    What terminal does American Airlines use in Frankfurt and what terminal does Lufthansa use for departures to Copenhagen ?


    American uses Terminal 2 and Lufthansa uses Terminal 1. If you are doing this connection with checked baggage you need at least 3 hours between flights.

    Hi, I am new to flying internationally, apologies in advance if I seem clueless. I will be flying solo from Prague to Frankfurt & then Frankfurt to Seattle. Booked through Condor on the same ticket, got a notice recently that my layover was shortened to 3 hours. Is this enough time to make it through security, passport control, etc...? I am planning to check one bag as well.


    Ah, and another question--How do I search which terminal I fly into and out of? The E confirmation doesn't indicate any terminal info. Thanks for any help!


    3 hours is still plenty of time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen Exit passport control and to your departure gate.


  • Enough Time?
    Mar 6, 2016
    Arriving in Terminal 2 with American Airlines from USA/DFW to Frankfurt. No checked bags. 1 1/2 hours until Lufthansa flight to Dublin, Ireland, I am assuming Terminal 1. Is this do-able?


    With no checked bags I think you'd have a chance, it's by no means easy though.


  • United to Lufthansa on Sunday morning
    Mar 6, 2016
    I have a flight arriving on United from Newark at 9:15am on Sunday and connecting at 11:10 on Lufthansa to Venice. Do I need to worry about making that flight? We don't have to get our bags and go through customs in Frankfurt, do we? Thanks for your input!


    You should have plenty of time. You just have to go through passport control in Frankfurt. You don't have to do anything with your bags.


  • Calgary, Alberta (Canada)to Delhi (India)
    Mar 5, 2016
    i have layover of 2.25 hrs at frankfurt >Is it enough time to board LH 760 Lufthansa plane in Terminal 1? What is passport control.What procedures i have to follow and will i be able to board my lufthansa flight for Delhi on time in 2.25 layover time?


    You are not entering the Schengen Area so you don't go through passport control. You have enough time. You don't have to ask essentially the same question 3 times.


    Thanks ZAP .last query is how long it wil take for security check.


    I do not believe arrivals from Canada have to go through security for connections, but if you do, it will be a brief process.

Air Canada will arrive in Terminal 1 from Calgary and I need to board LH 760 for New Delhi, India, Is 2 hrs 25 mins layover is sufficient ? How long it takes to reach the LH 760 gate


  • 2.25 hrs layover time

    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Leipzig to FRA to Penn
    Mar 3, 2016
    I am flying from Leipzig arriving at FRA 9:15am via Lufthansa and leaving to Philadelphia 11am via American Airline. 1h 45 min is enough? I have Japanese passport with US residency.


    Do you have checked bags? I assume the two tickets are purchased on separate reservations, correct?


    Yes, I have checked bags. These tickets were purchased separately.


    Then no, I don't think that's enough time.


    If I change the flight from Leipzig arriving at FRA at 7:05am? 3h 55min would work?


    Yes, I think that would work


    Thanks, ZAP. I will change it, and I have decided to do without luggage check-in just in case.


  • Is 1.10hr layover sufficient
    Mar 2, 2016
    I have a 1.10hr layover at Frankfurt (Bom-FRA then FRA-LJU). Both seem at the same terminal. I will be checking my baggage through and through (same airline). Would the 1.10hr layover be sufficient?


    To add to be query above, I am an India passport holder and will be holding a Schengen visa. The airline is LH.


    Yes, that should be just enough time.


    Many thanks ZAP! That's some reassurance. :) And would you know if i would need to do a passport/immigration check at Frankfurt or would it be at LJB?


    Yes, since Lithuania is in the Schengen Area and you are entering the Schengen Area in Frankfurt you will go through entry passport control in Frankfurt. You will not have to go through passport control when you arrive in Ljubljana.


    Thanks again ZAP! Will have to keep my fingers crossed for a short passport control line!


  • LH T1 to BA T2
    Mar 19, 2016
    I have an LH flight arriving T1 at 15:00 then a BA flight leaving T2 at 17:15. They have different reservations, so I have to get bags and re-check-in. Is there enough time??


    Where is your Lufthansa flight from?


    Hi there, I will be facing more or less the same transfer soon. I have 3 hrs 20 mins to go through security, get my checked in luggage, check in for the BA flight and get to the gate. Is this possible? Do share your experience if you have already made the journey. Thank you.


  • budapest-frankfurt-new york
    Mar 4, 2016
    I'll be flying from Budapest to New York via Frankfurt, booked on same ticket, both flights on terminal 1, connection time is 50 min. Should I be worried about making it trough security in time or about the baggage transfer?


    forgot to mention that flights are operated by Lufthansa, LH1339 arriving in Frankfurt at 16:20, LH404 departing at 17:10. Thanks for your responses!


    That will be difficult, but not impossible.


    Hi Daniel, I'm in the same situation. When will you fly? As far as I know LH 1339 goes to A gates and LH 404 is supposedly departing from Z gates so it should be easy to do if passport check and security goes well. Could you give an update if you made it and how difficult it was?


    Hi Andras! As I was worried, I have called Lufthansa. They said there will be no problem with the transfer because we will only have to get from one plane to another without security check! And yes, flight 1339 will arrive on A and 404 will depart from Z gates - no secury control between these zones. They said that a security check will be performed as we will arrive on JFK. However, we will only fly in June so the update will have to wait! :)


    Can I ask when in June? We'll be flying on the 11th on the same line. Its good to know there is no security check between A and Z!! I didn't know that. I've also called LH but they were not particularly helpful so all the info I got about the gates is from FlightRadar tracks :)


    Well then we are on the same plane, we leave on the 11th also!!! The return will be on July 2nd (arrival on 3rd). We should keep in touch for any new information until then!


    Very cool :D Then at least we can help each other, where to go when we're there. Let's keep in touch then!


    For simplicity's sake, you can find me on facebook: Dani Cupar, from Cluj-Napoca, aviation ethusiast :)


  • 1hr30 minute connection time from ATH-FRA then FRA-SFO
    Feb 29, 2016
    Hi, we will be flying Lufthansa from ATH-FRA and there will be a 1h30 min connection before our United FRA-SFO flight (this is all on one reservation). I tried doing some searches and it seems like both flights are at Terminal 1, but I'm not sure. Do you think this connection is enough time? Also, if anyone has experience with where these flights are located terminal-wise, that'd be very helpful too! Thank you!


    Yes, both flights are in Terminal 1. Yes, you should have enough time.


    Thanks so much for your reply, ZAP!


  • Can I Make the Flight
    Feb 27, 2016
    Leaving on Luthansa from Warsaw and landing in Frankfurt at 8:45 AM. Flight for Orlando leaves Frankfurt at 10:05 AM on Condor airlines. Will I have time to make the flight to Orlando after my flight from Warsaw? Any responses would be appreciated.


    If both tickets are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.


    Feb 27, 2016
    can anyone tell me if I have to collect luggage and clear German customs in FRA if connecting thru within 2hours to TXL- all flights on 1 ticket. ???


    No, you do not have to claim your bags in Frankfurt. You should have plenty of time.


  • Navigation and Security Question going from A15 to B25
    Feb 27, 2016
    Wanted to get a idea on how to make connection in FRA. Will be arriving from USA at Gate A15 and making a connection at Gate B25. Would appreciate any info on how to get from A15 to B25 and if I will have to go through Passport/Security Checkpoints. Will be traveling to Istanbul. Thanks


    You will not go through passport control since you are not entering the Schengen Area. FRA Terminal 1 is a well-marked labyrinth. Just follow the signs to your departure gate and you'll be OK.
