Way to/from the terminal
Frankfurt Airport has two railway stations
The long-distance railway station is at the AIRail Terminal, right next to Terminal 1. Trains arrive at and depart from platforms 4 to 7.
In addition, there is a local railway station for S-Bahn, regional and local trains at Terminal 1, Level 1. Trains arrive at and depart from platforms 1 to 3.
Both railway stations are linked to Terminal 2 via buses and the Sky Line. This is how you get there
From the platform (Level 0, Area B) go one floor higher up, following signs to Terminal 2. When in Area B or C, get on a free Shuttle Bus to Terminal 2. The service runs between 05:00 and 03:00 hrs (5am to 3am). Alternatively, follow signs to the Sky Line in Hall B. This service to Terminal 2 runs at 2-minute intervals.
Important: You are not permitted to take trolleys onto a Sky Line train.
AIRail Service to Cologne and Stuttgart

Seamless Transfer between the train and the plane
The service allows you to check-in for your Lufthansa flight directly at the central train stations of Cologne or Stuttgart. The Lufthansa check-in desks are signposted and easy to find. You check in your flight baggage just like you would at the airport and receive the boarding pass for your flight . All flight baggage will be checked through to your final destination. Baggage may also be checked in the night before your flight. Check-in deadline is 20 minutes before departure of your ICE train to Frankfurt Airport.
It goes without saying that this service operates in either direction. Upon your return, you do not have to reclaim your baggage before you have reached Cologne or Stuttgart, respectively. That is also where customs control will take place.
Service frequencies and travel times
Travel time between Cologne central station and the long-distance train station at Frankfurt Airport is only 57 minutes, and between Stuttgart central station and Frankfurt Airport 73 minutes. With 16 daily ICE-train connections from Cologne and 7 daily connections from Stuttgart, there is a well-timed feeder service for practically every international Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt Airport.
AIRail passengers have reserved seats on the ICE train. Passengers flying first or business class travel first class and passengers flying economy class travel second class on the train.
You can book the AIRail Service worldwide directly with any travel agent who is an authorized Lufthansa agent.
Or simply call the Lufthansa Call Center at telephone: +49 (0) 1803 803803.
