  • AC 874 arrival gate ?, which gate to get to AC9497=LH284 ?
    May 22, 2015
    I am ignorant ot the process of gate connections at FRA. USA citizen from AC874 going on to BLQ via AC9497=LH284. I will have 1.25 hr between. Bags checked thru to BLQ, Where do I go? Passport Control ?? then which gate for AC9497=LH284 short haul to BLQ. Thanks for your help, I need it!


    Yes, in Frankfurt you will go through Schengen passport control, enter the Schengen pier of the terminal where your flight to Bologna will depart, and then likely take a bus to your plane from the departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thanks, that is the kind of good info we can't get from a travel agent. grazie mille.


  • 45 min connection time
    May 20, 2015
    Looking at booking BHX-FRA-VRN flight with lufthansa and it says a 45 min connection at FRA. I imagine this is doable as its sold as one ticket, but it seems very tight. Is this sufficient time?


    It is very tight. You will have to go through Schengen Passport control and there's a good chance both flights will uses buses to connect them to the terminal.


  • Connection between Lufthansa & Singapore Air
    May 20, 2015
    I have a Lufthansa flight from Amsterdam arriving in Frankfurt at 8.45pm & need to catch a connecting flight with Singapore Airlines at 9.55 will I have enough time as long as flight is on time.


    Yes, that should barely be enough time if your first flight is on-time and your bags are checked through to Singapore.


    Thats impossible, FRA is a nightmare


  • 55 mins connection time
    May 18, 2015
    Arrive on LH6911 at 8.25 (bus transfer) B1 - departure LH6676 9.20 probably B42 or B45. I have both flights on one ticket. Is there enough time?


    Please note that LH6911 is actually Adria flight 116 and LH6676 is actually Air Canada flight 873. This is a difficult transfer but should be possible. It is helped by not entering the Schengen Area and thus not having to go through passport control.


  • LAX to NCE w/Connection in FRA
    May 15, 2015
    I have a 70 min connection between landing at Frankfurt and taking off for Nice France. Assuming will have to clear passport control. Flights LH457 (LAX-FRA) - LH 1060(FRA-NCE). Is 70 min enough time to make the flight?


    That should be barely enough time.


    Thanks ZAP. That was what I thought as well. A simple transfer (w/o passport control) would be a stretch. Can only hope the flight lands early.


  • Connection between Terminal 2 and terminal one
    May 14, 2015
    I am reaching Frankfurt from Chennai by Srilankan air. Arrival is at Terminal 2 at 7:30Hrs.. I have to catch another flight to Vienna by Austrian Air which is scheduled to depart from Terminal 1 at 09:50 hrs. I have about 2 hrs 30 minutes. Do this time is sufficient for me to clear Shen gen passport control and Baggage claim and transfer to Terminal 1. How to reach Terminal one from Terminal 2? how long it takes. Kindly help me


    There is a people mover between terminal 1 and 2. However, the only airline that flies nonstop between Frankfurt and Chennai is Lufthansa. If your flight is nonstop it will be on Lufthansa and arrive in Terminal 1.


  • 65 min layover FRA (Stockholm-FRA-Boston)
    May 10, 2015
    Me and my sister are going from Stockholm to Boston through FRA. We have 65 minutes to transfer from the flight from Stockholm to the flight bound for Boston. Will 65 minutes be enough (we are trasveling on a Friday afternoon)? I guess we are heading from the 1A area to the 1Z area? I recently missed a connecting flight in Oslo and don't want that to happen with this upcoming flight...


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Bucharest to Lisbon through Frankfurt
    May 6, 2015
    I am flying from Bucharest to Lisbon and few day later back to Bucharest through Frankfurt. All the flights for both trips are Lufthansa. For the travel Bucharest to Lisbon, I will have a layover time of 1h 35 min on FRA and for the travel Lisbon to Bucharest a layover of 2hrs in FRA. Are they enough (considering also the Schengen area check)?


    Yes, those layovers should be sufficient.




  • 50' layover on Frankfurt
    May 4, 2015
    I need to go from Lisbon to Bucharest (both are in EU area). I found a variant in which I can fly from Lisbon to Frankfurt and from here I am having the next one to Bucharest. Both flights are Lufthansa. Are 50' enough time between the flights or is it too tight for Frankfurt airport?


    Bucharest is NOT in the Schengen Area. 50 minutes is barely enough time. You will have to go through Schengen exit passport control in Frankfurt.


    Hi, Thank you for the info. I've managed to find some alternatives - for the travel Bucharest to Lisbon, I will have a layover time of 1h 35 min on FRA and for the travel Lisbon to Bucharest a layover of 2hrs in FRA. Are they enough (considering also the Schengen area check)?


  • Transiting from United to Lufthansa at FRA
    Apr 29, 2015
    Arriving from SFO to FRA, transiting to Lufthansa for LH690. Last time I was at FRA it was a nightmare. What is fastest way to do this w/o going through multiple security checks?


    There are security checks when you go to Israel. Not much way around that. You won't be entering the Schengen Area so you won't have to go through Schengen passport control.


  • FRA- Dubai - 1hr. 45 mins layover
    Apr 28, 2015
    Dear All, I am traveling with kids to Dubai via Frankfurt. We will be traveling from Miami through American Airlines to FRA. In frankfurt, the layover period is 1hr 45 mins. My connecting flight is Emirates; I am not sure of the terminals. Is it possible to catch the Emirates flight? Please advise.....


    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? Will you have checked baggage? It helps that both American and Emirates use Terminal 2 concourse E.


    I had purchased tickets separately, checked baggage need to be transferred directly, because we didn't,t have Frankfurt visa... Thanks much


    Well, since you purchased separate tickets, American is under no obligation to transfer your baggage to Emirates. You will either have to get a Schengen Transit Visa or you may be leaving your baggage behind in Frankfurt.

    You will just go through Schengen Exit Passport control in Frankfurt. You should have enough time.

    That should be enough time if all your tickets are on one reservation.
