I will be coming from Muenster and connecting in Frankfurt to SFO. The flight from Muenster arrives in Terminal 1 and the flight to SFO leaves from same terminal. Will 1 hr 10 minutes be enough. What does this entail in regards to leaving EU for US?
Do I need to pick up and recheck luggage? Passport control?
I'm flying from Toulouse to Frankfurt with LH1099 (18:55-20:40 in terminal 1) and Frankfurt to Singapore with LH778 (21:50 in Terminal 1 -17:05)

Before make my booking, want to know... can I do this in 1 hour and 10 minutes ???? And how???

Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time, especially later in the evening like that.
Arriving on Lufthansa from San Francisco in terminal 1 going to Lisbon on Lufthansa terminal 1,can I do this in 1 hour and 45 minutes ????
Yes, you just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. That's enough time.
I'm arriving at FRA at 11:25 with SAS 635, terminal 1. Departing to Calgary with Air Canada 845 at 13:30, terminal 1. I don't know which concourses. How do I best get in between the flights and how long does it take?
Sincerely,
Maria
Just follow signs to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying in to Frankfurt on American Airlines on 1 ticket. I bought a separate ticket on Adria Airways to get me to Kosovo. I have a checked bag, so after immigration, and retrieving my bag and exiting customs, where do I find Adria Airways in order to check into that flight? I’ll have 3 hours in between my flights. Any tips on getting through immigration and customs since I am not staying in Germany?
You have to take the skyline train to Terminal 1 to go to the Adria check in desk, then go through Schengen Exit passport control and security to get to your departure gate.
I will be flying on Croatia Airlines arriving at Terminal 1. My connecting flight to Philadelphia, USA leaves from Terminal 2 one hour later. Is this enough time to transfer to Terminal 2? Do I need to go through security again? I have a Global Traveler designation.
Thank you
That's not realistically enough time.
IS 1+55 ENOUGH? Does Croatia Airlines have a baggage agreement with American Airlines or must i get my bags at FRA?
1 hr 55 is still really pushing it. American Airlines and Croatia Airlines do have a bag agreement but they won't check your bags through if you purchase two separate reservations.
Connecting through Frankfurt. One reservation and both flights are with Lufthansa, JFK-FRA-Tirana, Albania.
Will there be passport control and security in Frankfurt?
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area and coming from the US, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Frankfurt on the way to Tirana.
We will be flying from Seattle on KLM and need to then get to Croatia Air - what terminal's are the in and is 1 hr long enough to get from one to the other??? Thank You
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
it would be 2 reseveration thank you
Croatia Airlines in in Terminal 1, KLM is in Terminal 2. However KLM does not fly from Seattle to Frankfurt, so please double check your reservation.
We are arriving on a Lufthansa flight from Basel to Frankfurt to catch a flight home. We have 95 min. to board our Air Canada flight at the Frankfurt airport. Is that sufficient time to gather luggage and clear security?
You don't have to do anything with your luggage or go through security. Just go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate.
Thanks for the information on making that connection.
I am very confused by the info available on the Frankfurt airport web site. Our arrival from Montreal seems to be in Terminal 1B. Our departure to Chennai is indicated as C15 (no terminal number?).

Furthermore, the airport maps use different terms (concourse A, area C, terminal 1, main terminal)... I'm totally lost.

Since we'll have a very tight connection, I hope to have early info on where we need to rush to, and how (bus? walk/run?).

Has anyone deciphered the Frankfurt airport map??

Huge thanks.
