I am flying Lufthansa and I have a three hour layover in Frankfurt from my flight from Atlanta and then I go on to Rome. Is there enough time to go to the lounge or would you advise against it? What are some good ideas for things to do at Frankfurt during our connection?
I am having flight from Ljubljana to Toronto with connection in Frankfurt. Plane arrives to Frankfurt at 8:25 and then departures from Frankfurt at 9:20 AM. Is 55 min layover enough for international flight?
That should be just enough time if the flight from Ljubljana is on-time.
Thanks Zap, yeah i also think it is doable. i have JP116 flight that comes to terminal 1. Due to small plane there is no gate but need to take the bus. I then go with AirCanada 873 flight that is also terminal 1, gate B ...so should be doable ....i am little worried above the baggage might not make it :=. . Adria flights are usually on-time --> as per last month stats earliest arrival was at 8:08, while latest was 8:38 ....but most were on site around 8:20AM https://flightaware.com/live/flight/ADR116
I am travelling on 1 ticket from London with B.A via Frankfurt to Namibia with Air Namibia. The layover time is 1hr & 15 mins. is this enough time? Do I have to collect my luggage and check in again as I am using 2 different airlines? Thanks for any advice.
I would be having a 7 hrs layover at FRA on my way to Orlando on single ticket by Lufthansa from Nigeria. Would I need to collect my luggage at FRA? Would I have to stay within the Airport premises for the 7 hours lay over as I would be traveling with my kids?
No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage. Unless you have a German visitor visa you have to stay inside the airport.
Thanks. But I would have places to relax for the lay over period ?
Yes, FRA Terminal 1 has many amenities in the international transit area.
I came across an interesting Facebook page promoting a cheap (99 cents!) eBook titled "The Long Layover Guide to Frankfurt and the Frankfurt Airport". Appears to be a useful guide for travelers who have a few hours of transit time.
