hi,
i'm landing from PTY to FRA area B (non-shengen) and having a connected flight 8 hours later to SIN from area Z (non-schengen).

No issue regarding the connecting time.

Issue: it looks like there is no direct transit area between the area B and Z, meaning it is mandatory to do twice the passport check. Unfortunately my passport requires a Schengen Visa to enter EU.

In my case, can i go from area B to area Z without passport check, meaning i don't need a Schengen Visa?

Tks
Nic
It appears that there actually is a tunnel connecting the non-schengen areas of A and B to Z.
Yes there is a tunnel, I took it already once but it connects the area A n the initial part of area B which is still in the Schengen area. Actually when u came out from the elevator, you are exactly in front of the passport check, to leave the Schengen and enter the Non-Schengen area. Need to know if there is an other way actually. The tunnel is an almost secret and super useful way to avoid an additional customs screening, and it's super fundamental in case of short connection
We arrive from Bologna, Italy on Lufthansa Tuesday morning at 8 A.M. Our departing flight to Toronto is on Air Canada, leaving at 9:20 A.M. Do we need to change terminals? Can we make this?
Both flights will be in Terminal 1. You just have to go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
We have a 1hr35min connection between LH flight arriving from SVQSevilla and the next flight with AC to YYZToronto, Is this sufficient time between flights?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from Toronto to Frankfurt and a connection flight to Manchester I have never done a connecting flight before and I am flying lufthansa
That should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I arrive in Frankfurt at 12:45 on Condor from New orleans and have a connecting flight that was booked on separate ticket to Florence on Lufthansa at 16:05. I know I have to collect my bags and return thru customs. Do you think that will be enough time to make the flight?
That should be enough time.
I am traveling from San Francisco to Florence with a transfer at Frankfurt. I am flying on United Airlines and transfer to Lufthansa at FRA to go to FLR, booked through the same reservation. Is 1 hour 30 minutes enough time to comfortably make the connection from United to Lufthansa at FRA? Will I need to go through passport control and security? I am unfamiliar with the airport, so any information would truly be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Yes, that is enough time. You will just go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate. Just follow the signs.
I am arriving from LHR to Frankfurt, with a 1 hour connection time to make a flight to BOS. Both are Lufthansa flights. Based on yesterday's gates, it looks like the arrival flight comes into AEUW, a bus terminal. The departure to the US leaves from Z69. Is it going to be possible to make the connection flight?
That's barely possible if everything goes smoothly.
I am taking a flight with Lufthansa from Valencia and my connecting flight is with Air Canada I only have 1hr and 15mins and I am wondering if that will be enough time to make it?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I am arriving in Frankfurt on a Lufthansa flight at 20:55 and making a connection to another Lufthansa flight to Singapore at 21:55. Is 1 hour comfortable time for the connection, do I need to change terminals? Thanks for your help.
Where are you flying into Frankfurt from? Are both flights on the same reservation? Both flights will be in Terminal 1.
Flying to Frankfurt from Dublin, both will be on same booking and both Lufthansa. It seems if they are in the same terminal then 1hr should be fine? Thanks.
Yes, since you aren't entering the Schengen Area then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks for your help! Appreciate it. Best, John.
I have a 1:05 layover in Frankfort coming from Chicago on United. Flight to Hamburg is on Lufthansa. Is this enough time to get through immigration? Where do I go when I land in Frankfort?
In Frankfurt you will go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. That is a fairly risky connection.
