1 hour overlay at Frankfurt international airport


I will be on a Lufthansa flight from Washington DC to Istanbul with one hour overlay in Frankfurt International Airport. Do i have enough time to make my connection flight? Will there be security check or passport control? Will my checked-in luggage make it to the Istanbul airport?

I'm wondering if 1 hour overlay will be ok for international travel?

If it wasn't ok Lufthansa wouldn't sell that connection. Minimum connex time for international frights at FRA is 45 minutes and since you will stay in the transit, won't have passport control or anything you should have more than enough time to walk from one gate to the other. Luggage will be checked through to your final destination.
