Hi. I am flying from Toronto to Florence with a 1 hour and 15 minute layover in Frankfurt. Is that enough time to make the next flight? (flights are with Air Canada and Lufthansa). Thanks for your help.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. you just have to go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate.
Arriving AC9583 at 8.30 am and leaving AC0873 at 9.20 am both from Terminal 1. Is 50 mins sufficient for transit?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Will 1 hour 20 min layover be enough time to clear customs and immigration?
Yes, all you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen exit passport control. Where are you flying to from Frankfurt?
Flying to Fra from Mumbai. Arrive at 8:00 at terminal 1 and leave from terminal 1 at 9:20. Will we have time for transfer? Thank you
Where are you flying to?
I've a flight from Zagreb to Frankfurt (OU410) arriving 0915 in FRA Terminal 1. Then I have flight from FRA to London at 1055 (BA 0903) departing from Terminal 2. Do I have enough time? Do I have to collect my luggage and clear immigration again? Thanks.
If it's two separate reservations, you will have to go through Immigration, claim your bags, take the Skyline to Terminal 2, re-check your bags, go through security and schengen exit passport control. That will be very difficult to do in that amount of time.
Thanks! very helpful advice. Looks like I won't risk it.
Flying Orlando FL to Prague. Change planes in Frankfurt. Will arrive and leave from terminal 1. What do we have to do upon arrival? Passport check? Is 90 min enough time?
If both flights are on Lufthansa then all you have to do is go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Arrive on 419 from IAD at 7:55a. Connecting to 686 to TLV, departing at 10:05a. How long to walk, with luggage, and do we again go through security. Thanks
That is plenty of time. You don't have to go through any normal security but there may be a secondary screening at your gate because you are going to Israel.
We are flying from YVR LH 493 connecting to Zag LH 1414 75 minutes to get to gate....do we have to pass security and do we have enough time. Thanks
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Traveling from Athens through Frankfurt to Atlanta in Jul. Aegean will get me to Frankfurt and ongoing connection with Delta. Term 1 and 2. The connection time is only 1hr 15 min. Will this be enough time to get through the airport. The flights will be booked on the same reservation.
If everything is on the same reservation that is just enough time.
I am flying United from Washington Dulles to Frankfurt where I will take a connecting flight (Lufthansa) to Lisbon . Both flights were booked in one reservation. What must I do upon arrival at Frankfurt before boarding my flight to Lisbon? Do I (a) retrieve luggage, (b) go through passport control, (c) go through security again? Anything else? And has anybody used the gate to gate service? If so, what was the experience like? Thanks!
All you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen Passport control and to your departure gate. Nothing with your luggage.
Thanks!
