    Good day, I will be flying to London on the 28/02/2013 on flight LH 573 from Johannesburg. Do I need to collect my luggage or will Lufthansa automatically transfer to London on my connecting flight

    Hi I am a 66 years old US citizen arriving from Las Vegas on Condor airline and connecting a flight to dubai with Lufthansa. Never been to FRA before. How far of a walk to get to Lufthansa gate and can I get airport crew assistant. Plz advise, I don't want to miss the second flight..

     

    I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Condor uses Concourse C, Lufthansa uses Concourses A & B, with corresponding gates. Your boarding pass and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate your flight and gate numbers. You will need go to through passport check on arrival.

     

    Better than in US - ask and everyone will suppot you ;)

     

    Thank you so much for ur reply. But do you think I have enough time?!

    hi i'm arriving in FRA from South Africa on flight LH0573 at 05:35, 13 June 2013 and have to catch a connecting flight to Dublin flight LH0978 at 10:00 on the same day, will i have to still pick claim my luggage at claims or will the airline transfer it, and will i still use the train to go to my designated gate for the flight? please help with information as i am a first time international flyer, thank you!!

     

    At Frankfurt Airport, Lufthansa uses both Piers A & B of Terminal 1. On arrival, you need to go through non-Schengen passport check. I doubt that you need to pick up your bags for security check; your bags will be automatically transferred to your next Lufthansa flight. Note: Pier A gates are now divided into left-side gates A1-42 and right-side gates A50-69; (note: A gates are on lower level; Z gates are on upper level. Pier B, gates B1-B63: a transfer tunnel near B19 connects to A & Z gates;

    Arriving on UA119 2/13/2013 at 9:00 AM Need to transfer to LH1298 to Istanbul at 12:55PM. Do we have to get luggage or will luggage be transfered to Lufthansa Airlines. Do we have to go to customs?

     

    At FRA, Lufthansa (using A & B gates of Terminal 1) & United (using B gates of T1) belong to the Star Alliance - your bags will be transferred to your connecting flight. NOTE: U.S. Arrivals are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only; (US departures use the Z gates). If you need to transfer inside Terminal between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. An escalator from lower level A gates connects to upper level Z gates.

    Hi, I'm arriving to FRA Gate BSO and will connect a second flight at Z54. How do I go there? Many thaks fo a answer! /CH

     

    Before departure to FRA inquire from your first airline if they transfer your bags to the second airline - if not, you would have to claim your bag on arrival at FRA & re-check it in with your connecting airline. Also, if you do not yet have a boarding card for your connecting flight, you can obtain one at the gate or at the Transfer Desk in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. U.S. Arrivals are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only ; US departures use the Z gates. (Z gates are part of Pier A, but are on thee upper level. Head towards gates Z50-69). If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1 between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. An escalator from lower level A gates connects to upper level Z gates.

    I am arriving from Chennai India by LH759 ( 0.750hrs arrival frankfurt time) and need to catch LH 5290 at 10.45 a Frankfurt time. Will I have sufficient time? Do I need to recheckin my baggage? Do I need to go through immigaration?

     

    1. Lufthansa uses Concourses A & B with corresponding gates. On arrival at Frankfurt you need to go through passport check and may have to pick up your bag, go through customs clearance, & re-check-in your bag where indicated. The overhead screens on arrival will indicate your connecting flight number and gate. Pier A gates are now divided into left-side gates A1-42 and right-side gates A50-69; (note: A gates are on lower level; Z gates are on upper level. Pier B, gates B1-B63: a transfer tunnel near B19 connects to A & Z gates; the SkyLine train near B-8 connects to E & D gates of Terminal 2. Pier Z (on upper level of Pier A) is divided into gates Z11-25 (left) and Z50-69 (right) - accessible from the Tunnel connecting A, Z & B. You have plenty of time to eat or shop. NOTE. if continuing your flight to the US, you would have to go through US immigration/customs clearance procedure on arrival.

