We are flying from Boston to Frankfurt then onto Hamburg, all on Lufthansa. We have 95 minutes connection time. On the way home we are flying from Copenhagen to Frankfurt to Boston, all on Lufthansa. Also with 95 minutes connection time. Will these layover times be long enough assuming our flights are on time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hello. I have just 1 hour between arrival from BRU in FRA and departure from FRA to Beijing. Both LH flights on the save reservation. Is this enough time and what should I do ( security, passport...) Thank you
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate.
I'm flying with Lufthansa from Toronto through Frankfurt to Barcelona; stop-over time in Frankfurt is 3:05 hr. Is this enough time? Passport control? How would baggage be handled? Thanks.
Yes, that's plenty of time. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags if both tickets are on the same reservation.
Looking to book flights from Vancouver to Rome,and one option is Vancouver->Heathrow->Frankfurt->Rome. There is only a 50 minute window in Frankfurt. Current flights seem to have Arrival in the B Concourse and Departure out of A (not sure if that is consistent). I don't quite understand the EU/Schengen rules on where we clear passport controls and security, is 50 minutes enough? Have more breathing room at Heathrow so I'm not so concerned at that Leg.
You will go through passport control in Frankfurt. That is a difficult connection.
Looking at a flight arriving from Zurich and continuing to Dallas both with Lufthansa. Connection is only 50 minutes. Is that enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from Mumbai to Frankfurt (Lufthansa) and then Frankfurt to Dallas (British). These are separate tickets so I think my checked bag needs to be collected and rechecked again. Will ~3 hours be enough or am I cutting it too close? Thanks in advance
Note that your Frankfurt to Dallas flight will be on American. That should be barely enough time.
Thank you. Yes the flight to Dallas is operated by American. What do you think is a safe layover time? I could get another expensive flight which will give me 4 hours,will that be sufficient?
Yes, 4 hours should be enough time.
We will be arriving FRA from Almaty, Kazakhstan on Sept. 1 and have about a 1 hour layover. Will we need to go through passport control again, or will we transfer to our London Heathrow bound flight directly, in the same terminal?
You will go through security, but not passport control. Yes, both flights will be in Terminal 1. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks. Is there a way to know gate location of each flight? And, how would we get mobile assistance if needed (my husband can have difficulty walking long distances quickly).
After a ticketing switch by United, we're arriving at 5:55a from CHI on United and scheduled departure 7:35a to Rome on Lufthansa. They assured me this is enough time but I've never had an international layover. Do we go through customs/immigration in Frankfurt? Is this enough time? Thank you.
You will go through passport control in Frankfurt, you don't have to do anything with your bags. You should have enough time.
Thank you for your help
Me again, easier to break into two posts. Arriving BSL-FRA on Swiss air (though purchased through LH/'operated by LH') at 7:40AM. Will likely need to check a bag since my US sized carry-ons do not meet the Swiss Air criteria. Departing DL FRA-JFK at 10:30a. Is this enough time to collect bags, check in for flight to JFK, and go through security? Seems like plenty of time but I could pack differently if needed. Thanks again :)
Yes, that should be enough time. if everything goes smoothly.
thank you x 2
Arriving JFK-FRA at 10A on DL, carry-on only. Separate booking, FRA-VCE on LH, departing at 12:25. My itinerary says FRA-VCE is terminal 1. A few questions: 1) What terminal for JFK-FRA arrival? 2) If my US size carry-on is too large for the LH flight, will LH check it at the gate? 3) I am not sure if I will be able to check in for the LH flight at JFK, if I need to check in at FRA, will this be doable airside? 3a) I am in business class FRA-VCE, could I check in at the LH lounge? Thanks very much.
You will arrive in Terminal 2. They should be able to check your carry-on at the gate if it's too big. You won't bea ble to check in for the LH flight at JFK. YOu can check in online or at the transfer desk in FRA. I do not believe flying business class on an intra-European flight gives you lounge access.
