How long to transfer at Copenhagen or Schiphol?

We are loooking to fly from Birmingham to Stockholm. There are cheap -ish rates available for flights via Copenghagen with SAS, and via Amsterdam with KLM.

The cheapest rates available have extremely short transfer times - approx 50 minutes - is this too short? Is that why it's cheap? Would it only be feasable with hand luggage?

If both flights are with the same airline ie KLM then they should only give you flights which will connect OK. Anyway, it becomes their responsibility if it doesn't. In the same scenario they will/should check your luggage through from Birmingham to Stockholm.

50 minutes to transfer at Schiphol will be enough provided your flight lands on time. Schiphol is quite big but well laid out & easy to find your way around. Shame you haven't got longer as the duty free is a good place to browse, even if it's not as cheap as it used to be.............

KLM will transfer your luggage to your next flight but be warned, with the amount of luggage they handle (Schiphol is a major European hub) things do get lost / mislaid from time to time...............
