  • 1 Hour transit - Cairo - Frankfurt - Geneva
    Oct 4, 2014
    I am arriving from Cairo and I have schengen Visa from Germany. I am heading to Geneva after 1 hour transit only. I want to know what will I do as soon as my arrival from Cairo ? Where will be the passport check stage ? Shall I head directly to Transit or to Passport control (Exit) ?


    You will go through Schengen passport control and security when you enter the departure concourse in Frankfurt. Follow signs to your departure gate.


  • Connecting from UA to LH
    Oct 3, 2014
    I have a 1 hour connection from UA arriving from the US to LH going to BLQ. Will I make it and please provide details on where to go.


    Yes, that should be enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare. You will have to go through Schengen passport control and security when you enter the departure concourse for your flight to Bologna


  • Can we make it
    Oct 2, 2014
    Arriving to Frankfurt from Budapest to gate 1-A Plus with a connecting flight from Z54 to Dulles. Only have a 45minute layover. Think we can make it?


    Frankfurt Airport has 2 main terminals T1 & T2. T1 has Piers/ Concourses B & C (with T1B, T1C gates) with a separate Satellite Pier T1A - strictly used for U.S. Arrivals on level 1 (A gates) and US departures on level 2 (Z gates). Depending on your airline, you may arrive at either at T1-B, T1C, T2D or T2E - (i.e., if arriving at T2E, your arrivals gate could be one of the E2 - E26 gates). I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS (left) & scroll down to the detailed text, paying attention to 'Transferring to another Flight/ Terminal' & 'TERMINAL DETAILS'. Yes you can make it in 45 mins.


    Thanks sunset for not answering the question at all! Like so many, I too would like to know about this terminal 1a plus bus not how to look at another website. BTW there is no where that tells you that you will land @ 5 miles from the terminal and have to take said bus to who knows where! I face the same situation tomorrow and plan to post real usable details as soon as I experience this situation! Hope a budapest made it!


    1A+ is not a gate its part of terminal 1, z54 is a gate in a+. (A+ is the long building for longhaul flights)

  • Terminal 1, gate Z to A estimate?
    Sep 14, 2014
    I download an App., but it will not tell me walking distance or estimate on time from gate Z to A, can anyone give me an approximate time how long it will take?


    15 minutes


  • DFW-FRA-PRG with 60 minute layover?
    Sep 12, 2014
    Arriving on American Airlines from Dallas at 8:30 am and need to transfer to Czech Airlines flight to Prague departing at 9:30 am. It is 60 minutes and these are two different tickets (not a single itinerary). We will only have hand luggage. We also are holding a car rental reservation to drive to Prague if we miss the flight. If there is a 60% chance or higher that we can make the connection, we will buy the Prague flight tickets and hope to make it, and if not we will drive. But if there is less than a 60% chance we'll just drive and not waste the money on plane tickets that we probably won't use. Should we buy the tickets to Prague or just forget about it and drive?


    I think it's very unlikely you could make that connection.


  • Arriving on UA from Washington DC

    Connecting to LUF for flight to Paris, which terminal will I arrive in and which terminal would I depart from?


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal 1.


  • BHX-FRA-SOF - Gate A1 to B Gates in less than 1hr!
    Aug 24, 2014
    I'll be arriving into FRA at bus Gate A1 from the UK and will have to transfer to a B Gate for my onward flight to Sofia, Bulgaria. The scheduled time gives me 55 minutes to make my connection but the Birmingham flight has been late by up to 20 minutes before now. Will I make it?


    You are a non-Schengen arrival at Satellite /Pier A - therefore you need to go through passport check, then use the tunnel connecting to Terminal 1's B gates - arriving at gate B19. (B gates are B1-63). Hurry!


  • concourse B to z

    How do I get from B to Z. Is there a train? Or do I have to just walk the distance?


    this video shows the way


  • From Bus gate 1A to gate Z69
    Aug 5, 2014
    I am making the journey MAN - FRA - HKG this coming Xmas which means I will be transferring from LH947 to LH796. I noticed that LH had schedule changed the departure time of LH947 from MAN in their winter 2014 timetable from 1745 to 1800 and now 1805 resulting in just 90 minutes (i.e. 15 minutes shorter) connecting time available at FRA. With LH796 now regularly departing from gate Z69 and that LH947 normally arriving with a bus connection to bus gate 1A, is this connection going to be tight given the walk required from bus gate 1A to gate Z69 with transfer security along the way?


    90 minutes should still be enough time.


  • Is 45 mins enough time for connection (ARN-FRA-IAD)
    Oct 23, 2014
    Flt from ARN arriving 12:15; flt to IAD departing 13:10. Do I have to go through immigration, etc. OR is there separate internat'l departure? What gates do I arrive/depart?


    You will go through Schengen exit passport check and then security at your departure gate. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Hello lm - I'm in a similar situation (PRG-FRA-PHL) with a 55 minute layover. Just wondering if you made it with 45 minutes?


  • Dublin - Frankfurt - Athens 50 min layover
    Jul 28, 2014
    Hi. We are flying lufthansa from Dublin to Athens via Frankfurt and have a 50 minute layover (although the last few connections I looked at seem to have have 1hr or 1 hr 10mins). From what I can tell, the dublin flight usually gets in gate B22 or C02 and the Athens flight usually leaves from gate A58 - > A69. Is 50 minutes enough time to make that transfer and will we have to go through security? Would you recommend running, or skytrain? Thanks


  • Time Difference
    Jul 4, 2014
    I am travelling from Bangalore to Stockholm via Frankfurt. The flight no. from Bangalore to Frankfurt is LH755 and from Frankfurt to Stockholm is LH802. The Time gap is 1 hr. 10 Mins. Could you please give me information if the time gap is sufficient to catch the flight given I might need to go through immigration and security checks. Thanks,


    It's possible but difficult as you will have to go through Schengen immigration and the gate for your Stockholm flight may require taking a bus to the aircraft.


    Your flights are listed today as arriving at T1-B, at B gates, and departing at T1-A/B, gate A. Level 3 of Terminal 1 is connected via transfer tunnel to A & B gates and the SkyLine train runs between Concourses A, B, D/E in the secured area.


  • distance between B10 to B61
    Jun 25, 2014
    im arriving at B10 and taking a connection to B61. i only have an hour without delays. how many minutes walk?


    You will have to collect your baggage after clearing immigration to clear customs. If you want to continue onto Atlanta you'll then re-check it with US Airways. If you want to go straight home, then you can just get picked up as you'll already have your bags.


    Yes all international arrivals need to go through this procedure. You can buy separate tickets for each leg of your journey. After customs clearance take your bag with you (a) checking it in at connecting airline counter for onward travel, or (b) exit terminal at CLT with bags.


    Thank you ZAP, your response was helpful.


    Thank you sujun for your response as well.


  • 1hour 45 minutes enough? for transit

    I am going to India. From DC to India via Frankfurt. I have 1 hour 45 mins lay over. Going United from DC-frankfurt and lufthansa from frankfurt to India. Would that be enough time for transit? What else can I do to make it quick from one door to next. Thanks
