I am flying with Air Canada arriving from Tegel airport Berlin and have an hour and 15 minutes to transfer and catch a flight to Toronto Pearson via Air Canada. Do I need to collect my bags and go through security for this and is there enough time? Thanks in advance, DT
Hello, I'm flying from USA to Frankfurt with Condor, then with 2 hours layover I have a connection flight to Moscow operated by Airflot. Do I need a transit visa to get to my next flight in Frankfurt? Thanks.
What is your citizenship?
Unless you are traveling with no checked bags it appears you will have to transfer them yourself between Condor and Aeroflot, which means you will need a Short-Stay Schengen Visa issued by Germany.
Hello! I will be flying from Krakow, PL to Chicago, USA with a connection in Frankfurt. Do I need to go through customs, immigration or another security line in Frankfurt? I land in Terminal 1 in Frankfurt and depart from there too. Is it best to check my bags through to Chicago or carry them on? Thank you!
Arrival to Frankfurt Airport Terminal 1 is by Singapore Airlines from New York, then connecting from Frankfurt Terminal 1 to Munich via Lufthansa flight. Do we need to clear bags/luggage at Frankfurt? Connection time is 1.5 hours. Will there be enough time?
Flying Denver-Fra and then Fra-Tel Aviv on Lufthansa with 2 hour layover. Do I need to go through customs/passport control in Fra? Will my luggage be checked straight to Tel Aviv?
No, since you are not entering the Schengen Area there is no passport control in Frankfurt. You will just go to the gate where there will be special Israeli security. You won't have to do anything with your bags.
We are arriving on LH 447 from DEN and departing on LH 1114 to MAD on a single reservation. We have just under two hours. We have confirmed wheelchair assistance for my wife. Is it a long distance between the likely gates?
