    Arriving FRA from LHR by LH907 at 16:05 and have connect flight LH1136 to BCN at 17:30 in early Sept, do you think it is doable with an old people? Should we need any luggage/security/passport check? ( FYI: We are taking fight from Canada to BCN via LHR and FRA.) Another question is which terminals are we arriving and leaving.? Regards

     

    Both flights will be in the same terminal. You will go through Schengen Passport control on your way from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Just follow signs to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you for your help

    I made a mistake looking at my itinerary. I actually have 2 hours and 15 minutes layover in Frankfurt. Will that be enough time? And how do I ensure my luggage will transfer from Lufthansa to Aegean? Also, the 45 minute layover is in Thessaloniki Greece going to Santorini. Is that enough time? I know that is a smaller airport. Thank you so very much.

     

    2 hrs 15 mins should be plenty of time. If you purchased your tickets together the bags will be tagged through to Santorini. Both Lufthansa and Aegean are in Star Alliance.

    I am coming from the US and traveling to Thessaloniki Greece with a layover in Frankfurt. My layover time is 45 minutes. I understand Frankfurt is a huge airport and I want to make sure that is enough time. Also, will my luggage be transferred or would I need to get my luggage and check in again?? Any advice or tips would be much appreciated.

     

    You will not have to claim your luggage but that is a very tough connection since you will go through Schengen Immigration and security on your way to your departure gate.

    You barely have enough time fo ryour connection. Yes, you need to go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, re-check your bags with United, then take the ATS Train from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1 and go through security and to your departure gate. Just bringing a carry-on will save you a little time.

     

    Oooo wow. Thank you so much for you reply! I really appreciate it. It really has helped. I guess I should just bring a carry on... :(

    I am travelling from San Francisco (USA) to Barcelona (Spain) having a layover at Frankfurt Airport (FRA). I am arriving at Frankfurt via United UA926 with layover of 1hr15min to catch Lufthanan LH1132. Would 1hr 15min be too rush in this case? Thanks in advance for any advise
