Flying on Lufthansa from Washington to Frankfurt and then on Lufthansa to Malta - Only 65 minutes between arrival and departure - Will have carry-on luggage - Are these flights in the same terminal and can one get through passport control and security to make the Malta flight? - Thanks.
Yes, they are in the same terminal. You don't have to go through security, just Passport Control and you have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Arriving from Florence, IT on LH regional jet at gate A-1 at FRA, going on to IAD all on same ticket. Question is do I have to go thru passport control before going to the gate for the fight to IAD? My concern is I have a 1 hr 5 min connection. Thanks
Yes, you will go through Schengen Exit Passport control. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Morning

Im flying from manchester into Frankfurt terminal 1 and then onto Orlando also from terminal 1. Do i have to collect my luggage and "check in" again or will my luggage automatically be sent to the connecting flight?

Many Thanks
Chris Holme
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt.
We are flying from Mumbai to Frankfurt and have a connecting flight to Toronto from Frankfurt. Connection time is 1 hour 20 mins. Is this enough time to catch the connecting flight. Will we have to go through security/immigration again? Our flight number is LH757 from Mumbai and LH 6676 from Frankfurt.
You will just have to go through security in Frankfurt. You will not go through Immigration as you are not entering the Schengen Area.
But will we have enough time. Our connecting flight is an Air Canada one. Will security take long - we just have an hour and 20 mins
Yes, you should have enough time.
In April, I'm flying from Chicago to Beirut via Frankfurt. I have 3 questions. I'm flying with United and Middle East Airline. Will I need to recheck baggage? Will I need to go through security check-in again? Will the arrival and departure gate be in the same terminal?
Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Both flights are in Terminal 1.
Both flights are on the same reservation.
Then all you need to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You might have to get your boarding pass from the MEA transfer desk if the first airline can't issue it.
Thank you for your help!
Hello, we are flying LH981 to Frankfurt from Dublin, Our connecting flight is LH772 to Bangkok – all booked on one ticket. The Layover time is 1hrs 5 mins which if obviously very tight. Will we need to clear immigration/security again in Frankfurt?
Since you are not entering the Schengen area you don't have to go through Immigration and because you are coming from somewhere in the EU, you don't have to go through security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hello. I am planning to fly from Johannesburg to Chicago, with a connection in Frankfurt. How long will I need to transfer? I am quite nervous.
If both flights are on the same reservation, 60-90 minutes is sufficient.
I will be arriving at Terminal 1 on a Lufthansa flight this Friday am and will need to collect my luggage and then check in with BA at Terminal 2 for an onward flight. Any tips? I assume that I need to clear security before boarding the skyline?
You will actually take the "non-sterile" side of the Skyline and go through security and Schengen Exit Passport Control after re-checking your bags with BA in Terminal 2.
Hello, I have 70 minutes, arriving on LH from JFK, need to make a flight to Zurich but my final destination is a non-schengen (Nairobi) will I have enough time? Do I need to clear immigration/security?
In Frankfurt you will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport control because you are first flying to another airport in the Schengen Area. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight from Lisbon on TAP to Frankfurt with a 1 hour connection to Dubrovnik on Croatia airline. Is this doable or should I search for a longer connection?
That is possible if both flights are on the same reservation.
