Going to be our first time in FRA. Arriving from Boston on LH423 at 5:35AM. Then connecting onward to Helsinki on LH 848 at 9:35AM (Same tickets). I have a Thai passport and a friend has a US passport. What's the transfer process like? Do we have to go through custom and immigration before going onward to HEL? Does having an Aegean Gold help?
You will go through passport control then to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Hi! We're thinking of booking LH949 MAN to FRA, Layover 55min,
LH1292 FRA to LCA. We will be travelling with two small children (2 and 5). Will we make the connection? Do we have to go through passport and security? I have a non EU passport. Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Air Canada to FRA, then 1hour, 20 min to takeoff on Lufthansa flight to FCO. Same terminal. I will be using my gate checked folding mobility scooter which should be brought up from the cargo hold with the kiddie strollers to the aircraft door so I can ride it to my Lufthansa flight. Do I have to go through security between flights? Will this timing work?
Times given are not wheels down to wheels up - they are gate to gate. You do not have to go through security. You will just go through Schengen entry passport control. You have enough time.
We've got a transit of 1.5 hours in FRA, but are on separate tickets (Croatian Air & Virgin Australia) and we're concerned about having to collect bags and checking in to the next flight. Is this going to be long enough?
On two separate reservations, no I don't think that's long enough.
Hello! I'm flying from Toronto to Manchester (UK). Connecting through Frankfurt. Is 2 hrs enough time to make the connection?
Yes that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
arriving FRA from Kosovo on Adria Air at 8:40 am. Must pick up luggage and catch American Airlines flight to Tampa that departs at 11:00. Possible?
American does not fly nonstop from Frankfurt to Tampa. That will be a very difficult connection, if not impossible.
...sorry...charlotte....my final destination... Thank you for your help
Hello!! We are traveling from Split Croatia to Frankfurt and then on to Boston. Our Connection in FRA is 60 min. And we are flying in on Croatia Airlines and out on Lufthansa. Will we have enough time to make it?
Yes, that should be enough time. you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello,
I will have a flight from Warsaw connecting to Toronto via Frankfurt. I am arriving with LOT and leaving with CONDOR.
Is 90minutes enough for a connection?
Could you please let me know if I will have to pass a security check line and passport control?

Thank you very much in advance.
If both tickets are on the same reservation that is enough time. You just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate.
Thank you very much!:)
Is 1h 25 min enough time at FRA? I'm coming from CPH and continuing to LAX. I travel with Lufthansa. Thanks
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate.
Daughters are traveling from Charlotte to Frankfurt on American then Frankfurt to Sofia on Lufthansa. Will they clear immigration? Customs? Claim luggage? Need Visa?
Looking at January 3, 2017 itinerary. Before booking through United, is 3 hours enough time to make the connection between the United SFO to FRA flight and the Lufthansa FRA to MAD flight? Will I have to clear customs? Go through passport control?
Yes, that is enough time. In Frankfurt you will just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate.
Thank you for the quick response and the answers to my questions.
