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.

Yes. The airline is putting a "fast track" sticker on your BP. For AF/KL, eligible FB pax flying Y have access to it.

No sticker is required. I generally use a mobile BP and just scan my phone at the entry point to let me into the business class lane. This is true not only at DUS, but many other airports including ORY and CDG T1.

You are obviously correct. I was just pointing out that if you make a regular check-in at the airport, they put a sticker on your BP.

Is there any immigration/security fast lane:

Inbound: not applicable for flights coming from France

Outbound: yes

Other comments (for example, is a specific fast lane document required, to be asked at check-in, etc) :

The priority lane at passport control is reserved for regional flights, crews and "passagers salon" (pax with lounge access). The rule is little enforced though.

There is not SkyPriority signage, but a "Premium passengers" sign indicating fast lane.

SkyPriority members are accepted in the fast lane (no separate security check after waiting line)

Update on LYS. They have recently added a Fast Track lane at T2, but there are not yet any Skypriority signs, nor did my Economy BP (FB Plat) work when I scanned it. But my Privilys of course worked.

I am guessing this new gate at security must be either for Skypriority in the future, or perhaps it is only for EK premium passengers. I don't mind a few EK pax, but it would be kind of bad news for us Privilys members if any ST elites could access our line!

No SkyPriority signage at security but the agent knows what SkyPriority is and will let you use the dedicated and separated security check.

Shanghai PVG

Is there any immigration/security fast lane:

- Immigration : no (neither inbound nor outbound)
- Security : yes. But it's not labelled "SkyPriority" as we could expect in a Skyteam hub. It is written "First class" but J class / SkyP are allowed.

New York - JFK

Terminal 4

Is there any immigration/security fast lane:

Outbound: yes
All the way to the right of security is the business/first/PreCheck lane. SkyPriority lets you in too. It's a shortcut to the regular lane so you do end up with the 'normal' public if you don't have PreCheck.
If you go via the Delta SkyPriority check-in area, the priority lane is the first one on the right.

MAD & BIO

All the terminals at MAD seem to have a fast track security, which can be accessed with a STE+ BP, assuming a ST flight leaving from that terminal of course. And if flying UX, there is of course Sky Priority at check in. Which is really, really valuable because most all the people flying UX are not elite. There was a huge line at 6:45am to check in, but no one standing at the business class Sky Priority line.

BIO however, has no fast track of any kind.

This is not unique to JFK. Unfortunately it was the same in all US airports I visited (IIRC).
