I'm travelling to India from USA via Frankfurt. I have a layover of 1 hour and 35 mins at frankfurt. It would be really nice if someone can tell me how much time it takes to walk from Terminal 1 Z gates to Terminal 1 C gates?

Thanks in advance

  • How was your experience in reaching from a Z-gate to a C-gate in Frankfurt Airport's Terminal 1?

  • As Hilmar mentioned below, Z is very long. It took 15-20 mins of brisk walking to reach terminal 1 C gate.

C and Z are unfortunately on opposite sides of Terminal 1, so it is quite a bit of a hike. Exact walking time depends on gate location (Z is very long) and your walking speed. I'd say 15-20 minutes.

Your best shot is probably to take the airside section of the SkyLine https://www.frankfurt-airport.com/en/travel/transfer.detail.suffix.html/article/travel/terminal-transfer/terminal-transfer-via-skyline.html I'm not sure that there is an airside walking connection anyway.

  • Thanks Hilmar. Is 1 hour 35 mins layover enough at frankfurt airport?

  • @Shrirang: Depends on the details: If it's a single ticket with interlined bags, than this should be fine unless there are some major delays. If it is two separate tickets, this would be extremely difficult to make

  • yeah I'm travelling on a single ticket with interlined bags. Do I have to go through security check at frankfurt while changing the concourse?

  • I don't think so. I believe the SkyLine has an airside connection between Z and C but it's an unusual connection and I've never done it myself
