Flying from Frankfurt Airport: How early should we arrive?

Jump to last reply

We are flying Air Canada to Ottawa on Sunday Nov 3 around 1 PM from this airport.

We will arrive at FRA on Saturday and take the S bahn train downtown, for an overnight hotel stay. We will travel via S bahn to the airport on Sunday.

We plan to do online check in from the hotel, to ensure we maintain our assigned seats. I realize we should re confirm the departure gate when we arrive at the airport.

We will each have one rolling suitcase to check at FRA - small enough (22 inches?) that we might be able to carry it onboard, in a time crunch.

How long before the departure time should we be at the airport? All threads about FRA seem to be about transfers, not departures on single flights. Thanks.
