  • From Bus gate 1A to gate Z69
    Aug 5, 2014
    I am making the journey MAN - FRA - HKG this coming Xmas which means I will be transferring from LH947 to LH796. I noticed that LH had schedule changed the departure time of LH947 from MAN in their winter 2014 timetable from 1745 to 1800 and now 1805 resulting in just 90 minutes (i.e. 15 minutes shorter) connecting time available at FRA. With LH796 now regularly departing from gate Z69 and that LH947 normally arriving with a bus connection to bus gate 1A, is this connection going to be tight given the walk required from bus gate 1A to gate Z69 with transfer security along the way?


    90 minutes should still be enough time.


  • Is 45 mins enough time for connection (ARN-FRA-IAD)
    Oct 23, 2014
    Flt from ARN arriving 12:15; flt to IAD departing 13:10. Do I have to go through immigration, etc. OR is there separate internat'l departure? What gates do I arrive/depart?


    You will go through Schengen exit passport check and then security at your departure gate. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Hello lm - I'm in a similar situation (PRG-FRA-PHL) with a 55 minute layover. Just wondering if you made it with 45 minutes?


  • Dublin - Frankfurt - Athens 50 min layover
    Jul 28, 2014
    Hi. We are flying lufthansa from Dublin to Athens via Frankfurt and have a 50 minute layover (although the last few connections I looked at seem to have have 1hr or 1 hr 10mins). From what I can tell, the dublin flight usually gets in gate B22 or C02 and the Athens flight usually leaves from gate A58 - > A69. Is 50 minutes enough time to make that transfer and will we have to go through security? Would you recommend running, or skytrain? Thanks


  • Time Difference

    I am travelling from Bangalore to Stockholm via Frankfurt. The flight no. from Bangalore to Frankfurt is LH755 and from Frankfurt to Stockholm is LH802. The Time gap is 1 hr. 10 Mins. Could you please give me information if the time gap is sufficient to catch the flight given I might need to go through immigration and security checks. Thanks,


    It's possible but difficult as you will have to go through Schengen immigration and the gate for your Stockholm flight may require taking a bus to the aircraft.


    Your flights are listed today as arriving at T1-B, at B gates, and departing at T1-A/B, gate A. Level 3 of Terminal 1 is connected via transfer tunnel to A & B gates and the SkyLine train runs between Concourses A, B, D/E in the secured area.


  • distance between B10 to B61
    Jun 25, 2014
    im arriving at B10 and taking a connection to B61. i only have an hour without delays. how many minutes walk?


    You will have to collect your baggage after clearing immigration to clear customs. If you want to continue onto Atlanta you'll then re-check it with US Airways. If you want to go straight home, then you can just get picked up as you'll already have your bags.


    Yes all international arrivals need to go through this procedure. You can buy separate tickets for each leg of your journey. After customs clearance take your bag with you (a) checking it in at connecting airline counter for onward travel, or (b) exit terminal at CLT with bags.


    Thank you ZAP, your response was helpful.


    Thank you sujun for your response as well.

    Jun 19, 2014
    I am going to India. From DC to India via Frankfurt. I have 1 hour 45 mins lay over. Going United from DC-frankfurt and lufthansa from frankfurt to India. Would that be enough time for transit? What else can I do to make it quick from one door to next. Thanks


    Jun 14, 2014
    I am extremely worried whether I will be making the 1hr 10mins connection time - Lufthansa from Oslo to Mumbai with connection at Frankfurt. I am Indian passport holder with Schengen visa. Any advice? Is 1hr sufficient?


    Jun 13, 2014
    Travelling with two kids next Friday with LH865 and then LH456. Layovertime is 1.45 which I thought was sufficient until I started googling... Do I need to run with my kids and how many checkpoints do I need to go through? (I was really looking forward to this trip, but now I have started to worry....)

  • Traveling from US to Switzerland via Frankfurt
    Jun 13, 2014
    Hi There, I am on US Permanent Resident card and traveling from US to switzerland via Frankfurt and back via same route.I have schengen visa from swiss embassy. Can you please tell where would my date of entry and exit for schengen visa be stamped and if I need any transit visa for making this connetion in Frankfurt? Would appreciate your response. Thanks sonu


    Since Moncton does not have pre-clearance you will actually not arrive in A. You will arrive in C. You will then go through US Immigration and Customs. Then go up to go through security, then if your flight from IND is from C you just go to your gate in C, but if it is in A you take the shuttle to A. The shuttle runs frequently.

On my return, going from Bologna through Frankfurt, then back to US (California), I will only have 1 hour and 10 minutes layover in Frankfurt. How much time do I need on my outbound and returning flights during layovers in Frankfurt and what immigration, customs and security checks will there be in each location (and what will that entail?) Thank you for your assistance! I am traveling alone and just found out about my trip!

  • Layover time
    Jun 5, 2014
    I'm flying Toronto (YYZ) to Frankfurt (FRA) on Lufthansa 6789 (operated by AC) with a 2h 15m layover until my flight from Frankfurt (FRA) to Budapest (BUD) on Lufthansa 1336 (operated by Lufthansa). Is the 2h 15m layover sufficient?


    forgot to add all flts are on DL


    You will arrive in Terminal 4. You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, then re-check your baggage with Delta. Then you can go up to the departures level and through security then take Delta's shuttle bus to Terminal 2 where your ORD flight will depart. Or you can take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and go through security in T2.


  • layover time
    May 29, 2014
    Hi, I am traveling with a child from Birmingham to Johannesburg. Both flights are with Lufthansa.It will be my first time at FRA. My layover is only 1 hour 5 minutes. Is this enough time to get to my gate. I am getting really worried it won't be enough time as I've heard you have to walk a lot, plus security checks etc. Thanks for your help
