    I am arriving from DFW and have connecting flight to Bremen all on 1 ticket LH airlines. Will we have to go through Passport Control and/or Security again?

     

    In Frankfurt you will go through Schengen passport control. You barely have enough time as your flight to Bremen will use a bus to board and the boarding gate will close very promptly.

    Hello I wanted to know if 1 hr & 25 mins is enough time to transfer from Barcelona to Franfurt to L.A.? Will the flights be in the same terminal? Will I have to go through any customs or passport control? I am flying United all the way through.

     

    If all your flights are on Lufthansa then yes they will all be in the same terminal. Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control but that usually doesn't take more than a minute or 2.

     

  • Making connection in FRA on United from US to Lufthansa going to IST

    We will be arriving into FRA on a United flight from Houston,USA and catching a Lufthansa flight to Istanbul. We have 1 hour 20 min to make the connection. Is that possible?

     

    Yes, that's possible. Since you won't be entering the schengen area you won't have to go through passport control, just from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks so much!!!

    Will be arriving LH 6797 from Ottawa, Canada at 6.15 connecting to Florence, Italy LH 308 at 7.40. Connection time is 1 hr 25 minutes. I am holder of Canadian passport. Will have have to change terminal and will I have enough time for this connection. Thank you

     

    LH 6797 is Air Canada flight 838. You will not have to change terminals. You will just have to go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you

    We have an hour and a half layover in FRA from the United States going to Prague. Do we need to go through immigration/passport control then? Is 1.5 hours enough time? Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will go through Schengen passport control in Frankfurt. You will not do anything with your baggage. you should have enough time.

     

    Thank you very much, Zap!

    Good morning. We have an hour layover in FRA, flying from Dubrovnik (United Airlines operated by Croatia AL) to Seattle (UA operated by Lufthansa). Do we need to go through immigration? Will we have enough time? Flights were booked with single tickets. Thank you

     

    No, since you are not entering the Schengen area you will not have to go through passport control. You should barely have enough time.

     

    Your response does help. It's appreciated.

     

  • Gate V129?

    Flight UNITED989 arrived at gate V129 on June 30 2015. Where is that? Could a passenger make it to their connecting flight in Terminal 1 which left an hour later?

     

    An hour is sort of pushing it for an International to International or International to schengen connection in Frankfurt. It' possible but difficult and everything has to go perfectly.

    Hi!Arriving at Frankfurt airport from Sofia- Lufthasa(LH1429). Flying on one ticket, arriving at FRANKFURT Terminal 1 and connecting flight to MIAMI(LH462) departing Terminal 1. How much time does it take from 1 place to the other? Im with BG passport, need I passport control and immigration? I have an upcoming 85 minute slot between a landing in Frankfurt from Sofia and departing from FRA to Miami. Whats the easy and short way to the pair Z and the departure gate? Thanks for your help.

     

    Since you will not be entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through Schengen passport control. You will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and through security. Just follow the signs. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you very much ZAP! But whats the best way: Fast lane security or Sky line train?And whats mean outside security and inside security?

    Hi, I have a 2 hr 10 min layover in FRA, flying in from Madrid and connecting to Toronto. Both flights are Lufthansa at Terminal 1 on a single ticket. From what I understand and have read, all I need to do is go through security, correct? My bags will be checked all the way. Will I need to go through passport control? I assume 2 hr 10 min gives me more than enough time. Thanks.

     

    Actually all you have to do is go through Schengen exit passport control. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks very much!

     

  • 55 MIN CONNECTION

    Hi! I have a concern. I have booked a flight from Col to Stockolm through Frankfurt Airport. I will only have 55 min to change plane. However both flights will be with Lufthansa. Will I have to go through immigration? Do I have to change terminal? Will 55 min be enough to do the transfer? Thanks in advance!

     

    BTW I forgot to say that both flights were purchased on a single reservation!

     

    is "Col" Cologne? If so, the code is CGN. No, you will not go through Immigration as both Germany and Sweden are in the Schengen Area. All you have to do in Frankfurt is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in the same part of the terminal. Now if "Col" is Columbo or Columbus, that's something different.

     

    Thanks for your help!! by COL I mean Colombia (Country)... does it make any difference when talking about times??

     

    Colombia - Bogota (BOG)

     

    Yes, it does make a difference, it will be very hard to make your connection. You will have to hope your flight from Bogota is on-time. If both flights are on Lufthansa they will both be in Terminal 1. You will have to go through Schengen passport control on arrival.

     

    Hello there, I have a concern. I have booked a flight from MAN to TUN through Frankfurt Airport. I will only have 55 min to change plane. However both flights will be with Lufthansa. Will I have to go through immigration/security? Will 55 min be enough to do the transfer? Thank you very much

    Hello, I am looking at a flight from Split on Croatia Air with 1hr to connect in FRA before Lufthansa flight to Bangkok. Will I have to recheck baggage and go through security? Is this enough time? Thanks for any help.

     

    Were your tickets purchased on a single reservation? If so, you will not have to claim your bags or go through passport control in Frankfurt.

     

    Thanks for the response. Yes, the tickets are under one reservation even though it's with multiple airlines. Do you think an hour is possible for me to catch the connecting Lufthansa flight from Croatia Air?

     

    An hour is doable but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of a delay or issue.

    We are traveling from Budapest to Vancouver through FRA. We have a 2 hour stopover. Is this enough time to transfer and will our bags check through?

     

    Yes, assuming both flights were purchased together and are on Lufthansa your bags will be transferred and that is plenty of time.

    I'm arriving in Frankfurt at at 10:55 am from Vancouver on LH 498 and connecting to flight LH 990 to Amsterdam at 12:15 pm. Is that enough time?

     

    All you have to do is follow the signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen passport control on your way. You have enough time, but not much to spare.
