Hi all:

I was given an itinerary which has a change in Frankfurt to Croatia Airlines to Split. But I am worried because the layover in Frankfurt is 55 minutes. The booking agent assures me it is a "legal connection." That will be small consolation when I miss my connection.

Is 55 minutes enough time to make this connection?

Thanks.

55 minutes is generally enough time to make a connection - unless you are having to clear customs upon coming onto the continent from somewhere else, like Jamaica.

You don't mention where your arrival is coming from. If you are fit and fast, you could probably navigate from one end of FRA to another in way less than 55 minutes, and still have time to get some apple wine! Good luck and enjoy Split.

Shouldn't be a problem. As long as you are traveling on to Croatia, customs would be done in Split, not Frankfurt. Was thinking in reverse above, as in coming to the US and making a connection to another US city, customs would be done at the first stop. But you're not connecting to another German city, so 55 minutes ought to be plenty of time... or at least a big enough window to get you on board Croatia Airlines without any worries.

if you're lucky enough your connection could be less than 20minutes  Smile IAD flights usually arrives at the remote so you'll be bussed to Bus Arrivals B (where the gate B50-B59 are located) and from there you just go one escalator upstairs to section B20-28 or B40-B48 for your Croatia flight (they are leaving from there very often).

But if you're unlucky you could arrive with UA at C and have to walk (or drive) to A which could take a lot of time!

As long as you're over the permitted MCT (what is sometimes referred to as a "legal connection"), the airlines are responsible for rebooking you in case of a missed connection: in case your flight from IAD arrives here too late, just walk up to any LH transfer desk and have them sort out the rest.

Hola!

55 minutes should be OK... I have done connections with this amount of time with my father, in his 80s and a slow walker, and we have always managed to walk from Terminal A to B and vice-versa... it is just right as you get there when almost everybody is already sitting inside the aircraft and there is no wait at the gate... very convenient.

Salut!

Roger

Thanks for the responses, guys. I will not worry about it then. A shame I will not have enough time to do anything in Frankfurt.

Arrived recently 7:01 (sitting in the back of the plane I left the plane at around 7:20) from EWR and had a connection flight at 7:55. Even though I had a very long walk I managed on time. Also I had to go through security and passport check once again (which was however very efficient in FRA). I even had time to write some sms...

If your flight isn't coming in way too late you should be allright.

Oh, well that's a surprise. What about MUC? My return flight connects in MUC.

Thanks. My experience I hope mirrors yours.

Well, Munich is certainly a more interesting place to visit.
But MUC is faaaaaar away from downtown Munich. It takes you at least 45 mins each way (that is the pure travelling time on the train) + the time you need to walk to/from the train station and purchasing a ticket which makes a 1h one-way journey all in all together...

So, it depends how much time you got to spend...

My layover is three hours. Not enough time to go into town to do anything. I guess i will just stay in the airport. I hope ther is enough there to keep me occupied.
