    Arriving CDG-FRA on Air france then taking a separate itinerary on Cathay FRA-HKG. is 2 hours 20 minutes sufficient?


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your Paris flight is on-time. You will have to claim your bags from Air France and re-check them with Cathay.

    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.


  • 1 hour layover BRU-FRA to FRA-PEK
    Jan 14, 2016
    Arriving from BRU to FRA and connecting to FRA - PEK in only 1 hour. Sufficient or better take an earlier flight BRU-FRA?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation it's possible but leaves no room to spare. If you can book an earlier flight I'd try to do that.


  • Transfer

    Hello, I just want to ask you about transfer between two flights. I will arrive on FRA airport (Terminal 1) and I have only one hour for my transfer to another flight to Arlanda (Sweden) - also terminal 1. Is one hour all right for this transfer?


    Where are you flying to FRA from?

    I'm travelling from United Kingdom (Manchester) to Brazil (Rio de Jeniero) through Frankfurt in Lufthansa Flight. My Outbound journey is on 24th November & flight &number is 'LH 947' which land in terminal one in Frankfurt and connection flight from terminal 1 to GIG (Rio de janiero).The transit interval is 1hour 40 minutes. My inbound journey is on 30th November from GIG (Rio de Janiero) and land in Frankfurt in terminal 1 in flight number 'LH 501'. The next flight is to Munich from terminal 1 itself - flight number LH 106 and from Munich to Manchester. My passport is Indian and hold a valid visa for UK and my final destination Brazil. To travel through Germany for this transit do i need a Schengen Visa or a transit Visa??. Please respond to my urgent query


    Am I correct in that on your return you are flying GIG-FRA-MUC-MAN? If so you will need a Schengen visa for that segment because your FRA-MUC segment will be within the Schengen zone.

    Hi, I will be travelling through LH 755 from Bengaluru and arriving at Frankfurt Terminal 1 at 8.55 a.m. I have to catch ICE 612 at 11.09 a.m for travelling to Siegburg/Bonn. The time gap is 2 hrs 10 min. Is this time enough for me to complete the formalities at airport (immigration and baggage collection) and catch this train? How far is Terminal 1 to this train station and what is the route I have to follow for quick transit?

  • Different terminal arrivals - where to meet
    Feb 25, 2014
    I will be arriving on terminal 1 at 5:25am and co-worker from terminal 2 at 6:15. I have the rental car in my name. Can my co-worker get to the rental car for terminal 1? Will they have to go thru immigrations/customs first? Terminal 1 is so large will it take me longer to get thru security? Any eating/sitting areas in the terminal 1 rental car area?


    I presume that both of you arrive at FRA from countries other than the U.S. (All US arrivals arrive & are being processed at Satellite A (T1A). Therefore, I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text, which also includes transfer options between terminals & meeting points. T1 & T2 house rental car counters for different agencies - you may want to meet there.
