    First connecting flight we have booked and are nervous 1 hour 20 min, is this enough time and is it less complicated than I think.


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

    I have a 60min transfer time in FRA between my flight from Istanbul and the connecting one to Washington DC. Can I make it?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through security and to you departure gate.


    If both tickets are on the same reservation, yes, that should be enough time.


  • USA > Schengen transfer
    Apr 13, 2016
    2 US Citizen passengers flying from SFO to FRA arrving at 3pm on Lufthansa. We need to make another Lufthansa flight to Barcelona at 4:05pm. We will have checked luggage. Is this transfer doable?


    EDIT: This is all on the same booking.


    It is possible. All you have to do is go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate.


    Thanks, Zap. The hour long window makes me nervous. Good to know it's doable assuming nothing drastically goes wrong.


  • From Frankfurt to dubrovnik
    Apr 12, 2016
    I am an Egyptian citizen flying from Amsterdam to Dubrovnik via Frankfurt. I have the necessary multiple entry Schenectady visa. Will I have to pass through passport control? I want to make sure I have an exit stamp from the shengen area as I am coming back to Germany later on to stay for a couple of days and I don't want to have troubles then because of lacking an exit stamp.


    Yes, you will go through Schengen exit passport control in Frankfurt. Just make sure they stamp it.

    Hi, I am flying to Toronto from Chennai with Connection in FRA. The connection time is 50 mins. Is this a good enough time?


    It's pretty difficult. You will have to go through security and to your departure gate. I wouldn't say it's impossible though.


  • Tallinn-FRA-Malta 1.25 hour connection
    Apr 12, 2016
    Tallinn-FRA-Malta 1.25 hour connection. Is this sufficient time for a first time flyer. Can I check-in for the second flight in Tallinn. I will be flying Lufthansa, terminal 1


    If both flights are on Lufthansa then you will be issued both boarding passes in Tallinn. This is a fairly easy connection as all flights are within the Schengen Area. All you have to do in FRA is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you ZAP! I feel much more relaxed now knowing that :)

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thankyou Zap

  • Connection time 50 min Riga-FRA-Madrid
    Apr 8, 2016
    Hi, I am travelling from Madrid to Frankfurt and then from FRA to Riga by Lufthansa on Sunday morning May 15. I have 50 minutes to connect, I will have no luggage. Should I be worried about time?


    Since both flights are within the Schengen Area that should be enough time.


    Many thanks for your reply!


  • Sufficient Connection Time: Terminal 1 to Terminal 2?
    Apr 7, 2016
    My wife is traveling from Baltimore, MD (USA) via Condor Airlines to Frankfurt, arriving on 8 June 2016 at 0930 in Terminal 1. Her onward Air Berlin flight to Berlin departs at 1050 in Terminal 2. Therefore, she has 1 hour and 20 minutes between flights and a Terminal change. Does she have enough time to make this connection? What should she do to improve her chances of getting to her Air Berlin gate on time for the flight?


    With checked bags she has no chance of making this, without checked bags she has a slight chance if she is already checked in online for her Air Berlin flight.


    Thanks for your response. Regarding my wife's checked bag, her Air Berlin flight is on her scheduled itinerary so she planned to check it through to Berlin, assuming Condor allows that. If her bag doesn't make the Air Berlin flight, we assumed it would come separately on a later flight. She will be checked in online for the Air Berlin flight before she leaves the US. My main concern is how she can best navigate between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 in the limited time available so that she can be at the Air Berlin gate before it closes. Very much appreciate your advice!


    Then if everything is on the same itinerary I think it's possible. The Skyline train connects the terminals.


    Thank you very much for your quick and helpful responses! Now maybe my wife will forgive me for booking her on Condor.

    I am flying by lufthansa from Riyadh ,Saudi arabia to Denver , usa through Frankfurt .. Do I have to go through passport and security control in Frankfurt airport ?


    No, since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not go through passport control in Frankfurt, just security.


  • Connecting from USA to terminal 2
    Apr 4, 2016
    My wife is traveling Thursday, arriving from SFO on LH @ 1050 and departing out of Terminal 2 to MAD on Iberia @ 1210. I just want to be sure I understand the sequence; she will clear passport control in terminal 1 then take the train to terminal 2 and go through security there? She is a US Citizen.


    Are both tickets on the same reservation? Does she have checked bags?
