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?
There are no short walks in Frankfurt T1.
My niece's Lufthansa flight 441 from HOU to FRA was delayed and she will only have 90 minutes before her final leg on LH 1406 to BEG.
All booked on same ticket. Will this be enough time?
That should still be enough time.
I will be travelling from SFO to FRA to DUS all on Lufthansa and booked on a single ticket. Will I have to retrieve my bags and clear customs in Frankfurt or in Dusseldorf? Thanks!
You won't see your bags until you get to Dusseldorf.
Arrive at 16:15 off LH 1433 Business Class and depart LH 1046 to Paris at 17:20. Carry on bag. Do I make the connection?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Do I have to go through customs en transit? If so will get some traveller assistance. Thank you!!
Yes, you will go through Schengen entry passport control in Frankfurt.
VERY Tight timing if passport control! Anything I can do in advance to get flight LH to expedite?
Flying DAL-FRA-VCE on Lufthansa. 2 hours between the connection, no checked bags. Will we go through Schengen passport control? Is there enough time to go to the Lufthansa welcome lounge near baggage claim, or would we be better off using the departure area lounge?
Assuming you mean Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW), you will go through Schengen entry passport control in Frankfurt. I don't think you'd have enough time to go to the welcome lounge.
Hi, we're travelling Mumbai (India) to Toronto via frankfurt with layover of 1 hr & 20 min. Need to know the usual arrival gate of LH757 and departure gate for LH6676, time taken to transit between these 2 gates. And, do i need to undergo immigration & security check. If yes, how much additional travel time will it take. Thanks
You will just go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks !!
We will be arriving into FRA from Johannesburg (business class) and 5 hours later, departing for Edinburgh (economy class). This is on the same booking. I believe we will have access to the Welcome Lounge but are we able to use it given we are in transit? I believe that the lounge is in the public area. Thank you.
Will be arriving from Vancouver and transit to Johannesburg on Lufthansa flight operated by South African Airways. Are these type of flights arriving and leaving from one terminal. Or do I have to go through security ad passport control,
Both flights will be in Terminal 1. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
