Frankfurt-Main Airport

Frankfurt Airport is the largest German airport and also its own separate district of Frankfurt am Main. For decades Frankfurt airport has not only been one of the most important aviation hubs in mainland Europe, but even worldwide. By annual passenger volume, it is the third largest passenger airport in Europe after London-Heathrow and Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Plans by the airport company Fraport AG provide for substantial investment in the airport’s infrastructure in order to cope with the future growth in traffic and also to maintain competitiveness. These include the construction of a A380 hangar. The first phase of construction was completed in 2008. A new 2,800 m long runway is to be built in the northwest of the airport, which will be taken into operation in time for the winter flight schedule in 2011. Terminal 3 is expected to be opened in 2018. Reason for the plans is the expected growth in traffic per year from currently 490,000 to about 700,000 in 2010.

There are also plans to expand the Cargocity area by 27 hectares. At the same time, a new district will be created by 2016 - Gateway Gardens. Besides offices, conference and exhibition centres, the area will also inlcude catering, retail and leisure facilities. These will be close to the ICE railway station and have their own S-Bahn. The largest industrial park is being planned in the Mönchhof Gelände, and this will also have a direct transport link to the airport as well as space for the airline companies.

Rhine-Main airport is located about 12 km or 8 miles southwest of downtown Frankfurt. Motorists can reach the terminals on the A3, A5, A67 and B43.

Incoming buses stop at the bus station by Terminal 1, just in front of the arrivals halls and outside the arrivals hall at Terminal 2 on the second level. The SkyLine shuttle also operates regularly between the terminals.

Between the regional airport at Terminal 1 and the main train station, several regional trains operated by Deutsche Bahn also provide a service along with the S-Bahn lines S8 and S9. The AIRTERMINAL airport train station is served by ICE and IC trains (DB intercity trains).

Also known as the Rhein-Main Airport, Frankfurt Airport was first in use in 1936 and is now the largest aviation hub in Germany. The airport played a central role during the Berlin blockade, and was a bridgehead of the Berlin Airlift of 1948-49. The airlift memorial, also called Hungerkralle (hunger claw) reminds of the flights of the so-called Rosinenbomber (Raisin Bombers) and has its counterpart at the airport Berlin-Tempelhof.

In the 1950s and 60s, the north runway was expanded and Terminal 1 and a third runway also built. Terminal 2 was opened in 1994 and the train station in 1999. In May 2009, work was begun on constructing a new runway.
