  • short connection
    Oct 16, 2012
    I am traveling on UA900 from SFO to FRA arriving at 8:45am and departing on LH1278 to ATH at 9:35am. Do I have any chance of making this connection knowing that I have to get off the jet and proceed through foreign passport control?


  • Is time is enough
    Oct 16, 2012
    I am supposed to reach FRA by UA 9oo flight @9.45 am and have to board LH 758 to MAA 11.00am. Whether I have enough time?. By any chance my SFO flight is delayed and I am not able to board MAA flight what is the alternative arragement Airlines will provide?.


    Both United and Lufthansa use Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport; while United used Pier B - it may now arrive on the brand-new 'Pier A-Plus, where all incoming flights from the US will be handled in Area A (not sure if that is already effective). Lufthansa uses Piers A & B with corresponding gates. Look on arrival for your connecting flight number, gate & departure time.

    I'm flying in on United UA119 and transferring to UA 9360(LH1126). Will my luggage go through to my destination(Barcelona) or do I have to claim it at Frankfort and go through customs there?


    1. At FRA Airport you arrive at, and depart from, Terminal 1, pier (concourse) B (B gates B1-B63). You will have to go through 'non-Schengen' (foreign) passport check.


  • 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.


  • Connection to moscow
    Oct 2, 2012
    Hi..I am planning to book flight from dublin to moscow with lufthansa..It arrives to frunkfurt 15.40 terminal 1.Leaving frankfurt terminal 1 for moscow at 16.50. Will i be able to catch flight with such a short connection? Thanks


    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.
