air canada from Toronto transfer to Lufthansa to nice. Will i have to go through security between transfers at FRA? I have 90 mins to transfer. Recently flew YYZ-FRA-UK and had to run from gates A-z to Gate B (Terminal 1) take the train and go through security again. Missed flight due to long line at Security, late landing. Hoping to not have to repeat that experience again.

I will get a train from FRA to Koln. Are 2h enough for it? Thank you
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hello, I have 1h30min to a connection flight to New York. I'll arrive in Terminal 1 from Vilnius (15:40) and need to catch the flight at 17:10, Terminal 1. Would i have enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hi I arrive from bangalore, india to frankfurt with 1.4hrs as layover time to catch my connecting flight to seattle,WA, USA.
Will that be enough time? I guess my baggage will be checked through and through from Bangalore to Seattle. The terminal for both flights is same..terminal 1
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go through security and to your departure gate.
Hi there, I fly from ZRH via FRA to DFW. I have a connection time of 50 minutes. Do I have to go through handbag security check? Is the connection time enough to catch my connection flight? thanks for your answer...
You will not have to go through security. Just Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hello, I am flying from Houston to Frankfurt via United Airlines later this week. I arrive at Frankfurt at 11:50am, and connect to Vienna at 12:50pm via Austrian Airlines. I am really concerned about this 60min layover! Do I have to recheck my bag? Are these terminals and/or gates close to eachother? Is this 60min time frame feasible?
You don't have to do anything with your bag. Both flights will be in Terminal 1. All you have to do is go through Schengen Passport control and to your departure gate.
So do you think the one hour time frame is doable?
Yes, it doesn't leave much time to spare but it's doable.
Oh great! Thank you so much for the advice! I'll just make sure to walk super fast, or maybe even pick up a light jog! I appreciate your time!
Hope you can put my mind at ease!

First time at FRA and first time transferring!

Lufthansa through booked flights on Sunday 18th December. LH953 into FRA AT 11:35 then OS264 out to SZG AT 12:30... Only 55 mins to transfer

Return is OS265 landing FRA 15:35 then LH956 out at 16:20... Only 45 mins!

Not too worried about the return flight being bumped because we're coming home and I could do a bit of plane watching but...

The 55 minute outbound worries me... Most people say at least an hour from what I've seen on here... Our flight always uses a remote gate too!

Lufthansa say it's doable but... Do you think we need to rebook the concert we're going to in Salzburg that night?

Thanks in advance all !
Those are pretty difficult connections. You will also have to go through Schengen entry passport control.
Thank you ZAP... Going to write to Lufthansa to request FOC rebooking (crossed fingers)
Is 1 hour 30 enough? From all the (very helpful!) comments here, it seems like it would be plenty of time as I would only have Schengen passport exit. True? Thank you!
Yes, that should be enough time. That is correct.
Arriving to Frankfurt Terminal 1 from Kuwait city (Lufthansa 635), needing to get to a connecting flight to Munich (Lufthansa 65) in Terminal 2. I only have 1 hour to make this connection. Is this enough time? I am a USA passport holder.
No Lufthansa flights use Terminal 2. Both flights will be in Terminal 1. You have just enough time as you will have to go through security and passport control in Frankfurt.
Great, thank you for the information. and its Lufthansa flight 96 to Munich. My mistake.
Hello, i have 1h5min to a conection flight to New york, arrive in Terminal 1 and need to catch the flight in the same terminal. Would i have enough time?
If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time.
