  • Athens to Us

    I'll be flying on Aegean from Athens with a airline flight change in FRA, it is showing 1 hour layover....doable? I have one itinerary #, and both Aegean and Delta have separate confirmation numbers.


    You'll have to go through Schengen exit passport control and change terminals. That is a very difficult connection.


  • transit - non schengen to non schengen

    Hi, I am flying into Frankfurt from Toronto on Air Canada, and then catching a connecting flight to Tel Aviv on LuftHansa. Will I need to go through immigration or security again? Will I need to pick up my bags and re-check them? I have never taken a connecting flight before, so I am just wondering about the procedure, and where to go. Thank you,


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There may be special Israeli security at the gate, but that's it.

    Hi, I am arriving on Frankfrt airport on 2 july from mumbai to Frankfurt at 8.00 and than I have connecting flight DE2164 for MontegoBay at 11.30.Is this enough time and what are the formailties I will have to do between arrival and again departing for Montego Bay.


    Do you have checked bags? Are your tickets on the same reservation? If you are an Indian citizen you will need a Schengen Airport Transit visa if both tickets are on the same reservation and if you have two separate reservations and checked bags, you will need a full Schengen transit visa issued by Germany.

    Arriving on 4th Sep. from Ullaanbaatar, Mongolia on MIAT Mongolian airlines, don't know which terminal. For passport control , is there EU and Non EU passport controls? Or all passengers have to go through one passport control since the flight originates from non EU country. I'm an EU passport holder.


    There is an EU line. You will arrive in Terminal 2

    I am traveling from Denver to Nice with a quick layover in Frankfurt. Both flights are booked on one reservation on Lufthansa. My layover in Frankfurt is only 55 min. Will I have enough time to catch my last flight to Nice?


    This will be a difficult connection. It's not impossible but everything will have to go perfectly.

    We will be arriving from the US and going onto Prague via Luthansa. We have 85 minutes to get to and board our flight to Prague. Is that enough time to make our flight.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate.
