I have a flight from SFO to MUC to FLR. In MUC, I transfer from United Airlines to Air Dolomiti. There is only a 45 minute connection time. United insisted this was enough of a connection time. Can anyone confirm if this seems accurate? Do you know if there be a terminal change or passport and security issues?
That is just enough time if everything is on-time. it's all in the same terminal. You just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
I am traveling to MUC from the USA on one airline with a checked bag and then connecting to Athens on a different airline. Is 2-1/2 hours enough layover time to go from T2, get my checked bag, go through immigration and make the connection from in T1 on time?

Is there anything else I need to do or be aware of for my connection in MUC?
You will have to walk between terminals. That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Need to know how long the customs process is, as well as how long it takes to "run" from the United gates in Terminal 2 to the Lufthansa gates in Terminal 2. Our schedule allows only one hour between arrival from EWR (Newark, NJ) on United to departure to ATH (Athens) via Lufthansa. Flight was booked entirely on United Airlines website.
It's possible but leaves very little time to spare. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate
Thank you very much for that.. Flying in an easterly direction, we're hoping that we won't have too much of a head wind and will land on time.
Arriving from LHR into T2, need to connect on separate ticket with EY to AUH out of T1.
Connection time 3h 25min, so not worried about that.

What do I need to do upon arrival in MUC? Go through passport control and collect baggage? Is there a shuttle or way to transport luggage from T2 to T1? I know it'll probably be a hassle, but this made the most sense for my ticketing needs.
Just trying to get an idea of what to expect so as few shocks and headaches as possible.

Thank you for your time
Yes, you will go through passport control and collect your baggage. You then actually have to walk from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 through the airport train station. There's no shuttle or train.
Thank you. How far would you say is the walk? Do you know if there are any porter services available?
I doubt you could get a porter to make that walk. It's probably about 15 minutes.
I'm travelling Munich to Bangalore, having 90mins transit time, is that enough to catch the flight from Munich
What is your full route? What airline are you on?
I am flying into Munich from Rome on LH and have 1 hour 20 minutes to transfer to AC flt to Toronto. Do I have enough time?
Yes, that is enough time, All you have to do is go through schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate.
I'm traveling from London Heathrow to Munich where I have 1 hour to connect to a flight to Naples Italy. Both fights are Lufthansa at Terminal 1. Is that enough time to make the connecting flight?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I know it's been asked countless times, but once again please - I'm still not clear....

Flying Toronto - Munich - Krakow on Lufthansa. I understand on arrival in Munich I have to go through the Schengen Entry passport control. Is this simply showing my passport? Lufthansa has only
45 minutes between flights. Is this sufficient time? Everything happens in Terminal 2 but how far is it from the Arrival gate to my Departure gate? Much appreciate your help. Thanx!
yes, that is just showing your passport (and maybe answering a few questions). You have just enough time if it goes smoothly.
Flying LH from SFO to Munich with a 55 min layover I will then fly LH to Ham ! Will I have enough time to go Thur passport control and security! My arrival gate is in terminal 2 and my departure gate is also terminal 2
I am flying from LAX to MUC on LH and have a 55 min layover for my next flight - MUC to Florence, Italy. It is an LH flight but operated by Air Dolomiti. We will have checked bags and these are 2 separate reservations but both on LH. Do we have enough time to make it? LH says yes and that they should be able to check our bags in LA to Florence. thanks.
