  • 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
    Jan 10, 2016
    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
    Jan 10, 2016
    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.


  • Connection time at Frankfurt airport
    Jan 10, 2016
    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 am flying from Calgary to Frankfurt via Chicago International Airport, I have only 75 mins layover in Chicago, do I have enough time to make the flight UA907 from Chicago to Frankfurt?

  • Connecting Flight
    Jan 1, 2015
    I have to connect flight from Bangkok to Prague in Frankfurt (FRA). My flight from Bangkok is Thai Airways (TG) arriving FRA at 6:00. The flight to Prague is Czech Airlines (CSA) Departing FRA at 9:30. Do I have enough time? What do I need to check in my bag again? Thank you


    That should be enough time. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Frankfurt and recheck them with CSA . If both tickets are on the same reservation then you will not have to claim your bags.


  • 1 hour between FRA to DFW connecting flight
    Dec 29, 2015
    I'm flying from Munich to Frankfurt and have an hour between my landing and connecting flight to Dallas (DFW). Is that enough time and will my luggage go straight through to DFW from Munich?


    Yes, if both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will go straight through and all you have to do in FRA is go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate.

    Yes, you should not have to go through Passport control. You may have to go through security though.

    No. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You will just go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
