Flying United (Lufthanza) from IAD to FLR with a connection in FRA, all on same ticket. Do I have to go through passport control before making my connection? Thanks.
Yes, you will go through passport control in Frankfurt.
Flying into Frankfurt off Singapore SQ26 then connecting to Manchester LH940. My elderly mother - will she be outside at any time during transit and will it be a distance - will there be staff to help and assist if needed
The Manchester flight may board outdoors. If she needs assistance you can ask for it be contacting her airline.
Flying from Newark into Frankfurt and then 1 hour layover before flying to billund, Denmark. Both flights are operated by Lufthansa. Will 1 hour be enough time to connect in Frankfurt. Luggage are checked in to final destination
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying on Lufthansa from Washington to Frankfurt and then on Lufthansa to Malta - Only 65 minutes between arrival and departure - Will have carry-on luggage - Are these flights in the same terminal and can one get through passport control and security to make the Malta flight? - Thanks.
Yes, they are in the same terminal. You don't have to go through security, just Passport Control and you have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Arriving from Florence, IT on LH regional jet at gate A-1 at FRA, going on to IAD all on same ticket. Question is do I have to go thru passport control before going to the gate for the fight to IAD? My concern is I have a 1 hr 5 min connection. Thanks

Im flying from manchester into Frankfurt terminal 1 and then onto Orlando also from terminal 1. Do i have to collect my luggage and "check in" again or will my luggage automatically be sent to the connecting flight?

Many Thanks

If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt.
We are flying from Mumbai to Frankfurt and have a connecting flight to Toronto from Frankfurt. Connection time is 1 hour 20 mins. Is this enough time to catch the connecting flight. Will we have to go through security/immigration again? Our flight number is LH757 from Mumbai and LH 6676 from Frankfurt.
You will just have to go through security in Frankfurt. You will not go through Immigration as you are not entering the Schengen Area.
But will we have enough time. Our connecting flight is an Air Canada one. Will security take long - we just have an hour and 20 mins
Yes, you should have enough time.
In April, I'm flying from Chicago to Beirut via Frankfurt. I have 3 questions. I'm flying with United and Middle East Airline. Will I need to recheck baggage? Will I need to go through security check-in again? Will the arrival and departure gate be in the same terminal?
Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Both flights are in Terminal 1.
Both flights are on the same reservation.
Then all you need to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You might have to get your boarding pass from the MEA transfer desk if the first airline can't issue it.
Thank you for your help!
Hello, we are flying LH981 to Frankfurt from Dublin, Our connecting flight is LH772 to Bangkok – all booked on one ticket. The Layover time is 1hrs 5 mins which if obviously very tight. Will we need to clear immigration/security again in Frankfurt?
Since you are not entering the Schengen area you don't have to go through Immigration and because you are coming from somewhere in the EU, you don't have to go through security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hello. I am planning to fly from Johannesburg to Chicago, with a connection in Frankfurt. How long will I need to transfer? I am quite nervous.
If both flights are on the same reservation, 60-90 minutes is sufficient.
