  • Worried about connecting flight
    Feb 10, 2017

    In march I'm flying from Manchester to Toronto via Frankfurt. I'm apprehensive as I've never caught a connecting flight so I'd like to know a few things to put my mind at ease. I'm flying with Lufthansa then Air Canada. 1. Will I need to recheck baggage? 2. Will I need to go through security/check-in again? 3. Will the arrival and departure gate be in the same terminal?

     

    No, you don't need to do anything with your bags, you don't have to go through security, and both flights will be in Terminal 1.

    I will be landing from Leipzig Germany terminal 1A 3:25 PM and need to catch a flight to Toronto 5:10 PM terminal 1B. Is this doable?

     

    Yes, you just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Traveling Lufthansa and have a 50 minute connection in Frankfurt with my 9 month old by myself. Is this enough time?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thank you! Do I have to go through passport screening or do I just go straight to my gate?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport Control.

    Will be arriving UA from Washington DC with a 1hr 50 min layover to the connecting Adria flight to Ljubljana. Plan on carryon luggage only. Connection procedure? and is this enough time?

     

    You will go through Schengen Entry passport control, then to the Adria transfer desk if you don't already have your boarding pass, and then to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I´m traveling from BKK to Vienna with a stopover 3 hours in Vie. before flying to Frankfurt. There i have 1 hour 25 minutes to next flight to Keflavik. Is that enough time? All flights are Lufthansa and I´m a Schengen resident. The flights are booked in 1 ticket. Thank you.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that your flight from Bangkok to Vienna will be operated by Austrian Airlines.

    Hello! I am travelling from DFW to CPH, via FRA. Our connection is 1hr 20 minutes, and all of our flights are LH. When we arrive to FRA, what exactly do we do? Do we have to claim our bags and recheck them, is our connection enough time? Thank you!

     

    All you have to do is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I'm flying from BLR to FRA via Lufthansa arriving at 8:50 am. I have a connecting flight to Dallas at 10 am via Lufthansa. This gives me a transit time of 70 mins only. Will there be good enough time for my connecting flight to Dallas, USA? Thanks

     

    Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • United Airline but different carriers change over on Frankfurt

    I am travelling from London on a United ticket on flight UA 9232 but by Lufthansa carrier to Frankfurt on 12 May 17. I have to catch the connecting United Airlines flight to Chicago UA 906 the dame day. The difference between these two flights arrival and departure is one hour and 30 minutes. Can someone clarify whether is it possible for me to check in my baggage at London itself and collect it at Chicago ? And is the time of just one and half hour enough to change gates at Frankfurt ? In essence; whether United Airlines operating through another airline -Lufthansa in this case would provide me the facility of a through check in at London and I would not be burdened to collect and re-check in my bags at Frankfurt.

     

    Yes, you do not have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Many thanks ......you made my day !

    Do I need to collect my check in luggage at FRA? Thanks.

     

    No, you don't need to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt if both flights are on the same reservation. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I'm flying to LAX from heathrow with a connecting flight in Frankfurt, will 1 hour layover be enough time to get my connecting flight?

     

    If both flights are on Lufthansa, yes, that should be enough time.

    I am flying from South Africa to Croatia via FRA, all on Lufthansa. I have a Croatian visa, but will I need to go through security checks during transit and therefore require a Schengen visa?

     

    Security checks alone do not require a transit visa. Only border control does, unless you are a citizen of the few dozen countries that require an airport transit visa.

    I am flying from Philadelphia on American Airlines into Frankfurt. The flight lands at 8:30 am. I am departing FRA to Hanover on Lufthansa at 9:50 am. Is this enough time between flights? Will I have to claim my luggage and then re-check in with Lufthansa? The flights are on separate tickets.

     

    That is not realistically enough time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags and then transfer them between terminals yourself.
