I'm traveling from USA to Tel Aviv via FRA with only an hour layover, is that enough time?
How long does it take to walk from the airport railway staion to Terminal One Level 3?
I will have connecting flights from US to Nice with Lufthansa. My dog is in the cabin and will need relief from 10 hour flight. Does FRA have an animal relief area and if so, is it in the terminal like DFW?
do checked bags from US to TLV via FRA get transferred directly to TLV flight? Do travelers in transit have to clear any passport control? 1hr 30min connecting time sufficient if no inbound delays?
All you have to do in Frnakfurt if both flights are on Lufthansa is go directly to your departure gate where there will be Israeli security. You have enough time.
We are flying from Rome to Dallas-Fort Worth on Lufthansa. The scheduled connection time in Frankfurt is 60 minutes. Assuming the planes are on time is this enough time to make the connection.
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi there,

I am flying with Air Canada arriving from Tegel airport Berlin and have an hour and 15 minutes to transfer and catch a flight to Toronto Pearson via Air Canada. Do I need to collect my bags and go through security for this and is there enough time? Thanks in advance,
DT
Arriving on Lufthansa, have a 1 Hr 20 minute layover and leave on Condor to Seattle USA. Are the 2 airlines in the same terminal and will we have enough time to make our connection?
We also have the option of having a 5 hour layover. Would that be a better flight to choose?
Yes, Condor and Lufthansa both use Terminal 1. If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. If it's two separate reservations you need the longer layover.
Hello, I'm flying from USA to Frankfurt with Condor, then with 2 hours layover I have a connection flight to Moscow operated by Airflot. Do I need a transit visa to get to my next flight in Frankfurt?
Thanks.
What is your citizenship?
Kazakhstan
Unless you are traveling with no checked bags it appears you will have to transfer them yourself between Condor and Aeroflot, which means you will need a Short-Stay Schengen Visa issued by Germany.
Arrival to Frankfurt Airport Terminal 1 is by Singapore Airlines from New York, then connecting from Frankfurt Terminal 1 to Munich via Lufthansa flight. Do we need to clear bags/luggage at Frankfurt? Connection time is 1.5 hours. Will there be enough time?
Flying Denver-Fra and then Fra-Tel Aviv on Lufthansa with 2 hour layover. Do I need to go through customs/passport control in Fra? Will my luggage be checked straight to Tel Aviv?
No, since you are not entering the Schengen Area there is no passport control in Frankfurt. You will just go to the gate where there will be special Israeli security. You won't have to do anything with your bags.
