    Yes, that's plenty of time. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags if both tickets are on the same reservation.


  • Vancouer->Heathrow->Frankfurt->Rome
    Aug 18, 2016
    Looking to book flights from Vancouver to Rome,and one option is Vancouver->Heathrow->Frankfurt->Rome. There is only a 50 minute window in Frankfurt. Current flights seem to have Arrival in the B Concourse and Departure out of A (not sure if that is consistent). I don't quite understand the EU/Schengen rules on where we clear passport controls and security, is 50 minutes enough? Have more breathing room at Heathrow so I'm not so concerned at that Leg.


    You will go through passport control in Frankfurt. That is a difficult connection.

    Looking at a flight arriving from Zurich and continuing to Dallas both with Lufthansa. Connection is only 50 minutes. Is that enough time?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
