hi, i'm landing from PTY to FRA area B (non-shengen) and having a connected flight 8 hours later to SIN from area Z (non-schengen).
No issue regarding the connecting time.
Issue: it looks like there is no direct transit area between the area B and Z, meaning it is mandatory to do twice the passport check. Unfortunately my passport requires a Schengen Visa to enter EU.
In my case, can i go from area B to area Z without passport check, meaning i don't need a Schengen Visa?
It appears that there actually is a tunnel connecting the non-schengen areas of A and B to Z.
Yes there is a tunnel, I took it already once but it connects the area A n the initial part of area B which is still in the Schengen area. Actually when u came out from the elevator, you are exactly in front of the passport check, to leave the Schengen and enter the Non-Schengen area. Need to know if there is an other way actually. The tunnel is an almost secret and super useful way to avoid an additional customs screening, and it's super fundamental in case of short connection
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?
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.
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.
