Frankfurt Airport (FRA)

Frankfurt Airport, known in German as Flughafen Frankfurt Main or Rhein-Main-Flughafen is an international airport located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. There are plans to expand Frankfurt Airport with a fourth runway and a new Terminal 3. First modifications to the airport to make it Airbus A380 compatible are completed, including the first building of a large A380 maintenance facility near the former U.S. Air Base. Frankfurt is a hub of Lufthansa, the German national carrier and Air India for its North American services. Lufthansa's secondary hub is Munich Airport where many key medium and long haul routes are available, lessening the need to overburden Frankfurt Airport.

By Car:
The motorways A 3, A 67 and A 5 lead straight to Frankfurt Airport. Follow the signs for the airport (an airport icon) and then for Terminal 1 or 2 as required. Please note that you can only briefly stop right in front of the arrival areas of both terminals. It is therefore a better idea to use the parking facilities.

By train & bus:
Train station location:
DB TravelCenter (Reisezentrum) in Terminal 1, B Concourse, Level 0.
Ticket machines in Terminal 1, Level 0.

Let Yourself Be Chauffeured. A sufficient number of taxis is available around the clock at both terminals.
Cost of a trip to or from central Frankfurt: about 20 euros.
Time required: between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
When arriving at Frankfurt Airport, tell the taxi driver the name of your airline. You'll then be "automatically" taken to the right terminal and dropped off near your check-in counter.
Tip: During rush hour, ask the driver in advance to quote you a fixed price from the airport to your hotel in central Frankfurt (it should be around 25 euros).
