    Hello, My Mother is travelling alone for first time from Basel to mumbai, with connecting flight from Frankfurt. The airlines is lufthansa . flight from basel to frankfurt is LH1203 AND Frankfurt to Mumbai is LH756. There is 1 hr 5 min time at frankfurt. Will it be sufficient to complete all the process and board the next flight. Waiting for your valuable comments and response


    It should be enough time but there isn't much time to spare.


    Can you also guide on the terminal where they will land in frankfurt and where to board the next flight..

    Oct 31, 2014
    I am planning to book a flight on LH from YYZ in business and making a connection through FRA to LHR again on LH. Is 40 minutes enough time for the connection?


    That's a pretty difficult connection.

    From Prague (PRG) with a 55 minute layover in FRA, on the way to PHL in the States. All on one ticket with Lufthansa, both flights Terminal 1. Will I have to go through passport control at Frankfurt if I'm coming from PRG or will I be able to go directly to the gate?


    You will go through Schengen exit passport control as you exit the schengen wing and then you will go through security at your departure gate.


    Thank you, ZAP. Do you think it is possible in 55 minutes? I know it will be tight. I read about the fast lanes at passport control - are they available on the exit side as well?


  • B27A/ A06

    I land from manchester into gate B27A at Frankfurt and have a layover leaving Frankfurt from gate a06. Does anyone know how far these are in walking distance from each other???


    They are fairly close, connected by a tunnel.


  • travelling w 2 kids - connecting in Frankfurt gate b1 to gate 1AB
    Oct 20, 2014
    is it easy or should I take train and/or shuttle to connect and will it be a hazard?


    gate 1AB does not exist

    Is the 1 1/2 hour layover enough time for a transfer from lh 949 to lh 400 ?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control.


    good luck with that. fra airport is a big mess with lots of security checks, slow and nasty personnel and horrific signage. it will be nerve wrecking and nail biting is guaranteed.


  • Enough time?
    Oct 13, 2014
    Traveling from Zagreb (Lufthansa/Croatian Air) arriving Terminal 1 (no gate given) and connecting with LH 490 to Seattle. Only 60 minutes layover. Enough time?


    should have mentioned the Seattle flight is leaving from gate terminal 1 Z23


    prepare to sprint, but i dont think you will make it in time. fra airport is a behemoth.

  • Arriving LH 783 and connection LH 270
    Oct 8, 2014
    We are a group of families around 40 passenger will be arriving with LH 783 from KUL scheduled at 7:15 and connection to LH 270 Milan Linate at 8:45. Pls advice if we need to pass immigration at FRA ? Secondly do we have enough time to be at the designated gate for LH 270. Kindly advice us thank you..


    You will go through Schengen passport control when entering the schengen wing of the terminal before your flight to LIN. 90 minutes should be sufficient for your transfer.


    Thank you ZAP, really appreciate your advice


  • 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

    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)
