Hi, arriving terminal 1 from canada and departing terminal 1 to Beirut. No checked bags. Standby ticket and not checked into MEA flight. 1 HR and 5min connection. Enough time ? Thank you.
It's not impossible, you'll just have to run to the MEA gate and hope the agents there are accomodating.
I have a connection between Geneva flight LH1227 arriving at Terminal 1A-Plus, Bus (20:50) to a Bangkok flight LH772 from Terminal 1, Gate B25. The theoretical time is one hour and 10 minutes including the bus transfer from aiplane to terminal. Is this doable?
Thank you for any information I can get.
Yes, that is possible if the flight from Geneva is on-time.
Thank you. I cannot find on any map where A-Plus zone is. Would you have an idea? Also, I assume I will have to go through passport control.
I believe it's a bus gate on the lower level of A. Yes, you will go through Schengen exit passport control, which is typically a brief process.
Thank you for the information!
Arriving at FRA on United from San Francisco. Connection on Lufthansa to Thessaloniki, Greece. Only have 1 hour, is this enough time and do I have to go through security?
You do not have to go through security. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you.
I will be arriving on Lufthansa from Denver, CO into Frankfurt at 11:10am. I have a connecting flight to Nuremberg at 1:00 pm also on Lufthansa. Will i have enough time? Also, if I check luggage, will it go all the way through to Nuremberg or do I have to re-check it in Frankfurt?
Thank you
Yes, that is enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt. Just go through passport control and to your departure gate.
Forgot to say that it looks like a change from Terminal 1 to Terminal E. Do you still feel this is ok? Thank you so much for your responses!
Frankfurt does not have a "Terminal E". Both flights are in Terminal 1. The "Terminal E" you are seeing is your arrival terminal in Boston.
Hi, I'm flying from Milano Linate Airport, LH 271, on Tuesday, arriving Frankfurt Terminal 1 at 11:55 a.m. (if it's on time). However, I'm concerned because my next flight is LH 422, leaving for Boston at 1:04. This is only a 70-minute change. Will I have to go through security again? And what is the best way to ensure I don't miss that flight? I had thought, the last time I did this, that there was a special shuttle but somehow I wound up on that needed a security re-check. Thank you!
No, you do not have to go through security again. You shouldn't have to take a shuttle either. Just go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I will be traveling from Ethiopia to Frankfurt with Lufthansa and arrives at 5:10am at terminal 1 and depart with same airline from same terminal at 10:20 am. Di I need to pick my bag and go through recheck?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt.
Thank you very much!
Hi there, I will be flying from Seoul, arriving 17:00 at terminal 1. I then have a departure from terminal 2 going to London City? Is a 1hr 5 minute connection time enough? Thanks
If it's two separate reservations and you have checked baggage, that is not enough time. If you can provide more info on airlines, tickets, and baggage, I can help you more.
Certainly. It's booked as one reservation from Seoul to London City, business class. Flying Asiana to Frankfurt and then BA Cityflyer to London. As I understand it I won't need to re-check in baggage at Frankfurt.
That is correct, you won't have to re-check bags in Frankfurt, You just have to take the Skyline to Terminal 1. This is doable, but leaves no time to spare.
Ok great, many thanks for your help.
LH 447 from Denver arriving 15 oct at 11:00AM terminal 1 connecting to LH992 to Amsterdam 12:30 pm. I have a Dutch passport. Will I be able to make the connection? Do I have to pick up my bags or will they be transfered to the connecting flight?
Yes, that is enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You will just go through passport control and to your departure gate.
I'm flying Air Lufthansa from the Uk to Frankfurt then continuing with the same airline to Toronto. I will only have carry-on luggage. Is 1h 50 minutes enough time?
Yes, that's plenty of time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
