    Hi, we will be arriving in FRA from Canada and have a connecting flight to Athens on Lufthansa. The time between flights is only 1 hour and 55 minutes. Will that be enough time to clear passport control and not miss our flight?


  • Gate A to Gate B

    What is the normal/average travel time taking the tunnel from Gate A to Gate B in Terminal 1. At what Gate A number is access to the tunnel, which ends I believe at B19.

    arr at 8:00 connecting flt at 8:55 is there enough time?


    At FRA you will arrive at Area A of Terminal 1 (for members of the Star Alliance, incl. Lufthansa) for passport control & customs clearance; if you continue your flight on Lufthansa it will either use Pier A or Pier B gates of the same terminal (a tunnel connects between the A, Z & B gates and the SkyLine train near gate B-8 connects to E & D gates of Terminal 2 & runs every 2 mins. T2 serves mainly non-Star Alliance airlines. Your time is tight, but should suffice.


  • Making Our Connection

    We are arriving from SFO around 11:20 am at 1A Term 1 Hall A then leaving for Venice around 13:20 from 1 Hall AB 260-338 Gate A. First time out of the USA via airplane. How far of a walk do we have to make our connection? Do we need to clear customs? Thank you to everyone in advance for your help


    On arrival at Frankfurt Airport, which is well marked & easy to navigate, all arriving U.S. flights are handled at Area A; after customs clearance, you can take the tunnel to the your connecting B gates, arriving near gate B19 (B gates are B1-63). You have plenty of time.

    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).
