    Hi, I have a flight from Dusseldorf to Seattle with a 1h45min layover in Frankfurt. Both legs are run by the Lufthansa group. Is the layover enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • Help!!! DR - Prague

    I have a flight from Santo Domingo to Prague (with Condor) then a more than 2 hour layover at Frankfurt Airport (next flight is with Lufthansa. My question is will I have to pass through inmigration again or since the tickets say they are in the same terminal just go the gate? I will be checking one bag, but will I have to get it again and recheck it once I arrive in Frankfurt?? (the same as when you go to the US from abroad where you recheck your bag). I don't want my bag to get lost!!!!


    You will go through Schengen passport control and security in Frankfurt. You won't have to do anything with your bag.

    Hi, I am arriving by Lufthansa from India and have 55 mins to catch the next Lufthansa flight to Oslo. Feasible?


    That will be very difficult as you will have to go through Schengen passport control and security in Frankfurt.

    We are leaving Valencia,Spain to connect at Frankfurt to San Francisco. Is 11/2 hours enough?? Or would 4 hr layover be better???


    90 minutes should be enough time.


  • SJC to BLR via FRA

    Travelling to FRA from SJC via LH489 and have a 1 hour 25 minutes layover before I take LH754 from FRA to BLR. The flight arrives at Terminal 1 and LH754 also departs from Terminal 1. Is the layover too tight.


    That should be enough time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We fly into F'Furt from Manchester and then have 5.45 mins before the 20.45 flight to J'Burg. Realise that we can check our luggage straight through , but will we remain airside for this duration? Trying to work out what to do - thinking a meal but then lounge (Luxe) e is landside , so don't know how that would work and probably want to be more active rather that sit down - any ideas for a walk ( round the airport) and where we could leave our hand luggage? Would there be anywhere to have a shower prior to our evening flight? Any suggestions for a restaurant?


    Yes, you will stay airside. FRA airside is very large so there's lots of places to walk.

    I am traveling to Dubai with the layover of 1hr 30 min in Frankfurt is this much time is enough


    My flight is from From US to Dubai with layover of 1:30 at Frankfurt


    Yes, that should be enough time. Assuming all tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
