  • connecting in Frankfurt
    Nov 2, 2012
    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....


  • Enough connection time?
    Nov 1, 2012
    Arriving Dec. 2 on LH445 at 8:40AM and leaving on LH1150 to Malaga at 9:45AM. Will I have enough time to go thru immigration and security and get to gate to make Malaga flight. I believe luggage will transfer to connecting without me needing to handle in Frankfort - correct?


    AT Frankfurt Airport, Lufthansa uses both Concourses A & B of Terminal 1. All incoming flights from the U.S. are being handled at Area A. To connect between B & A gates use either the the transfer tunnel at pre-security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which runs every 2-3 mins. Your bags will be transferred to your connecting flight. You have enough time.


  • Pier A+ not in the map?
    Oct 28, 2012
    why is concourse A+ not in the map? Its an additional pier, not just integrated into A (like you did). The whole pier is missing in the drawings....


    Concourse A is on the ifly map: see; and the text under the map does refer to A+ opening. However, the person charged with maps has not yet had a chance to make the change (overwhelmed by so many Airport around the world adding new terminals, etc.) I see from Frankfurt AP map that Concourse A now branches into to arms, one with gates A1-42 & another (A+) with gates 50-69).


  • Visa Requirements
    Oct 22, 2012
    Hi, We are family of 5 from India. We are Coming to Frankfurt via LH 761 and from Frankfurt to IAD via LH 416. We have about couple of hrs before boaring our connecting flight I have couple of queries since this is our 1st trip overseas (1) Do we need a German visa. (2) Do we need to collect our checked bags and drop them back at the Check In again. (3) Do we need to pas through immigration and is this time sufficient. Thanks in anticipation.


    Frankfurt Airport is well-managed with international signs guiding you. Your arrival and departure will be from the same Terminal 1; however Lufthansa uses both Concourses A & B with corresponding gates. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight number, gate & departure time. As you only use one Airline for both legs of your journey, your bags will automatically be transferred to the connecting flight. All you need to do is follow the "non-Schengen" (foreign) passport-check line. As long as you stay within the secured area (after security checkpoint) you can eat or shop (as time allows); then - if needed - take the SkyLine Train running every 2-3 minutes and stopping between Concourses A & B.


    Appreciated, I am also coming back via LH419 and LH760 en-route to delhi & have about 5 and a half hrs stoppage Are duty free shops within the security checkpoints.


  • Worried about timing

    Will be arriving from Istanbul on Lufthansa at 4:10 pm on Feb 25th and departing via Air Canada to Toronto at 5 pm - do I have enough time??What happens if I miss my connection? (connections made by a travel agent)


    You arrive & depart from Terminal 1 of FRA Airport; while Lufthansa uses both Concourses A & B, Air Canada uses Concourse C. The Skyline train connects these concourses, running every few mins.


  • Flight Worries

    Hi. I am coming from Venice, Italy on UA9058 arriving at 11:55am in FRA. My flight from FRA on UA8827 to Washington, Dulles leaves at 1pm which gives me about an hour to transfer gates. Will I have to pass through customs? Will I have enough time to make it to my gate?


    You arrive and depart at Frankfurt Airport in Terminal 1 - Concourse B (B gates B1-63).
