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.

Crowd-sourcing of info is at the heart of what wikis are. That said, wiki's were only introduced relatively recently to FT so I suspect that you are in the overwhelming majority (including me until relatively recently) in not having realised that they could be changed by all users.

SGN - Saigon (Ho-Chi Minh City)

Is there any immigration/security fast lane:

Inbound: No

Outbound: No

After ICN, this is the 2nd Skyteam hub I visit in a few months that do not have fast track lanes. And for outbound, it would have been much appreciated, as despite the early morning time, the airport was crowded and lines very long and very slow…

Also, interestingly, the lounge invitation has a stamp saying "valid for 3 hrs". First time I see this and is hardly acceptable. What if you have a long connection or if your flight is delayed…are they really kicking you out of the lounge ?

The 3 hrs thing is more than ridiculous.
However, somewhat hard to believe lounge staff will keep the time for all visitors and kick them out when time has elapsed
