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!
Hi I have 2 questions - I am Flying in from Dubrovnik to London via Frankfurt with a layover time of 1.25mts in terminal 1 itself. Is that time enough for me to change planes in the same terminal and will my luggage be transferred too? I'm flying Croatia so ir from Dubrovnik and then Lufthansa from Frankfurt.
Yes, that should be enough time.
Thank you!
I am flying from LA to Rome in summer. Our layover is in Frankfurt with 1 hour. Is that enough time to transfer luggages. The flight is on 1 ticket with Luthansa.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My flight is from Bangaloreto Stuttgart via frankfurt. (Both flights lufthansa). I have a layover time of 1 hours... Is this enough for transfer.
It will be difficult unless the flight from Bangalore arrives early.
I am flying Lufthansa and I have a three hour layover in Frankfurt from my flight from Atlanta and then I go on to Rome. Is there enough time to go to the lounge or would you advise against it? What are some good ideas for things to do at Frankfurt during our connection?
yes that is enough time to go to a lounge
Goodday, I have a flight from Berlin (TXL) to Frankfurt (FRA) with 1.5 hours between flights. I believe Air Berlin arrives at terminal 2 and Air Canada departs from terminal 1. Guessing there would be an exit passport control plus change of terminal, is this doable (with no checked baggage?). Or would it be best to book a Lufthansa connection out of Berlin? **The ticket would be separate tickets.
With no checked baggage this is probably doable.
I am a lebanese passport holder with a valid US visa.

Traveling from Canada to Istanbul via Frankfurt Main.

2 different airlines:

Air Canada: from Canada to Frankfurt
Lufthansa: from Frankfurt to Istanbul

Ps: I do not have any luggages. Just a carry-on baggage of 5 kg.

My question is the following:

Do i need a transit/visitor Visa for the layover? (i have a valid US visa)

i read online that i will need a transit/visitor visa if i want to to pick up my baggage and/or have to check-in again.

in my case, i do not have any baggages. but i need to check in again at the lufthansa counter to get my boarding pass to Istanbul??

Do i need a visa / transit visa in my case?

thank for your help.
Since you have a valid US Visa and both flights are in Terminal 1 you can stay in the sterile transfer area and do not need a Schengen transit visa.
I am having flight from Ljubljana to Toronto with connection in Frankfurt. Plane arrives to Frankfurt at 8:25 and then departures from Frankfurt at 9:20 AM. Is 55 min layover enough for international flight?
That should be just enough time if the flight from Ljubljana is on-time.
Thanks Zap, yeah i also think it is doable. i have JP116 flight that comes to terminal 1. Due to small plane there is no gate but need to take the bus. I then go with AirCanada 873 flight that is also terminal 1, gate B should be doable ....i am little worried above the baggage might not make it :=.
Adria flights are usually on-time --> as per last month stats earliest arrival was at 8:08, while latest was 8:38 ....but most were on site around 8:20AM
