  • Rechecking baggage in transit required?
    Aug 16, 2015
    I'm flying to FRA from BLR, then FRA to LAX, with 1 hour's time in between. Lufthansa both times. Will my baggage be checked through or will I need to recheck at FRA?


    You will not have to do anything with your baggage in Frankfurt, just go through security.

    Lufthansa(AC9569) from BUD to FRA, and Air Canada from FRA to YYZ (AC877), both in terminal 1 Do we go through Pasport Exit control then to the gate the connection is tight, what are our chances of making it?


    Since you didn't post the arrival and departure times of your flights I can't tell you if you'll have enough time. You have the procedure correct.


    AC9569 arrives in FRA at 16:10, AC877 leaves at 17:15, thank you for the help!


    AC9569 arrives in FRA at 16:10, AC877 leaves at 17:15, thank you for the help! I posted this info in the reply to your comment by mistake!


    That should be barely enough time.


  • Connecting flight
    Aug 10, 2015
    My son, a US citizen, will be departing on Condor from Seattle to Frankfurt where he picks up a connecting flight on Lufthansa to Rome. These two legs of the journey were booked on one itinerary. He has just under 2 hours layover. What kind of security process will he and or his checked bag need to go through in Frankfurt? Will one and three quarters of an hour be sufficient?


    He will go through Schengen passport control. That's it. He should have enough time.


  • 1hr 10 min transfer

    Hi, I'll be flying from Barecelona to FRA, and catch the next flight to Hongkong in just 1hr and 10min. Is that enough time?


    forgot to add that both are LH flights


    It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare. You will have to go through schengen exit passport control.

    Hey, I'm flying from PRG to ABZ via FRA (both flights with Lufthansa) but only have 45 minutes to change flights. Is this doable?


    That will be very difficult. Your gates will be reasonably close to each other but they will both likely be bus gates and you will have to go through Schengen exit passport control in between.


  • Is an hour enough?
    Aug 6, 2015
    Yet another question about how much time is enough... We'll be flying from San Francisco to Frankfurt, and then have an hour and five minutes to catch a flight to Rome. It's all part of one ticket, on Lufthansa. Is that enough time? Thanks!


    It should be barely enough time. Just follow signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen passport control on the way.

    Hello we are flying from Birmingham to Singapore with a 90min connection.... (All flights with LH) is this sufficient ? Also, do we need to pass through immigration ? Many thanks.


    Should be enough time. Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control/immigration.


  • ATL -> FRA -> SPU
    Aug 4, 2015
    Flying from ATL -> FRA on Delta (Air France) -> SPU (Croatia Air). Will we have to go through passport control and security in FRA?


    Were your tickets purchased together or separately? Do you have checked bags?


    They were purchased together. We are not planning to check bags unless they truely enforce the carry-on baggage weight rules.


    Then you should be able to take the SkyLine to your departure area and get your boarding passes from the Croatian Air transfer desk.


  • 45min transfer
    Jul 26, 2015
    I fly from AMS to LHR via FRA. I have only 45min to make my connection. Is this possible?


    It's hard. What airline are you on?


    Both flights are with Lufthansa


    Yep, difficult, but not impossible. You will have to go through Schengen Exit passport control but that's a quick process.


  • 1hr 30mins between flights
    Jul 22, 2015
    Flying from SFO to FRA with connecting flight to Prague--all on Lufthansa--it shows same terminal-can we walk it or need sky train?


    It depends on your gates. Just take the recommended route, probably walking.


  • Luftansa connection time
    Jul 22, 2015
    We are booked on Luftansa from St. Petersburg Russia to Frankfurt with transfer to Luftansa from Frankfurt to Chicago, USA. We only have 1 hour for the connection and are not familiar with the airport. Do we need to take a tram/bus to our connecting gate? Also do we need to go through full passport control?


    Both flights will be in the same terminal, but your flight from St. Petersburg may use a bus gate. You will not have to go through passport control as you will not be entering the Schengen Area.


  • 1HR 30MIN Layover in FRA to US
    Jul 22, 2015
    I am flying into FRA from Madrid and transferring to a flight to Boston, USA. Do I need to go through both security and passport check or just the passport check? And will 1.5 hrs be enough time to make the connection comfortably? I have never been to FRA before so the size of the airport seems very daunting...


    YOu will only have to go through Schengen exit passport control. You should have enough time.


  • Connection in Frankfurt
    Jul 20, 2015
    We will be traveling on Luftfansa from Rome with a connecting flight in Frankfurt than on to Detroit. Is one hour twenty minutes enough time? Will we go though passport control? Is passport control very far?


    That should be enough time. You will just go through Schengen exit passport control which is a very quick process.


  • 1HR Layover to get to Budapest from USA
    Jul 20, 2015
    Hello! My travel agency booked a flight with only an hour layover to connect from Frankfurt to Budapest. Lufthansa has already warned me it's not doable, but I'm not sure I have any options left. Will I have to leave the terminal to do security? Both of my flights are on Lufthansa. Is there any hope?


    It is doable, it's just very difficult. No you do not have to leave the terminal or go through security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, going through schengen passport control on the way.


  • help do I have enough time
    Jul 20, 2015
    i will be travellng from CDG to FRA with a return to the US. Is one hour connection enough or do I need 2 hours? I will be in Terminal A , transferring from Lufthansa yo United HELP UAL could not answer. I wil lbe ni TerminaL 1 transferring from Lufthansa from CDG to FRA and then on to Housto on United. I am concerned because I go from domestic to international.


    This should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through schengen exit passport control.
