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 suggest we create a wiki at the beginning of the post. I could volunteer to compile the info already posted.

Security : there is a SP lane at the F gates check-point (just in front of AF check-in counters in the French sector), but the lane closed (and according to regular flyers there, it is always the case)

I have used it on GVA-CDG a number of times. Not for the last 6 months though.

Skypriority at check in. But the elite security line had no signage for SkyTeam. It also had no one checking BP's so I just walked in.

LBA

AIRPORT: LBA (Leeds/Bradford International)

Inbound: No

Outbound: Yes: Elite, Elite+ and J passengers will be directed to use the fast lane by the check-in staff. The lane "police" seem happy to let you in if your boarding card shows ELITE. The fast lane is the one on the right as you enter the security queue. It does not have a SkyPriority sign. It is much faster than the slow lane, which is largely occupied by orange FR passengers. Priority boarding is not available at this airport.

WAW

AIRPORT: WAW (Warsaw Chopin)

Is there any immigration/security fast lane:

Inbound: Unknown (not relevant for Schengen arrivals)

Outbound: Yes: Elite, Elite+ and J passengers will be directed to use the business class lane by the check-in staff. It is on the far right-hand side. It does not have a SkyPriority sign, and is signed only "Business class passengers". You should bring your elite card because the staff do not always understand the boarding passes.

Madrid - MAD

Is there any immigration/security fast lane:

Outbound:
Follow Vip/Fast track sign (no so easy to find, as it is not into the same direction to Terminal 2 in the last meters).

There is a (small) SkyPriority sign close to the elevator (before BP check). Elite members can use the fast lane.
