  • Terminal 1 connection from US to Bremen

    Hi, I am landing today on LH423 from Boston in terminal 1 at 5:55am and I have a connection to bremen LH 350 also departing from terminal 1 at 7. Do I need to go through custom and security before boarding. Do I have enough time ?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will not have to go through security but you will go through Passport control.

    I am Canadian traveling from Toronto to Bucharest on April 23 through Frankfurt. I have 1 hour and 20 minutes between flights, both operated by Lufthansa. Would this be enough time for connecting, please?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    Thank you, ZAP!

     

  • Traveling from DTW to MAA via FRA

    Hi, I'm traveling from DTW to FRA on Delta and then continuing on Lufthansa to MAA. I have 1 hr, 5 min between flights. I understand that the Delta flight will be arriving in Terminal 2, and the Lufthansa flight will be departing out of Terminal 1. The flights were booked on the same reservation. What is the procedure to transfer between the terminals? Will I need to go through security/passport control? Is 1 hr, 5 min enough time?

     

    Forgot to add that I am a US citizen.

     

    You will have to take the Skyline train from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You should not have to go through passport control.

    I am US citizen arriving 8:40 AM from Seattle with a connection to Cairo at 10:00 AM. Both flights are Lufthansa. Is 1 hour 20 minutes enough to make this connection? Thank you.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Sorry it's me again. Just want to provide additional information. I am coming from YYZ flight ZZ9104 (AC9104) operated by Lufthansa arrive 8:00 AM Terminal 1. Depart 9:20 AM flight ZZ9180 (AC9180) Terminal 1 to Madrid. Date May 25.

     

    Then in that case all you have to do is go through schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you ZAP

    To clarify my last post. I am a Canadian citizen and I am not sure if I have to go through customs, immigration and pass port control again. Please advise.

     

    Yes, since you are entering the Schengen area in Frankfurt you will go through passport control in Frankfurt. Assuming you are on two separate reservations, you will just have to go through security in Terminal 2. The flight from Frankfurt to Madrid is like a domestic flight.

  • Aer Lingus to Ethiopian Airlines

    Looking to book flights arriving into Frankfurt on Aer Lingus and departing on Ethiopian airlines, will 2 hours be sufficient for this transfer under normal circumstances? If I need to collect baggage and recheck it in will there be any chance of making the connection?

     

    If you need to collect and re-check baggage I don't think this would be possible. You will also have to change terminals as Aer Lingus uses Terminal 2 and Ethiopian uses Terminal 1.

    Looking to book a business class return from Rome to Boston. Is 55 minutes enough time? Not as concerned about baggage.

     

    That's probably barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, we are Singaporeans travelling from Lisbon to Frankfurt on Lufthansa and arriving at Frankfurt airport at 1020am, and our connecting flight is on Singapore Airlines at 1230pm. Is there enough time? Do we need to clear passport control? Thanks!

     

    You will go through Schengen exit passport control in Frankfurt. You should have plenty of time for your connection.

    I only have 45 minutes between connecting flights, if the flights are on time. How long does it take to get from gate A28 to Z69?

     

    Where are you coming from and going to?

    Couple traveling (biz class) from US to Lisbon with bicycles and luggage, concerned about 1hr 20 mins. connection time in FRA, arriving Concourse A to connection Concourse B. We have a choice to connect from UA to either Lufthansa or TAP Air Portugal. Is this sufficient time, and is one airline more convenient to connect to (same question on the return)? Thanks for any advice (we've been spun around at FRA on previous trips it's a bit mind boggling).

     

    The two airlines are about the same in terms of ease/difficulty. You should have enough time.

    Hello, I will be flying with lufthansa from Berlin to FRA. Arriving at terminal 1 gate ASO. And then FRA to Kuwait by Kuwait Airlines which departs from terminal 2.Should I go through passport and security checks? And I want get my taxfree forms stamped by custom office and my purchase is in my carry-on, where can I find the office? And what are the procedures?

     

    You will go through Schengen exit passport control in Terminal 2 when you enter the pier for your Kuwait Airways flight. you would probably use the office in Terminal 2 since that is where you are exiting the EU.

     

    Thank you for your responce. There is only one passport control in terminal 2 right? And do you happen to know where is the custom office exactly in terminal two because I dont have a lot of time to get lost. Thank you once again!

     

  • Transfer thru Frankfurt

    I will be travelling from Bangalore on LH755 on 8-April with a checked bag and transferring to United 906 on 8-April from Frankfurt to Chicago. Will my checked bag be directly transferred to the United flight or do I need to collect it and re-check it to Chicago ? Will I go thru Customs in Frankfurt ? Will I have to go back thru security in Frankfurt ? Thanks

     

    You just have to go through security in Frankfurt. You don't have to do anything with your bag or go through passport control.

     

    Thanks

     

  • DFW - FRA - MAD

    I'm travelling on American from DFW to FRA landing at 8:30am. Next flight was booked separately on Lufthansa at 9:20am to MAD. Will I have to go through customs? Is that enough time? Same question on my flights back. I'm travelling on Lufthansa from MAD to FRA landing at 8:45am. Next flight was purchased separately on American leaving at 10:30am to DFW. Will I have to go through customs? Is that enough time?

     

    will only have a carry on bag

     

    You have to go through passport control and change terminals both ways. The connection on the way to MAD will be very difficult if not impossible.
