  • Distance between gates
    Jun 26, 2013
    Flying from Lisbon on TAP with connecting Lufthansa flight to Denver. Only have 1 hour between flights. Will this be enough time?


    On arrival at FRA, you need to go through passport check at Area A; you connecting flight is out of Concourse A, Z gates (upstairs). You should have enough time.


    Thank you!


  • Connecting to Croatia Airlines
    Jun 22, 2013
    Hi. We only have 50 minutes to change from our flight on American Airlines to get to Croatia Airlines. Is this possible?


    Your first concern is to find out whether American is transferring bags to Croatia airline flight; if not you need to claim your bags & re-check them in with Croatia. On arrival you go through passport check at Area A. Croatia is most likely at Terminal 1, Concourse A. 50 mins. is very tight.

  • Lufthansa US to FRA to BCN with cat
    May 27, 2013
    Hi - (1) where do we get the BCN flight in Frankfurt, is it near our US (From Sea-Tac) arrival gate? (2) do we go through passport or customs at FRA or in BCN or both? (3) Will it take us longer to transfer or go through passport or customs because we have a cat as carry-on? Thanks!


    At FRA, U.S. Arrivals (non-Schengen /foreign)are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only; (US departures use the Z gates, which are one flight above A gates). If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1, between B gates (T1B)and A gates (T1A)- Lufthansa uses both - you can use either the transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. Regarding cat - that depends on how German security is handling this - cannot advise you on that. On arrival at Barcelona, you are considered a 'Schengen' (domestic) flight.

    My wife and I have a one hour connection. I understand we will arrive FRA Terminal A gates. Will our departure gate to BUD also be in Terminal A? I am seeing flights departing from A28 and A60. Is A60 on the upper level of Terminal A and shown on the terminal map at Z60?


    Terminal 1 at FRA is used by Lufthansa and its Star Alliance, including United & US Airways Terminal 2 by all other airlines). As an international arrival you will land at Concourse A building, separate from the main terminal, which has its A gates on the lower level and its Z gates on the upper level. If your connecting flight is out of B gates, use the connecting tunnel to the main terminal and proceed to C gates if necessary.


  • from Spain to SFO
    May 9, 2013
    Hi, I have 45 min of connection between flight in FRA terminal 1 on Sunday. I come from Barcelona and I go to San Francisco. I only have 45 minutes between flights. Can someone help or advice me about connections betweens gates? :P Thank you!


    If you arrive at and depart from the same Terminal 1 of FRA, you will use either Z, B or C gates; your transfer time should suffice. This is the Concourse layout: Concourse Z (on upper level of Concourse A) is divided into gates Z11-25 (left) and Z50-69 (right) - accessible from the Tunnel connecting A, Z & B Concourse B, gates B1-B63: a transfer tunnel near B19 connects to A & Z gates; the SkyLine train near B-8 connects to E & D gates of Terminal 2. C gates are on the opposite side of A, B & Z piers, accessible from level 2 of the main terminal, with separate gate areas holding gates C1-C9, and gates C13-20 (located near D gates D32-35.)
