I arrive in Frankfurt at 12:45 on Condor from New orleans and have a connecting flight that was booked on separate ticket to Florence on Lufthansa at 16:05. I know I have to collect my bags and return thru customs. Do you think that will be enough time to make the flight?
That should be enough time.
I am traveling from San Francisco to Florence with a transfer at Frankfurt. I am flying on United Airlines and transfer to Lufthansa at FRA to go to FLR, booked through the same reservation. Is 1 hour 30 minutes enough time to comfortably make the connection from United to Lufthansa at FRA? Will I need to go through passport control and security? I am unfamiliar with the airport, so any information would truly be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Yes, that is enough time. You will just go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate. Just follow the signs.
I am arriving from LHR to Frankfurt, with a 1 hour connection time to make a flight to BOS. Both are Lufthansa flights. Based on yesterday's gates, it looks like the arrival flight comes into AEUW, a bus terminal. The departure to the US leaves from Z69. Is it going to be possible to make the connection flight?
That's barely possible if everything goes smoothly.
I am taking a flight with Lufthansa from Valencia and my connecting flight is with Air Canada I only have 1hr and 15mins and I am wondering if that will be enough time to make it?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I am arriving in Frankfurt on a Lufthansa flight at 20:55 and making a connection to another Lufthansa flight to Singapore at 21:55. Is 1 hour comfortable time for the connection, do I need to change terminals? Thanks for your help.
Where are you flying into Frankfurt from? Are both flights on the same reservation? Both flights will be in Terminal 1.
Flying to Frankfurt from Dublin, both will be on same booking and both Lufthansa. It seems if they are in the same terminal then 1hr should be fine? Thanks.
Yes, since you aren't entering the Schengen Area then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks for your help! Appreciate it. Best, John.
I have a 1:05 layover in Frankfort coming from Chicago on United. Flight to Hamburg is on Lufthansa. Is this enough time to get through immigration? Where do I go when I land in Frankfort?
In Frankfurt you will go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. That is a fairly risky connection.
Just booked a flight on Condor (Luftansa) and noticing only 1 hr + 5 mins allowed in FRA to make the connection. Very nervous about that. Never traveled international before. Is there a customs check to worry about here? Is that enough time for an inexperienced traveler to make it?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying LH 263 VRO - FRA and then connecting to LH6792 FRA-YYC with only 1.5 hours. Are the gates in the same terminal?
Yes, they are both in Terminal 1 even though the second flight is actually operated by Air Canada.
How to I navigate from arrival on LH441 IAH-FRA to LH1178 FRA-POR
Just follow signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen Entry passport control on your way. Also, the airport code for Porto is OPO.
We are flying from Prague to Vancouver B C with an 1 1/2 hr for the connection in Frankfurt. Is that enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
