vouchers.

Regarding USA and arrivals in P as well as HON on LH: I am not sure if AF First Class can cut the lines with the personal assistant at LAX. It works at JFK for sure. As for HONs, it is not only LH but also LX and OS. But not for their FIrst Class passengers. However, that service does not work in LAX.

Other than that, off the top of my head, where fast lane exists at departure for SkyPriority:

Zurich
Dusseldorf
Dublin (only for business class pax, not elite pax in Eco or PE)
Most US airports for domestic departures on DL
Doha
Mexico
Glasgow (?)
Edinburgh (?)

Where it does not exist (again, off the top of my head and things may have changed since):

Geneva
Barcelona
Munich
Frankfurt
Hamburg
Beirut
Madrid (?)
Riyadh
Jeddah
Dubai
La Rochelle
Biarritz
Nuremberg
Verona
Florence
Stuttgart (?)
London LCY

TLS - Toulouse

Outbound:
YES

On terminal D only. Before security check, right next to the passenger boarding pass check, which is performed manually by airport personnel, there is an automated door dedicated to SkyPriority and BA premium passengers (same type of bar code scanner as Accs n1 in Orly).
