    I am flying from iAd on united airlines to Frankfurt and my connecting flight to Delhi is Lufthansa, layover time is one hour and thirty five minutes.Is it sufficient.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you very much.

     

    I'm flying from IAD to Frankfurt on United and then on to Copenhagen on Lufthansa. My flight is delayed and I only have 45 minutes to make the connection. Is this enough time? Thank you

    I am flying from Philadelphia on American Airlines into Frankfurt. The flight lands at 8:30 am. I am departing FRA to Hanover on Lufthansa at 9:50 am. Is this enough time between flights? Will I have to claim my luggage and then re-check in with Lufthansa? The flights are on separate tickets.

     

    That is not realistically enough time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags and then transfer them between terminals yourself.

    Traveling Atl to FRA on Delta. Traveling FRA to Split on Croatia Airlines. Layover is 2.5hrs. What is the transfer procedure in FRA? What is the minimum time I need for the transfer?

     

    You will have to go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, Take the skyline or shuttle to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Croatian, and go through security and Schengen Exit passport control.

     

  • From Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 plus luggage check in

    Hello. I already have boarding passes from Helsinki to Fra (Terminal 2) with Finnair. Do I have to collect my luggage and go to Terminal 1 for Frankfurt- Montego Bay. I have to check in my luggage. I have about 2 hours for this. is it enough time for this? When I have my luggage in Terminal 2- what is the best way to go to Terminal 1?

     

    I think with checked luggage you can still take the Skyline to Terminal 1. 2 Hours is pretty difficult.

     

    Thanks! But i need to check my luggage in at terminal 1. So can i still take a skytrain or you meant security check?

     

    Yes, there is a skyline car that runs outside security.

    Arrive on Lufthansia from Houston to Frankfurt at 8:40. Flight to Nuremberg at 10:00. Will I have enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate.

    Coming into FRA on a UA flight from EWR transfer to LH flight to Aberdeen. The reverse on the return. Am I correct that 2 hours will be plenty of time?

     

    yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

    And since US to UK with transfer in FRA, US passport,II will just have passport control in both directions?

     

    Actually you won't have passport control, since you aren't entering the Schengen Area. Just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Aberdeen flight will probably be a bus gate.

    Hi, I am flying from Washington DC (IAD) to Frankfurt on United UA989 and then on to Vienna (VIE) on Lufthansa with a 1hr 40min connection time. Will this be enough time? Will my luggage automatically transfer? Do I need to change terminals?

     

    Yes, your bags will be transferred automatically and both flights will be in Terminal 1. You should have enough time. You just have to go through passport control in Frankfurt.

     

    Thank you!

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt. Just go through security and to your departure gate.

    I am flying from Paris to Calgary Canada through Frankfurt with a 1 hour and 10 minute transfer time. Is that enough and what do I need to do? Will my luggage be transferred for me as well?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation on Lufthansa/Air Canada you just have to go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi. We are flying from Orlando to Frankfurt with United Airlines and then on to London Heathrow, again with UA, with a 60 min layover. Will this be enough time? Will hold luggage automatically transfer? Will we need to change terminals/go through security and passport control again?

     

    United does not fly from Orlando to Frankfurt or Frankfurt to London. Both flights will be on Lufthansa. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. Both flights will be in the same terminal. You should have enough time.

     

    Yes joint flights UA + Lufthansa. Very useful info. Thanks

     

    Why would you have to go through passport control if you're flying on to a non-Schengen country?

    Hi, we are travelling from Manchester UK to Rome with layover in Frankfurt. We have 90minutes going and 60minutes on return for transfers. Is this enough? We are only taking hand luggage. Also, as we have EU passports do we just go straight to departure gate?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. Both ways you will have to go through passport control.

    You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1. Are your flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
