    Hello, I have 70 minutes, arriving on LH from JFK, need to make a flight to Zurich but my final destination is a non-schengen (Nairobi) will I have enough time? Do I need to clear immigration/security?


    In Frankfurt you will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport control because you are first flying to another airport in the Schengen Area. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I have a flight from Lisbon on TAP to Frankfurt with a 1 hour connection to Dubrovnik on Croatia airline. Is this doable or should I search for a longer connection?


    That is possible if both flights are on the same reservation.


  • AA to AB connection, 1 hr 40 mins
    Feb 10, 2017
    Original sked had a nice 2+ hr connection time but that has been reduced to 1:40, arriving at 09:10 and departing at 10:50. Both flights should be in T2, I think, but I will be arriving from non-Schengen and transferring to a (domestic) Schengen flight. (DFW-FRA-TXL) I feel like this is enough time but not much to spare. The glitch (other than a late transatlantic arrival) would be if AA cannot give me my AB BP when I check in at DFW. Any advice on transiting efficiently? NB, I will be traveling with some companions, a couple of whom are older and won'd be able to hustle like I can.


    AA should be able to issue both boarding passes. You should have enough time.


    God willing. Occasionally they can't, for whatever reason!

    We have a connection time of 60 min, flying LH on both flights. We arrive from LAX and connect going to ZAB is this enough time? And r we in the same terminal? Flight is in September thanks!


    That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Arriving from Belgrade and flying on to Dublin
    Feb 10, 2017
    Never been to Frankfurt Airport. Have return flight for 2 people from dublin to Belgrade in March transferring in Frankfurt. We have 2 hours for connection outgoing. But on the return flight from Belgrade we land in Frankfurt at 15.15 and our flight to Dublin is at 16.10. Is this enough time for connection? All flights say T1 but dont know gates yet and flights are all booked with Lufthansa.


    It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • 1 hour transit time from NZ

    I will be arriving at 11am on a Monday on Lufthansa from San Francisco...I then depart an hour later on Scandinavian is this this stage I will have completed 25 hours flying having originated from New Zealand (home)


    It's possible but it doesn't leave much time to spare.


    Happy to not have a spare time just want to know I can get next flight :-)


    Will I need to go through any security or passport controls?


    Will the 2 flights be from the same terminal?


  • Worried about connecting flight
    Feb 10, 2017
    In march I'm flying from Manchester to Toronto via Frankfurt. I'm apprehensive as I've never caught a connecting flight so I'd like to know a few things to put my mind at ease. I'm flying with Lufthansa then Air Canada. 1. Will I need to recheck baggage? 2. Will I need to go through security/check-in again? 3. Will the arrival and departure gate be in the same terminal?


    No, you don't need to do anything with your bags, you don't have to go through security, and both flights will be in Terminal 1.

    Yes, you just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.


  • 50 minute connection with a baby LHR>FRA>BCN

    Traveling Lufthansa and have a 50 minute connection in Frankfurt with my 9 month old by myself. Is this enough time?


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you! Do I have to go through passport screening or do I just go straight to my gate?


    Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport Control.

    Will be arriving UA from Washington DC with a 1hr 50 min layover to the connecting Adria flight to Ljubljana. Plan on carryon luggage only. Connection procedure? and is this enough time?


    You will go through Schengen Entry passport control, then to the Adria transfer desk if you don't already have your boarding pass, and then to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I´m traveling from BKK to Vienna with a stopover 3 hours in Vie. before flying to Frankfurt. There i have 1 hour 25 minutes to next flight to Keflavik. Is that enough time? All flights are Lufthansa and I´m a Schengen resident. The flights are booked in 1 ticket. Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that your flight from Bangkok to Vienna will be operated by Austrian Airlines.

    Hello! I am travelling from DFW to CPH, via FRA. Our connection is 1hr 20 minutes, and all of our flights are LH. When we arrive to FRA, what exactly do we do? Do we have to claim our bags and recheck them, is our connection enough time? Thank you!


    All you have to do is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Hi, Ill b traveling with a toddler (less than 2), and my flight will land at 7:10 and next flight will leave at 10:00..will that be enough time? I'll just need to change his diaper on the layover and then go straight to gate.

  • 70 mins transit time in FRA. Is that enough?
    Jan 20, 2017
    I'm flying from BLR to FRA via Lufthansa arriving at 8:50 am. I have a connecting flight to Dallas at 10 am via Lufthansa. This gives me a transit time of 70 mins only. Will there be good enough time for my connecting flight to Dallas, USA? Thanks

  • United Airline but different carriers change over on Frankfurt
    Jan 20, 2017
    I am travelling from London on a United ticket on flight UA 9232 but by Lufthansa carrier to Frankfurt on 12 May 17. I have to catch the connecting United Airlines flight to Chicago UA 906 the dame day. The difference between these two flights arrival and departure is one hour and 30 minutes. Can someone clarify whether is it possible for me to check in my baggage at London itself and collect it at Chicago ? And is the time of just one and half hour enough to change gates at Frankfurt ? In essence; whether United Airlines operating through another airline -Lufthansa in this case would provide me the facility of a through check in at London and I would not be burdened to collect and re-check in my bags at Frankfurt.


    Yes, you do not have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Many thanks made my day !
