    I am extremely worried whether I will be making the 1hr 10mins connection time - Lufthansa from Oslo to Mumbai with connection at Frankfurt. I am Indian passport holder with Schengen visa. Any advice? Is 1hr sufficient?

    Travelling with two kids next Friday with LH865 and then LH456. Layovertime is 1.45 which I thought was sufficient until I started googling... Do I need to run with my kids and how many checkpoints do I need to go through? (I was really looking forward to this trip, but now I have started to worry....)


  • Enough time
    Oct 23, 2014
    US citizen traveling from Prague to Frankfort on Lufthansa flight connecting to Lufthansa flight to Washington DC with only 45 minute layover. Is that enough 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?


  • Traveling from US to Switzerland via Frankfurt
    Jun 13, 2014
    Hi There, I am on US Permanent Resident card and traveling from US to switzerland via Frankfurt and back via same route.I have schengen visa from swiss embassy. Can you please tell where would my date of entry and exit for schengen visa be stamped and if I need any transit visa for making this connetion in Frankfurt? Would appreciate your response. Thanks sonu


    Since Moncton does not have pre-clearance you will actually not arrive in A. You will arrive in C. You will then go through US Immigration and Customs. Then go up to go through security, then if your flight from IND is from C you just go to your gate in C, but if it is in A you take the shuttle to A. The shuttle runs frequently.


  • Need info re: flight from US through Frankfurt to Italy in June 2014
    Jun 3, 2014
    Hello! I am wondering if I have planned enough time for my travel FROM the US (California) to Frankfurt to Bologna Italy in June. I have only one hour and twenty minutes layover in Fankfurt before catchng the flight to Bologna. On my return, going from Bologna through Frankfurt, then back to US (California), I will only have 1 hour and 10 minutes layover in Frankfurt. How much time do I need on my outbound and returning flights during layovers in Frankfurt and what immigration, customs and security checks will there be in each location (and what will that entail?) Thank you for your assistance! I am traveling alone and just found out about my trip!

  • Layover time
    Jun 5, 2014
    I'm flying Toronto (YYZ) to Frankfurt (FRA) on Lufthansa 6789 (operated by AC) with a 2h 15m layover until my flight from Frankfurt (FRA) to Budapest (BUD) on Lufthansa 1336 (operated by Lufthansa). Is the 2h 15m layover sufficient?


    forgot to add all flts are on DL


    You will arrive in Terminal 4. You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, then re-check your baggage with Delta. Then you can go up to the departures level and through security then take Delta's shuttle bus to Terminal 2 where your ORD flight will depart. Or you can take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and go through security in T2.

    Hi, I am traveling with a child from Birmingham to Johannesburg. Both flights are with Lufthansa.It will be my first time at FRA. My layover is only 1 hour 5 minutes. Is this enough time to get to my gate. I am getting really worried it won't be enough time as I've heard you have to walk a lot, plus security checks etc. Thanks for your help

    Hi We will be traveling from New Delhi to Frankfurt and on to Lisbon. All flights operated by Lufthansa. Our arrival time at Frankfurt is 0715 and departure to Lisbon at 0915. Will there be enough time and do we need to go through security again? Will be traveling with young children so please advice on walking distance/time to the connecting gate. Thanks in advance. AG.


  • distance between terminal 1C and Terminal 1 AB gate no Z22
    May 21, 2014
    I amarriving fom Mumbai by LH 757 and then proceeding to Detroit by LH 442. Please advise me with the walking distance and the time required as I am travellling for the first time


    On arrival at FRA you will have to go through 'non-Schengen' foreign arrivals procedure: going through passport check, picking up your bags, going with them through customs clearance, then re-checking bags in & proceeding to your connecting gate. Lufthansa uses Piers A & B (A & B gates). Frankfurt is easy to transfer and signs will guide you. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. On arrival in Detroit you will have to go through passport check, pick up bags and go through customs clearance before exiting the terminal.

    From B22 walk towards B19, pass B30-33 and enter B41-48 (B gates look like 2 arms connected to the chest (chest B gates 30-33).

  • Frankfurt-Milan
    May 8, 2014
    I have 60 min to connect from Terminal 1 gate C16A (coming from Boston) to Milan leaving from Terminal 1 gate A24. Is this enough time and what is the fastest way to get there? Thanks.


    c16a is terminal 2, you will need to use the skytrain


    They are both Lufthansa flights so I assumed gate C16 is Terminal 1?


  • 70 minute connection is it doable & need basic instructions?
    May 5, 2014
    I have a connection this coming week at FRA, from USA, I have never flown internationally :( best guess is I need to go from Z69 to A 30 or something similar. I looked at some airport maps and am not clear. Any instructions would be appreciated. Thanks Anne 4/23 Z66-A07 4/24 Z69-A16 4/25 Z69-A09 4/26 Z69-A06 4/27 Z69-A19 4/28 Z58-A19 4/29 B26A-A30 4/30 Z58-A52 5/1 Z69-A60 5/2 Z69-A23 5/3 Z69-A03


    Where are you connecting to?


    Chicago USA to Budapest via Frankfurt. Thanks

    FOR SHERMAN ONLY. Thanks for your help Sterling. What does a German A look like? Thanks again Anne


    Not Sherman, meant STERLING. Dang Auto Correct.
