Flying BIZ LH YVR to FRA then to FCO

Flying BIZ LH YVR to FRA then to FCO

  1. Ali5*

    Hello – I’m flying LH BIZ from YVR to FRA with an 8 hr layover and then onto FCO on LH BIZ. Wondered if anyone would know which LH BIZ Lounge would be the closest? I also don’t understand the Schengen situation coming from Canada and going onto Italy. Thank you.

    Welcome [USER=4300]@Ali5*[/USER] – the lounge situation will depend on what lounges are closest to your arrival and departure gates. You can look at Flight Aware to see if you can see a pattern as to what gates you’re most likely to be flying into/out of but that’s about all you can do for now.

    As for the Schengen area, what it really means is that once you go through passport control into the Schengen area, as long as your flight is within the Schengen zone it’s treated as a domestic flight and you won’t have to go through immigration again at your final destination. Since Germany and Italy are both in the Schengen zone once you clear Customs in Germany you won’t have to do it again in Italy.

    Thank you MidSouth Skier for the info. Do you happen to know what would happen if we left the airport and went to a day room at the Sheraton? Would it be easy to come back into the Airport and go to the Gate? Or would you not advise this. Thanks again

    You should be fine doing that. Since Germany & Italy are both Schengen countries, it’s basically like flying domestically here in the US.
