Yes as long as your passport allows you to enter Germany, you can leave the airport and come back the next day.
I am traveling from Atlanta to Cairo with an 8 hour layover in Frankfurt - all connections are on one reservation. My luggage will be checked and I'll have a small personal bag. Will there be enough time for me to explore the city for a few hours?
No, not really.
I fly from Bangalore to Atlanta via Frankfurt. The layover at Frankfurt is 1 hour 25 mins. Both the flights are Lufthansa.
a) Is this enough for the transit ?
b) whats the transit procedure at Frankfurt ?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Security and to your departure gate.
i have a connection flight in fra and layover time is 1.40 .... i need to catch lufthansa to blr 1.40 is enough time and diid i need to go through secruity screening again..
Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to go through security screening in Frankfurt on your way to Bangalore.
I have 1h 15 min layover in FRA, arriving from ATL and leaving to MAA,. Do I need to change terminals and go through passport control?
If both flights are on Lufthansa all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
My ATL - FRA leg in on Delta and my FRA - MAA on Lufthansa
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
1 reservation and no checked bags
Then you can just take the Skyline train to Terminal 1 and should have enough time.
Awesome! Thanks 'ZAP'!
Greetings, I fly from Budapest to Tokyo with 1 h layover in Frankfurt. 1st flight is operated by Lufthansa, 2nd by ANA (both Star Alliance members). Is that layover time enough? Both flights are set at Terminal 1. Will they automatically take care of my luggage? I am EU-citizen leaving Schengen
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate.
Thank you!
