  • Monachium-Frankfurt-Atlanta
    Dec 22, 2015
    I will be flying from Monachium through Frankfurt to Atlanta, USA. All flights are operated with Lufthansa. I have 50 minutes layover in Frankfurt. Will I be able to go from domestic to international terminal and security control in 50 minutes?


    There is no "domestic" or "international" terminal at FRA. You should have just about enough time.


  • connection time 1.10 hrs from Serbia to U.S.

    Hi, I have 1 hour 10 mins layover between LH flight coming from Serbia (arriving to Term 1B) and LH flight to US (departing from Z). Will I be able to make it (traveling with toddler)? Thanks.


    That should be enough time. You will just have to go through security on the way from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Just follow signs to your departure gate.


  • Arriving Condor and connect to El Al
    Dec 14, 2015
    I'm arriving to FRA on Condor #2035 at 9:25am and will connect to El Al #358 departing at 11am. Will I make it on time and are the security lines long ??


    Were your tickets purchased on two separate reservations or one reservation? If separate reservations I don't think you have enough time.

    My family is travelling alone from Bangalore to Stuttgart via Frankfurt; they come by LH755 and land at 08:50 AM in Terminal 1 in Frankfurt; they have to catch LH128 to Stuttgart in Terminal 1 at 09:50 AM. they have just 1 hour; is this enough time ? what procedures are there before they can board the flight to Stuttgart. thanks..


    In Frankfurt they will go through Schengen passport control and security and go to their departure gate.


    thanks. Will they get to see Passport control on their way to one of the departure gates A,B or C in Terminal 1 ? or, do they need to look for the Passport contrail signage and go to that counter ?


    They will just follow signs to their departure gates, they will go through Passport control on their way.

    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Entry/Exit Delays due to Enhanced Security?
    Nov 25, 2015
    Hello, I'm going to be travelling thr FRA on Nov 27/28, and was planning to leave the airport during my 8-hour layover. However, now I'm wondering if they have increased the security screenings and if there's no longer enough time to leave? Appreciate any insights!


    That would probably still be enough time. However, there's not a whole lot worth seeing in Frankfurt in just a few hours.


    Dear ZAP, thanks for the quick reply. I'll play it by ear and see how the weather looks.


  • Fly Luf from Prague, connect to UA in Fra with 1 hr
    Nov 22, 2015
    Is this connection of 1 hour doable? Fly Luf from Prague, connect in Fra to UA to Houston with 1 hour I go thru customs?


    You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control which is a very brief process. You should have enough time.


    Thanks..Still not sure if I arrive/leave from same terminal but have been told it wad T-1.


    Yes, All Lufthansa and United flights use Terminal 1.


  • Enough time
    Oct 27, 2015
    Hello flying into FRA on Lufthansa but have separate connection ticket long layover, what exact terminal is lufthansa and does anyone know where croatia airlines flys out of..Im in same predicatment on way back landing in Fra on ADRIA airline at 825am then leaving on luftthansa at 1025 is that enough time and do I need to go through customs again?


    Lufthansa, Croatian, and Adria all use Terminal 1. You will not have to go through immigration in FRA as long as all tickets are on the same reservation because you will not be entering the Schengen Area.


    Unfortunatley they are on separate e tickets the cost was less for me...going over not a big deal because I have a long layover but on the return...kind of nervous because I was advised that since I have a separate eticket, I have to go through customs after I pick up my bag in order to check it into Lufthansa from Adria a little confused
