  • 50' layover on Frankfurt
    May 4, 2015
    2
    I need to go from Lisbon to Bucharest (both are in EU area). I found a variant in which I can fly from Lisbon to Frankfurt and from here I am having the next one to Bucharest. Both flights are Lufthansa. Are 50' enough time between the flights or is it too tight for Frankfurt airport?

     

    Bucharest is NOT in the Schengen Area. 50 minutes is barely enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control in Frankfurt.

     

    Hi, Thank you for the info. I've managed to find some alternatives - for the travel Bucharest to Lisbon, I will have a layover time of 1h 35 min on FRA and for the travel Lisbon to Bucharest a layover of 2hrs in FRA. Are they enough (considering also the Schengen area check)?

     

  • Transiting from United to Lufthansa at FRA

    Arriving from SFO to FRA, transiting to Lufthansa for LH690. Last time I was at FRA it was a nightmare. What is fastest way to do this w/o going through multiple security checks?

     

    There are security checks when you go to Israel. Not much way around that. You won't be entering the Schengen Area so you won't have to go through Schengen passport control.

     

  • FRA- Dubai - 1hr. 45 mins layover

    Dear All, I am traveling with kids to Dubai via Frankfurt. We will be traveling from Miami through American Airlines to FRA. In frankfurt, the layover period is 1hr 45 mins. My connecting flight is Emirates; I am not sure of the terminals. Is it possible to catch the Emirates flight? Please advise.....

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? Will you have checked baggage? It helps that both American and Emirates use Terminal 2 concourse E.

     

    I had purchased tickets separately, checked baggage need to be transferred directly, because we didn't,t have Frankfurt visa... Thanks much

     

    Well, since you purchased separate tickets, American is under no obligation to transfer your baggage to Emirates. You will either have to get a Schengen Transit Visa or you may be leaving your baggage behind in Frankfurt.

    You will just go through Schengen Exit Passport control in Frankfurt. You should have enough time.

    I'm flying from MXP through FRA on LH 247 June 21 with only an hour and five minutes to transfer to United flight UA988 to IAD. Will I have enough time? Do I have to go through customs or security? Will my bags automatically transfer? Thanks for your help.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through Schengen exit passport control. Your bags will be automatically transferred.

    I have about 2 hours to connect to Nuremberg. Is that enough?

     

    That should be enough time if all your tickets are on one reservation.

    I am flying AC from Toronto to Budapest with a 1hr 5min connection in Frankfurt. Is this enough time

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. As you will not be entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control.

     

    I am flying from NICE to bombay with 1 hour 10 minutes in frankfurt for my connection .Is it enough?

  • Does Changing Terminals mean that a schengen visa will be needed?

    I am taking a flight from Dubai, UAE to Montego Bay, Jamaica. I booked the flight through condor . The first half of my ticket is through condor and the second half is through Qantas which means I will have to change terminals. I asked condor, they said my luggage will be checked through till the final destination. However can I go from Terminal 1 to terminal 2 without passing passing passport control or needing a schengen visa?

     

    By the way both flights are on one ticket

     

    I'm confused. What airport are you connecting at? Qantas doesn't fly to Germany or Jamaica.

  • TLV to MIA through FRA

    Is a 2 hour connection time enough? Both flights are LH. My flight from TLV lands at 8:30 and the MIA flight leaves at 10:35 to MIA. No idea what gates these are.

     

    That should be plenty of time as well. Since you will not be entering the Schengen area you won't have to go through passport control, just security.

    That should be enough time.
