    Flying Lufthansa YYZ-FRA then Qatar FRA-DOH on 17January. Is 2 hours between flights enough time to change gates? Are the gates in the same Hall- do we need to go through immigration or security again?..thanks


    Both Airlines use Terminal 1. you won't know your exact arrival hall until the day of your flight. Qatar departs from 1B. You should have enough time if your bags are checked through to DOH or if you don't have checked bags. It will be difficult if you have to transfer bags between airlines. You should not have to go through passport control or security.


  • Short Layover ?
    Jan 15, 2016
    I`m travelling from Denver- Frankfurt and from Frankfurt to Pune. My layover in Frankfurt is just 50 mins ? Is to short , can i make to gate ? I saw i need to go through security.. is there fast security line ?


    You shouldn't have to go through security. You have just enough time though.


  • 1 hour layover within terminal 1

    Arriving from BRU to FRA and connecting to FRA - PEK in only 1 hour. Sufficient or better take an earlier flight BRU-FRA?


    No need to post the same question twice.

    Flying from ORD to FRA to TIA with a 1 hour 55 minutes layover. Is it enough time?


    That should be enough time. You will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, since you are not entering the Schengen Area.

    I am coming from SFO on United and changing to LH at FRA then on to Prague. I have a little over one hour to make the change. Assuming SFO flight is on time is one hour and 15 minutes sufficient time


    That should be just about enough time.


  • 1 hour Transfer time in FRA

    Hello I am arriving from Tel Aviv (TLV) to FRA at 11:35 (to terminal 1) am and have next flight to Paris CDG at 12:35 also from Terminal 1. Is 1 hour is enough time for the transfer? Thanks


    That should be enough time assuming your first flight is on-time.


  • International to non-Schengen - have to recheck bags
    Jan 10, 2016
    I am arriving from SFO on LH at 11.05am, and I have a separate ticket to LHR (also on LH) at 2pm - would I be able to make the connection? I would have to clear customs, pick up my bags, and check in again


    You can probably call Lufthansa and have your two reservations joined together so you can have your bags checked through to London, then you would just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Frankfurt. However, as long as your flight is on-time I think you have enough time, even if you don't.


    Thanks! If there was another flight that left at 12.00pm instead, could I book that? Or would that be cutting it very close (provided that I could have my bags sent through and get given a boarding pass at SFO)


    No, I don't think a noon flight would be very feasible unless your flight arrived early.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1

    Can Transit Passengers Travelling via Frankfurt arrive at Terminal 1 & Depart from Terminal 2. we are coming from UAE, travelling to Toronto, Indian National.


    Yes, the Skyline train runs both inside and outside the sterile connection area. Note that you will still need a Schengen Airport Transit visa.


  • Short time to check in to another flight

    Hallo, I am flying from Djerba with Tunisair to FRA and there I have only 2 hours to change on the flight to Prague with Lufthansa. Flights are on separated reservations. Is it enough time?


    With checked bags that would be a bit difficult, especially considering where you're coming from.


    Iam Czech citizen not Tunisian, do you think that the time is not enough at all ?


    I guess it's possible, there's obviously some risk involved if you have checked baggage. Without checked baggage I think it would be pretty easy.

    I am travelling from Birmingham to frankfurt and then on to Joburg. I have 1.25 min to transfer at terminal 1. What is the process please.


    You will just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

    Im traveling tomorrow to Frankfurt and I have one hour to take my flight to Lisbon with Lufthansa. Is it in the same level? Nearby?thank you


    You didn't post where you are coming from? Hard to answer your question without that information.


    Oh sorry I'm coming from Portugal


    You're flying from Portugal to Portugal through Frankfurt?


  • Short transit time for FRA
    Jan 8, 2016
    I have a short transit time of 2 hours when my flight reaches FRA from DRS, to catch another from FRA, all within same terminal. Would 2 hours transit time be sufficient to clear customs?


    You don't have to go through customs when you're connecting. Assuming your departing flight is outside the schengen area, all you have to do in Frankfurt is Schengen exit passport control, which is a very brief process. You have enough time.


  • clearing customs
    Jan 7, 2016
    I am flying from IAH - FRA- BCN, when do I clear customs and will an hour layover in FRA be enough time. Also return flight is BCN- FRA - IAH hour layover in FRA again clearing customs etc, will that be enough time.


    On your way to Barcelona you will go through Schengen exit passport control in Frankfurt. On your return to Houston, in Frankfurt you will go through Schengen exit passport control (which is a very brief process). You will go through US Immigration and Customs when you get to Houston. An hour is doable both ways.


    I am on 1 ticket and in reading other posts once bags are checked at IAH they will go straight to BCN and I will not have to claim until then, CORRECT????? and thank you so much for the info


    Yes, that is correct. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt going either way.


  • Condor to Lufthansa transfer
    Jan 7, 2016
    Will be arriving from LAS on Condor and transferring to Lufthansa for AMS. Bags will be checked through? Are the gates in the same terminal? Do I have to go thru full Immigration and security? Also, how far a walk is it from the DB train station to Condor check-in? Thanks.


    If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be checked through, you will have to go through Immigation, you should not have to go through security. Why do you care where the check-in in Frankfurt is?


  • 60 min connection
    Jan 6, 2016
    I have a flight from Tel Aviv to Amsterdam through Frankfurt airport with lufthansa airlines. Is 60 minutes enough time for connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your flight from Tel Aviv is on-time.
