  • FRA connection time
    Jan 23, 2016
    I'm traveling from Amsterdam to Frankfurt on Lufthansa and connecting to a United flight to the U.S. Is an hour and forty-five minutes enough time between flights


    That should be plenty of time.


  • Enough time for connection ?

    Due to Lufthansa flight changes we only have 65mins for our connection to Singapore,our incoming flight is into terminal 1 from Manchester and we depart from terminal 1 - do we have enough time to make this ?


    That should be just enough time if your flight from Manchester is on-time. you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if everything is on the same reservation.

    On 21 January I will arrive FRA from Bucharest (ROMANIA) at about 1610 P.M. and going to Lisbon at 1910 P..M, from terminal 1.Is there enough time to get from arriving gate to the departure gate, is necessary to go through customs?Thank you!


    That is plenty of time.Yes, you will go through Schengen passport control and possible security in Frankfurt, but as I said, you have plenty of time.

    Arriving from vienna austria, and catching a flight to orlando usa both using lufthansa airline with only 1 hour layover time. Can i make it to orlando flight on time? Am i changing terminals? Thanks


    Both flights will be in Terminal 1. You should have barely enough time.

    I am flying from Orlando to Frankfurt on Lufthansa and then have a separate ticket also on Lufthansa to go to Stockholm. Is 2 hours sufficient time to go through customs, immigration and recheck my back?


    It will be difficult if you can't get your two reservations joined together into one and your bags checked through to your final destination.

    we are planning to fly LHR on Luf 901 and change to Luf 454 to MCO on a Saturday. It lists a 95 minute transfer time. Is this enough time please?


    sorry that should be luf 464 to mco


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks ZAP. Guessing there in the same terminal.

    Hi, I have a 1h10m connection between flights and both will arrive/departure from Termnial 1. I guess it's enough time for going to the gate but is there any risk of my checked baggage not making it to the flight or is it enough time? Thanks.


    By the way, both flights are Lufthansa

    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.


  • Is it enough time?
    Jan 12, 2016
    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.


  • Transfer
    Jan 11, 2016
    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.
