  • Transfer from Lufthansa to United
    Oct 5, 2012
    Traveling from Istanbul to FRA via Lufthansa and transferring to a United flight to SFO. I have an 1 hour 15 minutes to do this. Can I go directly to United gate at FRA terminal 1 or do I have to go through immigration or some other check point before proceeding to United gate. Thanks


    On arrival at FRA you need to go through "non-Schengen" (foreign) passport control. You will arrive and depart from the same Terminal 1 - Lufthansa uses A & B Concourses ("Piers); United uses B Concourse. Pier A has gates A1-42 & Z11-26), Pier B has gates B1-B63). If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1between B gates (T1B) and A or Z gates (T1A), you can use transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins.

  • Connecting flight in 45 minutes
    Oct 4, 2012
    Hi, I plan to take Vietnam Airlines from Hanoi to Frankfurt arriving at 6am, then take Lufthansa connecting fly to Hannover at 6.45 am. Is 45 minutes enough to transfer and can I do the immigration procedures at Hannover airport? Many thanks.


    Even though it is a large and very busy airport, you have time. It is extremely efficient.


    You will arrive at Frankfurt Airport at Terminal 2 - D gates. You need to depart via Lufthansa to Terminal 1 A/B gates - After arrival and passport check /immigration procedures, you need to take your bags along to Terminal 1 by using the shuttle bus outside. At Terminal 1 you need to check in your bags with Lufthansa, get your boarding pass and proceed to either Pier A or B (gates A or B), the overhead screens in the terminal will indicate your flight number, gate & departure time. 45 mins is very short. Hurry! NOTE: If your Vietnam Airline will transfer your bags to Lufthansa connection, you will be able to take the SkyLine train to Terminal 1 instead, which runs every 2-3 mins.

    You have plenty of time - Lufthansa uses both Piers A & B, connected by a transfer tunnel. Pier A has gates A1-42 & Z11-26; Pier B has gates B1-63. You can also take the SkyLine Train from Pier A to PierB.


  • Connection to Paris
    Sep 30, 2012
    Hi. I am arriving at FRA at 8:25am by LH755 (from BLR, India) and having a connecting flight to Paris at 9:35am LH1030. Which gate does LH755 arrive at and how far is the departure gate of LH1030? What are my chances to make the connection in such a short duration? Any tips to reach the departure gate in quickest possible time?


    You arrive and depart from the same Terminal 1 - Lufthansa uses Pier A (gates A1-42 & Z11-26) and Pier B (gates B1-B63) - the overhead screens on arrival & your ticket should indicate connecting gate - you need to go through non-Schengen (foreign) passport before proceeding to your connecting gate: you can use either the transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. You have enough time!


  • Transfer between Terminal1 and Terminal2
    Sep 22, 2012
    Hello... I arrive from Toronto on Air Canada to Terminal 1 at around noon and my connecting to Colombo with Srilankan is in Terminal 2.. I have about 2.5 hours to do the transfer... Is it enough?


    At FRA Airport T1 & T2 are next to each other and are connected by the SkyLine monorail and by shuttle buses. The SkyLine trains leave every 2-3 minutes, stopping at T1's Concourses A & B continuing to T2 between Concourses D & E. The Arrivals Level 1 for both terminals has a shuttle bus stop outside at left, to Terminal 2's D gates, departing every 10 minutes. As you will have to go through non-Schengen immigration procedure on arrival, you will probably need to take the post-security shuttle bus. Eiter way, you have enough time.


  • Gate for Lufthansa to Rio de Janeiro
    Sep 14, 2012
    Hi, I am going to fly to Rio de Janeiro by Lufthansa on 17th of December from Delhi. I will land at FIA at 7 am. I have 3 hours of transition at the Frankfurt International Airport (FIA). Which gate should I go for departure to Rio?


    At FRA on arrival you need to go through non-Schengen (foreign) passport check. Lufthansa uses Concourses A & B of Terminal 1. (A gates were temporarily renumbered to Z gates 11-25 due to ongoing construction there); B gates remain B gates - On arrival look at overhead screens to find your flight number and gate. The SkyLine trains leave every 2-3 minutes, stopping at T1's Concourses A & B. You have plenty of time.

    My friends are arriving at 13.40h from Lisbon (LH6955) and connecting to Larnaca with departure at 14.40h (CY377). Can you please provide assistance so they can get the flight to Larnaca? Their names: Luis Barreiros and Tiago Filho. Thanks


    Your friends arrive at FRA via Lufthansa at Terminal 1, Concourse B (B gates) and depart with Cypress Airways in the same Concourse. No need to transfer - they just need to walk over to their connecting gate (overhead screens should indicate flight number & gate).


  • transfering between terminal 2 and 1
    Sep 3, 2012
    I will arrive at 16:30 by British airways in terminal 2 and my connection flight is LH900 from Terminal 1 gate B25. What is the best way to reach my connection flight gate ?


    At FRA Airport you will connect from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1, Pier B, which ison level 2. If you need to transfer between the two terminals, use the free SkyLine train which connects B, D & E gates, and comes around every two minutes.

    On 28.12.12 I am arriving from LAS on DE 4083 at 13:30 and then departing on JU 351 to BEG at 14:50. These flights are not being purchased as connecting, but rather separate flights. Is there enough time to clear passport control, claim baggage, check-in and board the JU 351 flight?


    You arrive at FRA via Condor Airlines and depart via Jat Airways, both using Terminal 1, Concourse C gates. You need to go through non-Schengen passport conrol, then pick up your bags, check them in and get your boarding pass for your connecting flight: If you do not yet have a boarding card for your connecting flight, you can obtain one at the gate or at the Transfer Desk in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. FRA has excellent directional signs. Your time is tight, hurry.
