    I'm from Brazil, and I'm going to Italy with stop in Frankfurt and my flight-back are 7 months after, only in December. But, I will stay in Italy only 25 days, after I going to London and stay there during 5 months, than I will back to Italy. I need a special visa for it? Could you help me?


    You can normally visit Italy or transit Germany without a Visa, but since you are staying so long, you will need a longer, multiple entry visa issued by an Italian consulate or embassy.

    Is enought time 1.5 hrs to connect from a flight coming from Minsk, Belarus to Frankfurt. I have to take the plane coming to Toronto, Canada. ALso, I have to check my luggages again?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do is go through security and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.

    I arrive FRA Terminal 1 from Philadelphia on United 9199 operated by Lufthansa @ 7:40am. I want to catch another Lufthansa Flight LH1202 operated by Lufthansa @ 9:45am. Will I have to go through customs, security and reclaim my bag and get back in line at the Lufthansa counter to begin the process all over again or bags will transfer and I will just travel through the Transfer Gate right to my flight to BSL?


    You will go through schengen passport control and go to your departure gate. You have enough time. You dont' have to do anything with your bags or go through security.


    Thank you for your replay ZAP. I forgot to tell you I need to purchase the FRA- BSL - it will be a separate flight - so if I have to go through customs, security, get bag -do you still think 2hrs will be enough time?


    If you have to do that it will be difficult, but since both flights are on Lufthansa the agent in Philadelphia should be able to check your bags through to Basel.


  • Trf between Airlines at FRA
    Apr 19, 2016
    My girlfriend is arriving into FRA at 6:05AM on China Eastern. Then has a flight out on British Airways at 7:25AM. Both Airlines are in Terminal 2. One agent booked both flights but I don't think they will be considered the same ticket. Will she have enough time to collect baggage and re-check in?


    She will have to ask the China Eastern agent in her origin.

    What airline are you flying from Ljubljana? What airline are you flying out of Frankfurt? Where are you flying to?


  • Making a connection in FRA

    We have a Condor flight out of FRA on 06/30 at 2:05pm on 06/30. We will arrive at FRA from Paris on Air France at 11:20 am with luggage checked. Is this plenty of time for a connection?


    That should be enough time assuming the flight from Paris is on-time. Since you'll have to transfer your bags yourself between terminals you might have to take the shuttle bus to Terminal 1.

    I'm traveling from Newark in the USA to Krakow with a 55 minute layover in Frankfurt. I will check my luggage to my final destination. All flights with Lufthansa. Is 55 minutes enough time?


    It should be just enough time if your first flight is on-time.

  • LAX to FRA 1:15 layover
    Mar 13, 2016
    I am flying into FRA from Los Angeles on April 2nd and my layover is only an hour and 15 minutes... Am I going to have to claim my bag, go through customs and then board the next plane? Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Where are you flying on your next flight? Are all your flights on the same reservation? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without that information.


    Lufthansa - LAX to FRA to NCE all one reservation.


    You don't have to claim your bags, you just go through passport control and to your departure gate.

    I have a Bangalore - Detroit Lufthansa flight with 1 hour layover in Frankfurt. Is 1 hour sufficient time to transit between the 2 flights? Should we go through security?


    You will have to go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time if your flight from Bangalore arrives on-time.
