  • Enough connection time ?
    Mar 17, 2016
    I am a Canadian citizen. Flying with Lufthansa from Lisbon flight1169 arriving in Frankfurt 7:45pm. Next flight 1422 is also Lufthansa to Bucharest at 8:35 pm Do I have enough time to catch this flight? Thank you


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Are both flights on the same terminal ? There is an express lane?


    You don't need an express lane as you won't go through anything in Frankfurt as you are not entering the Schengen Area. Yes, all Lufthansa flights are in Terminal 1.

    I arrive in Frankfurt with only a one hour layover, I do not have a checked bag can I make my next flight to France?


    You're going to have to be more specific about where you're flying to Frankfurt from and what airlines you are flying.

    Connecting through FRA terminal 1 on LH codeshare with UA to LH codeshare with Aegean also Terminal. Booked one ticket. Connection time 1hr 10min. As I understand it, baggage is checked to SKG just have to go through passport control. Does passport control have an express lane for short connections? And is this enough time?


    There should be an express lane and you should have enough time.

    Flying from LAS to Rome via Frankfurt on Condor. Suppose to arrive at 10:50 in Frankfurt and catch Lufthansa flight at 12:20. From reading other posts, we should be able to make this since it's the same terminal. Does this sound correct? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. you will just have to go through Schengen Passport control in Frankfurt.


    Yes, we did have enough time to go through Shengen Passport Control and the Security line at Gate E1 (long line , but moved well). And of course, it was a rainy day, departures delayed, which helped. Thanks!


  • Travel from Krakow to Frankfurt to Houston, TX

    Traveling from Krakow to Frankfurt to Houston TX. How much time is needed for connection in Frankfurt (I will have a checked bag)?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation then I recommend 75 minutes


  • passport control in FRA?

    I am an American citizen. I am in London now and will travel from Heathrow to Leipzig with a short (50 mins) connection in Frankfurt. Will I have to go through passport control in Frankfurt? What are my chance of making the connection? (Both flights are Lufthansa so I assume it's the same terminal.) Many thanks. S.


    Yes, you will go through passport control in Frankfurt. This is a bit of a difficult connection.


  • Transfer from terminal 1 to terminal 2

    I will be arriving from Budapest at 8:05am on Lufthansa and need to get American AL flight to Charlotte (CLT) in terminal 2 at 10am. I have no checked bags. Will I gave enough time and does this require going back through security?


    I believe you can take the skyline inside security if you already have the boarding pass for your American flight.


  • Connecting from Moscow to Atlanta on Lufthansa flights
    Mar 12, 2016
    Hello! I'm flying from Moscow to Atlanta via Frankfurt. Flights are lh1451 and Lh444. I understand that connection is within same terminal, but different halls. What kind of visa/passport or security control will I need to pass as Russian citizen? Is 1:55 enough for the connection? Any recommendations how to make it smoother? Thanks a lot!


    Since you are coming from the US and not entering the Schengen area, there should be no security or passport control. You should have enough time.


    Thanks for prompt response! My travel is actually in opposite direction from Russia to US. sorry if it was not clear. Does such connection involve any security or paperwork control?


    Sorry, misread that. In Frankfurt you will go through security but not passport control.

    Hi, I am travelling with family from Bangalore to Newark (LH - 755) on March 22, 2016 via Frankfurt. Can you please let me know which terminal the arrival at Frankfurt would be at? Is it terminal 1 or 3? Thanks Bob


    Both flights will be in Terminal 1 in Frankfurt if they are on Lufthansa.




  • LAX to FRA to NCE

    I am flying into FRA from Los Angeles on April 2nd and my layover is only an hour and 15 minutes... Am I going to have to claim my bag, go through customs and then board the next plane? Any help is greatly appreciated.


    No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage if both flights are on Lufthansa. All you have to do is go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thank you!


  • 1hr 25min connection - Is it sufficient time
    Mar 9, 2016
    I am travelling from Calgary, on Air Canada AC844 and connect to Lufthansa LH756. I believe both arrive and depart from Terminal. Have never transitted through Frankfurt before. Is 1hr 25M enough. Also, do I need to redo security and passport check. Never experienced this at Heathrow where I normally transit through. Any insight would be most helpful


    I meant Terminal 1


    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area and are coming from Canada you don't have to do passport check or go through security. Just go to your departure gate.


    Thanks ZAP. Much Appreciated


  • DOH-FRA-TXL confused!?

    Hello I am travelling on the Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Frankfurt. This arrives at 6:45Am. I have a connecting Air Berlin flight from Frankfurt to Berlin (TXL) at 8:25Am. Questions: 1) Please advise on terminal information for Qatar Airways and AirBerlin. 2) In which airport do I have to undergo passport control. 3) Do i have enough time to transit and make my connecting flight.


    Qatar Airways uses Terminal 1 but Air Berlin uses Terminal 2. You will go through passport control in Frankfurt. You should have enough time to take the skyline between terminals.


    Thanks for the reply ZAP

    What terminal does American Airlines use in Frankfurt and what terminal does Lufthansa use for departures to Copenhagen ?


    American uses Terminal 2 and Lufthansa uses Terminal 1. If you are doing this connection with checked baggage you need at least 3 hours between flights.

    Hi, I am new to flying internationally, apologies in advance if I seem clueless. I will be flying solo from Prague to Frankfurt & then Frankfurt to Seattle. Booked through Condor on the same ticket, got a notice recently that my layover was shortened to 3 hours. Is this enough time to make it through security, passport control, etc...? I am planning to check one bag as well.


    Ah, and another question--How do I search which terminal I fly into and out of? The E confirmation doesn't indicate any terminal info. Thanks for any help!


    3 hours is still plenty of time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate.

    Arriving in Terminal 2 with American Airlines from USA/DFW to Frankfurt. No checked bags. 1 1/2 hours until Lufthansa flight to Dublin, Ireland, I am assuming Terminal 1. Is this do-able?


    With no checked bags I think you'd have a chance, it's by no means easy though.
