  • Passport control and security check
    Mar 18, 2016
    Indian citizen traveling to Seattle from Bangalore,India via Frankfurt On United flight.layover time 2 hours. Do I have to go through passport control and security check.which is the terminal?


    Both flights are in Terminal 1. Since you are presumably holding a US Visitor visa or better, then you do not need an airport transit visa for this transfer. Note that both of your flights will be operated by Lufthansa. You will go through security but not passport control in Frankfurt.


    Thank u zap

    I can't answer this question unless you post your citizenship, permanent residency and where you are going (and presumably hold a visa for).

    I arrive in Frankfurt International airport on June 6 at 10:30 am from Palma on Condor airlines. Will I have enough time to make my connection to Lufthansa flight to Newark at 1:20 pm? Are they in the same terminal?


    That should be plenty of time. Yes they are in the same terminal.


  • Enough connection time ?

    I am a Canadian citizen. Flying with Lufthansa from Lisbon flight1169 arriving in Frankfurt 7:45pm. Next flight 1422 is also Lufthansa to Bucharest at 8:35 pm Do I have enough time to catch this flight? Thank you


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Are both flights on the same terminal ? There is an express lane?


    You don't need an express lane as you won't go through anything in Frankfurt as you are not entering the Schengen Area. Yes, all Lufthansa flights are in Terminal 1.

    I arrive in Frankfurt with only a one hour layover, I do not have a checked bag can I make my next flight to France?


    You're going to have to be more specific about where you're flying to Frankfurt from and what airlines you are flying.

    Connecting through FRA terminal 1 on LH codeshare with UA to LH codeshare with Aegean also Terminal. Booked one ticket. Connection time 1hr 10min. As I understand it, baggage is checked to SKG just have to go through passport control. Does passport control have an express lane for short connections? And is this enough time?


    There should be an express lane and you should have enough time.

    Flying from LAS to Rome via Frankfurt on Condor. Suppose to arrive at 10:50 in Frankfurt and catch Lufthansa flight at 12:20. From reading other posts, we should be able to make this since it's the same terminal. Does this sound correct? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. you will just have to go through Schengen Passport control in Frankfurt.


    Yes, we did have enough time to go through Shengen Passport Control and the Security line at Gate E1 (long line , but moved well). And of course, it was a rainy day, departures delayed, which helped. Thanks!


  • Travel from Krakow to Frankfurt to Houston, TX

    Traveling from Krakow to Frankfurt to Houston TX. How much time is needed for connection in Frankfurt (I will have a checked bag)?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation then I recommend 75 minutes


  • passport control in FRA?

    I am an American citizen. I am in London now and will travel from Heathrow to Leipzig with a short (50 mins) connection in Frankfurt. Will I have to go through passport control in Frankfurt? What are my chance of making the connection? (Both flights are Lufthansa so I assume it's the same terminal.) Many thanks. S.


    Yes, you will go through passport control in Frankfurt. This is a bit of a difficult connection.


  • Transfer from terminal 1 to terminal 2
    Mar 13, 2016
    I will be arriving from Budapest at 8:05am on Lufthansa and need to get American AL flight to Charlotte (CLT) in terminal 2 at 10am. I have no checked bags. Will I gave enough time and does this require going back through security?


    I believe you can take the skyline inside security if you already have the boarding pass for your American flight.


  • Connecting from Moscow to Atlanta on Lufthansa flights
    Mar 12, 2016
    Hello! I'm flying from Moscow to Atlanta via Frankfurt. Flights are lh1451 and Lh444. I understand that connection is within same terminal, but different halls. What kind of visa/passport or security control will I need to pass as Russian citizen? Is 1:55 enough for the connection? Any recommendations how to make it smoother? Thanks a lot!


    Since you are coming from the US and not entering the Schengen area, there should be no security or passport control. You should have enough time.


    Thanks for prompt response! My travel is actually in opposite direction from Russia to US. sorry if it was not clear. Does such connection involve any security or paperwork control?


    Sorry, misread that. In Frankfurt you will go through security but not passport control.

    Hi, I am travelling with family from Bangalore to Newark (LH - 755) on March 22, 2016 via Frankfurt. Can you please let me know which terminal the arrival at Frankfurt would be at? Is it terminal 1 or 3? Thanks Bob


    Both flights will be in Terminal 1 in Frankfurt if they are on Lufthansa.




  • LAX to FRA to NCE
    Mar 9, 2016
    I am flying into FRA from Los Angeles on April 2nd and my layover is only an hour and 15 minutes... Am I going to have to claim my bag, go through customs and then board the next plane? Any help is greatly appreciated.


    No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage if both flights are on Lufthansa. All you have to do is go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thank you!


  • 1hr 25min connection - Is it sufficient time
    Mar 9, 2016
    I am travelling from Calgary, on Air Canada AC844 and connect to Lufthansa LH756. I believe both arrive and depart from Terminal. Have never transitted through Frankfurt before. Is 1hr 25M enough. Also, do I need to redo security and passport check. Never experienced this at Heathrow where I normally transit through. Any insight would be most helpful


    I meant Terminal 1


    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area and are coming from Canada you don't have to do passport check or go through security. Just go to your departure gate.


    Thanks ZAP. Much Appreciated