     

  • 10 hours connection time

    I arrive at 9:45 am from SFO with United first class. I have almost 10 hours connection time. What are my options to spend that much time? in airport or out? Thanks

     

    1. I suggest you pick up some brochures about the City of Frankfurt at the Information Booths in either Terminal and take the train (at Terminal 1) into the City. Frankfurt has many interesting things to see and its nightlife, hotels and restaurants can meet every taste and budget. 2. For detailed Frankfurt information open frankfurt.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=stadtfrankfurt_eval01.c.124836.en 3. For Frankfurt Airport details, open www.ifly.com/fra, click on "Airport Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the text. Take a Tour Around the Airport - Experience the fascinating world of flight! More gigantic than the largest museum, more thrilling than the most suspenseful action film, a treat for young and old! Welcome to one of the world's most important airports.

    arriving in fra z66 gate only have 45 mins to get to b27 gate do i need to go thru passport control and how do i get to b gate?

     

    1. You arrive & depart from Terminal 1 of FRA - U.S. Arrivals are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only; If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1 between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates, on upper/lower levels, (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. (To connect from level 1 baggage claim A, B & C to E & D, use the shuttle bus outside.) No time to waist!

    I am arriving from Ottawa at 6;45 and have a connecting flight to Rome at 7:35. Will there be those golf carts around to help me get to my gate on time?

     

    That depends on if your incoming Airline to FRA will transfer your bags to your connecting flight; if not, you would have to take your bags & check them in with your next connecting airline. Note: (a) If you do not yet have a boarding card for your connecting flight, you can obtain one at the gate or at the Transfer Desk in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. 2. U.S. Arrivals are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only. 3. If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1, between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. An escalator from lower level A gates connects to upper level Z gates. 4. If you need to transfer between the two terminals, use the free SkyLine train which connects - inside the secured area - A & B gates & stops between D & E gates, and comes around every two minutes. To get from level 1 baggage claim A, B & C, to E & D, use the shuttle bus outside. 4. Carts are free at the inspection areas; and available inside & outside of baggage claim level. You have no time to waste!

    Hi, we will be arriving in FRA from Canada and have a connecting flight to Athens on Lufthansa. The time between flights is only 1 hour and 55 minutes. Will that be enough time to clear passport control and not miss our flight?

    What is the normal/average travel time taking the tunnel from Gate A to Gate B in Terminal 1. At what Gate A number is access to the tunnel, which ends I believe at B19.

    arr at 8:00 connecting flt at 8:55 is there enough time?

     

    At FRA you will arrive at Area A of Terminal 1 (for members of the Star Alliance, incl. Lufthansa) for passport control & customs clearance; if you continue your flight on Lufthansa it will either use Pier A or Pier B gates of the same terminal (a tunnel connects between the A, Z & B gates and the SkyLine train near gate B-8 connects to E & D gates of Terminal 2 & runs every 2 mins. T2 serves mainly non-Star Alliance airlines. Your time is tight, but should suffice.

     

  • Making Our Connection

    We are arriving from SFO around 11:20 am at 1A Term 1 Hall A then leaving for Venice around 13:20 from 1 Hall AB 260-338 Gate A. First time out of the USA via airplane. How far of a walk do we have to make our connection? Do we need to clear customs? Thank you to everyone in advance for your help

     

    On arrival at Frankfurt Airport, which is well marked & easy to navigate, all arriving U.S. flights are handled at Area A; after customs clearance, you can take the tunnel to the your connecting B gates, arriving near gate B19 (B gates are B1-63). You have plenty of time.

    Arriving on Nov 15th on Air Canada AC876 (11:45) Departing on Lufthansa LH756 at 13:10. Arrive at Terminal 1C. Where would the flight to Mumbai likely depart from? Will we have to hurry?

     

    You may arrive at either at either 1C or 1A (the 1A extension has just been completed and soon (or already) will handle all incoming US flights at area A. Lufthansa uses both Piers A & B of Terminal 1. If you need to change over from A to B you can use the tunnel; at C gates use the directional signs. Your time is adequate.

     

    Thanks for the info....
