Hi, traveling Lufthansa from Rome to NYC and have about 40 mins to transfer. Thus far the Rome flight arrives at A gates and NYC flight leaves Z gates, do I have enough time? Hard to understand the "stacking" of Z gates "above" A gates, so it appears the potential gates are close. Am traveling with daughter so I am concerned. Thanks for any suggestions and responses.
I'm flying Vancouver to Venice connecting Frankfurt with a 1 hour 35 minute connecting time. All flights are on Lufthansa.
What can I expect?
Will I need to claim my luggage there or will it go direct to Venice?
You do not have to claim your bags in Frankfurt. You just have to go through Schengen Entry Passport control and to your departure gate.
I'm flying Lufthansa First next month. What should I expect when arriving in Frankfurt to get to the connecting flight to Amsterdam? its my first time going abroad.
You will go through Schengen Entry Passport control and to your departure gate.
Hi there, I have barely 2hours in between for this transit by Lufthansa flight both in Terminal 1. Is that I will be ok. I heard that the security check is quite time consuming. Kindly advise the tips. Thanks
There is no security check in Frankfurt since you are coming from Zurich. You just have to go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate.
My son is traveling from Mexico to Tel Aviv thru Frankfurt. Any special requirements? Does he need to go thru inmigration in Frankfurt? Pick lugagge in Frankfurtor luggage is transferred automatically to the flight to Tel Aviv?
All he will have to do in Frankfurt is go through Israeli security at the departure gate.
Thanks for the comment. We were at the MEX airport just to visit and lady at Lufthansa counter told us that from MEX to TLV thru FRA my son ( he is 15) has to go thru inmigration. Could you confirm no inmigration needed? I agree with you that he is only in Transit to TLV and should not go thru inmigration. Thanks for help. It is my first son's long travel and we want to make sure everything will be smooth for him.
