I have 1h 15 min layover in FRA, arriving from ATL and leaving to MAA,. Do I need to change terminals and go through passport control?
If both flights are on Lufthansa all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
My ATL - FRA leg in on Delta and my FRA - MAA on Lufthansa
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
1 reservation and no checked bags
Then you can just take the Skyline train to Terminal 1 and should have enough time.
Awesome! Thanks 'ZAP'!
Greetings, I fly from Budapest to Tokyo with 1 h layover in Frankfurt. 1st flight is operated by Lufthansa, 2nd by ANA (both Star Alliance members). Is that layover time enough? Both flights are set at Terminal 1. Will they automatically take care of my luggage? I am EU-citizen leaving Schengen
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate.
Thank you!
