  • YYZ - FRA - MUC - SVQ

    We are flying YYZ-FRA-MUC-Seville (Air Canada-Lufthansa). We have 60 minutes to change planes in FRA and are wondering if we have enough time. Will we go through Passport Control? Will we need to go through security?


    Yes, you will go through passport control, not security. You should have just enough time.


    Thanks!! Passage went well.

    I am flying Luthansa from Gothenburg, Sweden to Frankfurt to make a connection to go to Washington DC. I have a 1 hr 20 min connection time in Frankfurt. Is that enough time to make the transfer?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate.

    We are delayed in Miami by 3 hours to Frankfurt and have a connecting flight to Birmingham which boards at 11:30 we land at 11:00 now and need to get from Z to B will we have time


    You will likely miss the connection.


  • MUC - FRA - MIA with 45 min. in FRA
    May 4, 2016
    Hi, I fly from Munich (MUC) to FRA (arriving at Gate A) and have a 45 minutes connection for my flight to Miami (MIA) at Gate Z, all flights with LH. Do I have to pass passport control and security check? Thanks!


    Gate A: Bus arrival


    You will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control but not security. Apparently the lines at Schengen Exit Passport Control for the bus gates are really bad. This will be a difficult connection.


    Thanks for quick reply!


  • From Chicago (USA) to Manchester (UK) via Frankfurt
    May 2, 2016
    I will be taking UA944 from Chicago to Menchester (UA9458/ LH940). The connecting time is only 1 hour 20 minutes. Do I need to pass the passport control and do I have enough time? Thank you.


    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not go through passport control in Frankfurt. You have enough time.


    Thank you

    Apr 28, 2016
    Travelling from Toronto to Geneva via Frankfurt.. Toronto to Frankfurt with Condor and Frankfurt to Geneva with Lufthansa.. Will I have to collect my checked baggage at Frankfurt? Also, is a layover of 1 hour and 40 minutes enough to go through passport/security? Thanks in advance!


    If all tickets are on the same reservation then you will not have to claim your bags in Frankfurt. You will just go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    i am a citizen of Nigeria flying through FRANKFURT from Barbados to Nigeria.. I would be staying 5 hours in the international transit area.. Do i require a transit visa for this route?? because it was stated online that transiting through frankfurt and not leaving the international area doesn`t require a transit visa..


    Unless you hold a valid US Visa, Nigerian citizens are required to hold a Schengen Airport Transit Visa to transit the Schengen Area, even if they are staying wtihin the transit area. -


    But i got this online, what doesnthis mean precisely In these five airports in Germany you can stay at the International Transit Area without a visa: Cologne/Bonn Düsseldorf Frankfurt/Main Hamburg Munich


  • changing terminal, two separate tickets,do I need visa
    Apr 29, 2016
    If instead I have to change terminals from 1 to 2 in Frankfurt but also am arriving in Frankfurt on condor but to Bombay on Emirates. I do not need a visa intransit but if changing terminals do I need a visa


    It depends on your Citizenship and if you hold a valid visa for the US. Where are you coming from? Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations?


    The person has a Nepalese passport. He does not have any visa for the USA. This option would be on two separate tickets.


  • Connecting from Condor to Lufthansa
    Apr 29, 2016
    I am booked on one ticket arriving on Condor in Frankfurt at 12.35pm to leave Frankfurt to Bombay on Lufthansa at 1.35pm. Do I have to clear immigraion and is that enough time.


    I can't answer that question unless you post where you're flying from and flying to.


    Holding a Nepalese passport arriving in Frankfurt at 12.35pm on condor and leaving on Lufthansa to Bombay at 1.35pm. One ticket issued.


  • Change planes, change terminal
    Apr 27, 2016
    We are Ukrainian flying from punta Cana to Kiev, we stop in Frankfort terminal #1, our connection flight is at terminal #2, do we go through custom and immigration to get to terminal#2? If yes do we need travel visa to change terminals?


    The Skyline train allows transfer between terminals at FRA without having to go through passport control.


    We are flying Srilanka airlines which arrives on Terminal 2. Our connecting flight Air Canada is from Terminal 1. Is 1 hour 50 minutes enough time to transfer from one terminal to another. Our flight is not until August 2016.


  • Lufthansa to Condor
    Apr 26, 2016
    I am flying LH to Frankfurt, then Condor to Seattle USA, with 90 minutes connection time. Is it enough? Which terminal do I fly into and which do I fly away from? Thanks!


    Both flights are in Terminal 1. If both tickets are on the same reservation you have enough time.


    Thanks ZAP!


  • Vancouver to Split
    Apr 26, 2016
    Traveling from Vancouver (YVR) to Split, Croatia (SPU) on Lufthansa. Flight from Vancouver arrives in FRA at 1100 and connecting flight from FRA to SPU departs at 1205 also on Lufthansa. Is that enough time for connection? Do I only have to go through passport control and not worry about picking up my luggage in FRA? Thank you!


    You won't even go through passport control as Croatia is not yet in the Schengen Area. you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
