I have a 7 hour stopover and would like to explore the city. Arriving from Canada (US passport). Am I required to retrieve my luggage or will it transfer automatically even if I leave the airport?
It will transfer automatically if it is tagged to your final destination. So yes, you can leave the airport.
I am traveling from Newark to Frankfurt with a 3 hour layover on yo Florence on Nov 4
Will I have to go through passport control ? Any tips on "killing time "?
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Frankfurt. You shouldn't have too much time to kill.
Thanks for the info!!!!
I'm flying in on Concord airlines and flying out with Lufthansa
Hi,

I have booked a flight with LH, Baku- Frankfurt- Madrid for next week. However, my concern is 1 hour layover time in Frankfurt between flights.

Please advise if 1 hour layover time is OK for the mentioned flight.

Looking forward to your kind assistance.

Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? What airline are you flying to Frankfurt?
Hi there,

I am checking flights Baku- Madrid and I came across with a few flights through Frankfurt with 1 hour layover (Lufthansa) . I am a bit concerned if they can make it to the next flight, as the layover isn't too short.

Please confirm if 1 hour layover in Frankfurt is OK?

Thanks
Flying from Milan to LosAngeles with 55 min. Layover in Frankfurt. American citizen on 1 ticket flying Lufthansa. Should I be concerned about security lines or terminal changes?
Hi we have a layover of 1hr in FRA while coming from BLR(Benguluru) to IAH(Houston). Will that be enough? Both flights Lufthansa.
and If one of us have wheel chair request, will they bring wheel chair for layover transit and take us through security clearance ?
Yes, that is just enough time. Yes, the wheelchair will bring you the whole way.
I am arriving from Bangalore to FRA and have a connecting flight to IAH, Houston with 1 hr connection time. Will that be sufficient?
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
