Frankfurt FRA Airport Overview
Frankfurt Airport FRA - owned & operated by Fraport AG - is a major European hub for Airlines across the globe, the majority of which are Lufthansa & its Star Alliance partners. The Airport has its own long-distance AIRail station and a regional train station right under Terminal 1, connecting travelers to all points within Germany, as well as to Europe. In 2010 Skytrax gave Frankfurt Airport a four-star ranking, and in 2013 voted it the 'World’s Most Improved Airport' .
FRA Airport is located within city limits, and only 12 km southwest of Frankfurt's city center, in the Rhine-Main area of Germany, and connected by Autobahn intersection 'Frankfurter Kreuz', where motorways A3 and A5 meet; it is also accessible via motorway A67 (follow airplane signs to the terminals).
With four long runways and an estimated 60 million passengers annually, Frankfurt Airport is secondary hub to Lufthansa and hub to Condor Flugdienst, and is served by a host of national & international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe. Note that flights are banned between 11pm and 5am.
Passengers arriving at the AIRail Terminal from a long-distance train can check in there up to 45 mininutes prior to scheduled departure (at the counter near the tracks and the walkway to Terminal 1). You can also get your boarding card at the self-service kiosks near the check-in counters (check with your airline first).
