HI, we are flying from Dubrovnik on Lufthansa and have a 2hr layover in FRA to go to ATL on Delta. Do we need to go through immigration AND security again in Terminal 2? Secondly, is 2hrs enough to make our connecting flight? We have a business class seat on Lufthansa so we can get off the plane faster... Thank you for your advice!
There is a way to use the Skyline train sterile airside, but ONLY if you have no checked bags or if your bags are checked through to Delta. Otherwise you will have to go through all the procedures, making this connection very risky.
I am flying with three little kids with condor from Portland Oregon to Poland. I have two hr layover in Frankfurt. Is there enough time to make it to my connecting flight?both flights are from Lufthansa terminal but I remember last time they messed something up with strollers and we had to wait long time after we made it to the airport. Plus there is a bus from the condor aircraft to the airport that takes about 40 minutes. Would it makes sense to book gate to gate service?
We are arriving via Lufthansa from Chicago in Terminal 1 and connecting to another Lufthansa flight to Marseilles in Terminal 1. Connection time is 1 hour 10 minutes. Group of 7 with one senior (wheelchair assistance). Will we have sufficient time, considering we need to go through Schengen passport control? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Chicago is on-time.
Hello, I am scheduled on a plane from Chicago - Frankfurt via United Airlines and I was supposed to end up there. However, I decided to book another ticket privately from Frankfurt - Oslo, and there is 2 hours from when I arrive and until the Oslo flight (SAS) departures. Will it be enough time, since I have to collect my luggage and re-check it? How long will that process be and is there a long distance between these two gates?
That should be barely enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying from Halifax, Canada to Frankfurt Main arriving in Terminal 1. My connection is to Venice, Italy. Do I need to transfer terminals and is there a shuttle/train that moves people back and forth?

Thank You!
If the second flight is on Lufthansa it will also be in Terminal 1.
My husband and my two kids are travelling from Mauritius via Frankfurt to Charles de gaulles. They have 2 hours to have their connection on Lufthansa. I would like to know if 2 hours enough for them. Because it is their first flight. Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
IAD to PNQ on Lufthansa via Frankfurt ( LH 419 & LH 768). Do I need to go though immigration or security check at Frankfurt again? Do I need transit visa for terminal connections?
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have a valid US Visa then you don't need a transit visa.
I am arriving in Frankfurt on Unitrd and taking a Lufthansa flight to Tel Aviv 1 hour 45 mins later. Single booking made with United Airlines. What does the connection involve? Do I have to go through security again ? Do I have to pick up and recheck my bags?
You will just go to your departure gate where there will be Israeli security. Nothing with your checked bags.
I am arriving from SFO Terminal 1 at 12:10 and have taking an outbound flight at 1:35 at Terminal 1 to Mumbai India . (1 hour and 25 mins layover). Is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flight from BSL to FRA for connection to flight to USA (I am US citizen). With only 50 minutes between flights, will I have enough time?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
