  • To get from bus gate 1A to B gate
    Apr 9, 2013
    1
    Arriving on LH non-Schengen bus gate 1A. Connecting flight out of B gates, also non-Schengen. Is tunnel the best way or Sky Line? Thanks!

     

    Seems the tunnel is a better bet.

    I'm flying from WARSAW to USA via FRANKFURT. The flight from Warsaw to Frankfurt is via Lufthansa operated by LOT Polish Airlines. Do the flights on LOT Polish airlines unload on the runway, so that the passengers have to take buses into the terminal? I will have a 1:10 hr layover, and I am not sure if this will be enough time.

    My group of 40 is arriving on flight LH 439 from Dallas and connecting to LH 686 to Tel Aviv with only an hour time. Can you tell me the terminal and gate #'s of each so I can look on a map and estimate the distance between gates?

     

    The exact gates won't be known until the day of departure. You will have to hope that your Dallas flight is early. Both flights will be in the non-Schengen part of Terminal 1. This is a decent guide to connecting at FRA - http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/miles-more-lufthansa-austrian-swiss-other-partners/982019-beginners-guide-connecting-fra-fra-connection-thread.html It's simple advice - "when in doubt, follow the signs"

    I will be arriving by LH-419 from IAD (USA) at 7:40 a.m. Terminal I A and connecting to LH 758 (to Chennia - MAA - India) which departs at 9:55 a.m. from Terminal I AB. Where is Terminal I AB. Do I go up by elevators and catch the skyline to Terminal B please? Thanks in advance.

     

    All of your flights will be in Terminal 1 (there are no Terminal A/B/etc.) You do not have to take the skyline.

  • delay in FRA-where to pick up train

    We have a long delay and I would like to go into Frankfurt and use the City Tour Hop on Hop off Bus. Where do I pick up the train (which Train?) and where to get off for St. Paul Cathedral? Other suggestions are welcome, not interested in staying at the airport . Thank you!

     

    At Frankfurt Airport, Info & tickets for local transport are available at RMV Mobility Center located at DB TravelCenter of Terminal 1, Concourse B, Level 0; ticket machines are on the same level. For schedules & fares visit rmv.de. On arrival I suggest you go to the Visitor Information counter to get brochures and directions.

  • Flight connection with Condor Airlines

    I bought a flight from Milan to Anchorage that includes a transfer in Frankfurt (1 h. 40 m. stopover) I don't have to collect my luggage, but I heard from other travellers I won't get in Milan my boarding pass for the second leg of my flight (Frankfurt-Anchorage). Could someone let me know what I have to go or to do in Frankfurt airport? Have I to exit from the security aerea? Is the time connection enough? Thank you in advance for your help! Patrizia

     

    If you bought one ticket for both legs of your journey, you should not need another boarding pass at Frankfurt. You simply transfer to your connecting Concourse /gate. Condor uses Concourse C. As I don't know which airline you arrive at, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text, including transfers.

     

  • Transfer time

    We arrive at FRA on an Air Canada flight from Toronto at 7:00 am and leave on a Lufthansa City Line flight for Florence at 7:55 am. Can anyone tell me where we arrive vs. where we leave and the best way to make this connection?

     

    At FRA both airlines use Terminal 1; AC uses Concourse B, LH uses Concourse A. Level 3 of T1 is the Pier /Concourse level with Piers/ Concourses A, B & Z, connected via transfer tunnel. The SkyLine train also runs between Concourses A & B in the secured area. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks very much for the help.

     

  • Skyline or transfer tunnel?
    Feb 7, 2013

    We have a leisurely (2:45) upcoming connection at FRA. Arriving from US on Pier A (Z" level), transferring to a Schengen flight in Pier B. After we clear passport control, I suspect we'll want to stay in "A" as long as possible to take advantage of newer shops and services. What is the most efficient transfer to B concourse? Train or tunnel? I want to avoid waiting in a second security line, if possible. How long should we allow to transfer between Piers?

     

    I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Good day, I will be flying to London on the 28/02/2013 on flight LH 573 from Johannesburg. Do I need to collect my luggage or will Lufthansa automatically transfer to London on my connecting flight

    Hi I am a 66 years old US citizen arriving from Las Vegas on Condor airline and connecting a flight to dubai with Lufthansa. Never been to FRA before. How far of a walk to get to Lufthansa gate and can I get airport crew assistant. Plz advise, I don't want to miss the second flight..

     

    I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Condor uses Concourse C, Lufthansa uses Concourses A & B, with corresponding gates. Your boarding pass and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate your flight and gate numbers. You will need go to through passport check on arrival.

     

    Better than in US - ask and everyone will suppot you ;)

     

    Thank you so much for ur reply. But do you think I have enough time?!

    hi i'm arriving in FRA from South Africa on flight LH0573 at 05:35, 13 June 2013 and have to catch a connecting flight to Dublin flight LH0978 at 10:00 on the same day, will i have to still pick claim my luggage at claims or will the airline transfer it, and will i still use the train to go to my designated gate for the flight? please help with information as i am a first time international flyer, thank you!!

     

    At Frankfurt Airport, Lufthansa uses both Piers A & B of Terminal 1. On arrival, you need to go through non-Schengen passport check. I doubt that you need to pick up your bags for security check; your bags will be automatically transferred to your next Lufthansa flight. Note: Pier A gates are now divided into left-side gates A1-42 and right-side gates A50-69; (note: A gates are on lower level; Z gates are on upper level. Pier B, gates B1-B63: a transfer tunnel near B19 connects to A & Z gates;

    Arriving on UA119 2/13/2013 at 9:00 AM Need to transfer to LH1298 to Istanbul at 12:55PM. Do we have to get luggage or will luggage be transfered to Lufthansa Airlines. Do we have to go to customs?

     

    At FRA, Lufthansa (using A & B gates of Terminal 1) & United (using B gates of T1) belong to the Star Alliance - your bags will be transferred to your connecting flight. NOTE: U.S. Arrivals are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only; (US departures use the Z gates). If you need to transfer inside Terminal between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. An escalator from lower level A gates connects to upper level Z gates.

    Hi, I'm arriving to FRA Gate BSO and will connect a second flight at Z54. How do I go there? Many thaks fo a answer! /CH

     

    Before departure to FRA inquire from your first airline if they transfer your bags to the second airline - if not, you would have to claim your bag on arrival at FRA & re-check it in with your connecting airline. Also, if you do not yet have a boarding card for your connecting flight, you can obtain one at the gate or at the Transfer Desk in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. U.S. Arrivals are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only ; US departures use the Z gates. (Z gates are part of Pier A, but are on thee upper level. Head towards gates Z50-69). If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1 between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. An escalator from lower level A gates connects to upper level Z gates.
