    Please note that both flights will be operated by Lufthansa. That should be enough time.

    Hello, I am a Singaporean citizen travelling from BUD to FRA and then on to LHR again in July. I have exactly 3 hrs 20 mins in between flights. The flights are made on separate reservations. My questions are: 1. Will I have enough time to clear security, 2. Collect my bags in Terminal 1, 3. Check them in again at Terminal 2, 4. And arrive at the gate before departure time? Thank you so much for any advice.


    Yes, that should be enough time to do what you need to do.


    Many thanks Zap! Much appreciated. Do you have any information on average times needed to clear security and get bags at carousel? I do not need a Schengen visa to clear immigrations and Budapest is part of the EU so I'm guessing only to clear security should not take too much time? Thanks for any insight provided :)


    You should be at the Terminal 2 check in desk within an hour of arriving in FRA.


  • 60 Minute Transfer

    I will be travelling from Dublin to Frankfurt, with 60 minutes to catch my flight to Sao Paulo, which I see from the website will be departing from Concourse C, do I have enough time and will I have to pass through Passport control (I have an EU passport) and security again?


    Apologies, to clarify, I'm travelling with Lufthansa all the way to Frankfurt and Sao Paulo too


    No, you will not have to go through passport control or security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Indian citizen traveling to Seattle from Bangalore,India via Frankfurt On United flight.layover time 2 hours. Do I have to go through passport control and security check.which is the terminal?


    Both flights are in Terminal 1. Since you are presumably holding a US Visitor visa or better, then you do not need an airport transit visa for this transfer. Note that both of your flights will be operated by Lufthansa. You will go through security but not passport control in Frankfurt.


    Thank u zap

    I can't answer this question unless you post your citizenship, permanent residency and where you are going (and presumably hold a visa for).

    I arrive in Frankfurt International airport on June 6 at 10:30 am from Palma on Condor airlines. Will I have enough time to make my connection to Lufthansa flight to Newark at 1:20 pm? Are they in the same terminal?


    That should be plenty of time. Yes they are in the same terminal.


  • Enough connection time ?

    I am a Canadian citizen. Flying with Lufthansa from Lisbon flight1169 arriving in Frankfurt 7:45pm. Next flight 1422 is also Lufthansa to Bucharest at 8:35 pm Do I have enough time to catch this flight? Thank you


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Are both flights on the same terminal ? There is an express lane?


    You don't need an express lane as you won't go through anything in Frankfurt as you are not entering the Schengen Area. Yes, all Lufthansa flights are in Terminal 1.

    I arrive in Frankfurt with only a one hour layover, I do not have a checked bag can I make my next flight to France?


    You're going to have to be more specific about where you're flying to Frankfurt from and what airlines you are flying.

    Connecting through FRA terminal 1 on LH codeshare with UA to LH codeshare with Aegean also Terminal. Booked one ticket. Connection time 1hr 10min. As I understand it, baggage is checked to SKG just have to go through passport control. Does passport control have an express lane for short connections? And is this enough time?


    There should be an express lane and you should have enough time.

    Flying from LAS to Rome via Frankfurt on Condor. Suppose to arrive at 10:50 in Frankfurt and catch Lufthansa flight at 12:20. From reading other posts, we should be able to make this since it's the same terminal. Does this sound correct? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. you will just have to go through Schengen Passport control in Frankfurt.


    Yes, we did have enough time to go through Shengen Passport Control and the Security line at Gate E1 (long line , but moved well). And of course, it was a rainy day, departures delayed, which helped. Thanks!

    I am an American citizen. I am in London now and will travel from Heathrow to Leipzig with a short (50 mins) connection in Frankfurt. Will I have to go through passport control in Frankfurt? What are my chance of making the connection? (Both flights are Lufthansa so I assume it's the same terminal.) Many thanks. S.


    Yes, you will go through passport control in Frankfurt. This is a bit of a difficult connection.


  • Transfer from terminal 1 to terminal 2

    I will be arriving from Budapest at 8:05am on Lufthansa and need to get American AL flight to Charlotte (CLT) in terminal 2 at 10am. I have no checked bags. Will I gave enough time and does this require going back through security?


    I believe you can take the skyline inside security if you already have the boarding pass for your American flight.


  • Connecting from Moscow to Atlanta on Lufthansa flights
    Mar 12, 2016
    Hello! I'm flying from Moscow to Atlanta via Frankfurt. Flights are lh1451 and Lh444. I understand that connection is within same terminal, but different halls. What kind of visa/passport or security control will I need to pass as Russian citizen? Is 1:55 enough for the connection? Any recommendations how to make it smoother? Thanks a lot!


    Since you are coming from the US and not entering the Schengen area, there should be no security or passport control. You should have enough time.


    Thanks for prompt response! My travel is actually in opposite direction from Russia to US. sorry if it was not clear. Does such connection involve any security or paperwork control?


    Sorry, misread that. In Frankfurt you will go through security but not passport control.
