Frankfurt - Public Transport

TRAIN:

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

AIRail Service to Cologne and Stuttgart

The AIRail Service is a trend-setting joint-venture intermodal service offered by the AIRail partners Deutsche Lufthansa, Deutsche Bahn AG (German Rail) and Frankfurt Airport.

Connections

from / to

Köln Hbf / Frankfurt Airport

Frankfurt Airport / Köln Hbf

Stuttgart Hbf / Frankfurt Airport

Frankfurt Airport / Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof

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.

Easy booking

Or simply call the Lufthansa Call Center at telephone: +49 (0) 1803 803803.

Holiday parking

Holiday Parking: Unbeatable Convenience at Special Low Rates.

Park inexpensively right at Frankfurt Airport: one week* of parking during the low season starts at only EUR 54 and in the high season at just EUR 64.

Drive straight to the parking lot in the south of the airport and park on one of over 1000 spaces. Our free shuttle bus then takes you to either terminal at any time of the day or night. The easy-to-find shuttle stops are right next to the parking lot. Please plan for sufficient time to park your car and transfer to the terminal. And when you return from your holiday, you can board the shuttle bus at either terminal to retrieve your vehicle. This offer is also ideal for spur-of-the-moment travelers looking for affordable parking.

Easy to find and convenient to reach:

From the A5 motorway south of the Frankfurt cloverleaf ("Frankfurter Kreuz"), follow the signs for "CargoCity Süd", then for "Holiday Parking". You'll be guided straight to the parking lot.

(Depending on availability. If the parking lot is full, sufficient parking is still available at both terminals. Please note, however, that different prices are charged there.)

Special parking spaces

We've thought of everyone and everything.

Parking spaces for women

Parking spaces for motorcycles

Parking spaces for the physically disadvantaged

XXL parking spaces

Parking spaces for women: so you'll be calm and relaxed.

We've made a point of choosing special parking rows in the best possible locations. You'll find them in the underground parking garage at Terminal 1, where you can access them via entrances P1 (row 126), P4 (row 225) and P5 (row 326). To make sure you find them easily, the entrances are colored white and marked by signs. Plus: if you plan ahead and book online, our online rates for early bookers let you save up to 53% of the parking fees. (At the moment this service is available in german only)

Parking spaces for motorcycles: a good place to park your bike.

You can park your motorbike here completely free of charge. It's easy to find: on the arrivals driveway for Terminal 1, at the end of Section C.

Parking spaces for the physically disadvantaged: to make things easier for you.

We have done our best to make things easier for passengers with restricted mobility: for example, you can park free of charge in front of the terminals for getting in or out of your vehicle, unloading and loading. Just make sure to place your handicapped ID in plain sight behind the windshield. There are also special parking spaces in the parking building to the right of Terminal 1 in Section A opposite the departures level. Or in the underground parking facility of Terminal 2, where you can reach reserved spaces via entrance P8: go to level U4, row 17.

There is of course also handicapped-friendly access to the check-in halls.

Another way you can benefit: you can conveniently reserve a parking space from home online and save up to 53%. With the online rates for early bookers. Make your reservation early to save as much as possible!

Click this sentence for more information on passengers with restricted mobility.

You can conveniently access the terminals from motorways A3 and A5 and highway B43. The entrances to the parking facilities are right in front of the terminals.

XXL parking spaces: enough space to meet the biggest needs.

Even if your vehicle takes up a lot of space, you don't have to leave it at home or park far from the airport. Parking area P36 in front of Terminal 1 offers plenty of room for your van, car with trailer or extra-high vehicle.

Park & Rail

Travel without the stress of downtown parking and crowds.

It's much nicer to transfer from your car to an ICE train at the airport's long-distance railway station than it is to fight the crowds and traffic downtown: take advantage of over 15,000 public parking spaces open around the clock and short, roofed-over paths that take you quickly and conveniently to the station. Its central location very near the Frankfurt motorway interchange (Frankfurter Kreuz), plus frequent train services (174 long-distance trains stop here every day), saves you time and reduces stress. It takes only 57 minutes to get to downtown Cologne, 73 minutes to Stuttgart. It's a great way to go.

And if you're planning to take the train to your holiday destination, you can save up to 53% of the parking fees by taking advantage of our online rates for early bookers! (At the moment this service is available in german only)

Premium parking

More security and service for your car.

If you want to make absolutely sure that your car is safe while you're traveling, the Fraport partner "Airport Car Service" (ACS) offers guarded parking and various other services. It doesn't matter whether you're flying or taking the train. In any case, you can expect a service that is not only exclusive but also flexible and quick.

Corporate Parking

Perfect for companies and frequent flyers.

Corporate parking gives you greater convenience and reduces your parking costs. It can often happen that several of your employees need parking spaces several times a month. Our concept is designed to meet this need. It offers companies and frequent flyers the opportunity to rent fixed parking spaces on a long-term basis. Plus: more than one vehicle can be registered on each card. This lets you make the best possible use of each one, yielding significant savings. Whenever one of your people parks at the airport more than three days a month, you're saving compared to the regular rates. You pay only 184 euros plus VAT for each Corporate Parking Card. And you benefit in more ways, because you get to take advantage of convenient parking: direct access to Terminal 1, there's no need to search for a space, and you can go straight to the gate or train without getting wet and having to walk long distances. Nor do you have to wait to pay afterwards.

If you have questions on corporate parking or would like us to make you an individual offer, our parking office is open Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

We'll be glad to advise you — call us at +49 (0) 1805 690 609 0

Fraport Hands Over Site to Lufthansa for Building A380 Maintenance Base at FRA

31.10.2005

70/2005

FRA/rap> As per agreement, Fraport AG today handed over to Lufthansa the cleared development site at the southern side of Frankfurt Airport (FRA) where the airline will construct a new maintenance base for its future fleet of A380 superjumbo jets. Fraport's executive board vice chairman Prof. Manfred Schölch said, "We have completed all of the necessary prerequisites for construction of this maintenance base to begin in November." Schölch added that, in addition to the new hangar, the maintenance base will include a warehouse, a ramp area with aircraft parking stands, a taxiway, and a rainwater retention basin.

At the beginning of September, the German Federal Administrative High Court (BVG) in Leipzig confirmed the Hesse Administrative High Court's (HVG) decision of June 28 regarding zoning approval for the planned A380 maintenance base at FRA. As a result, Fraport AG began site clearing (cutting trees, etc.) on September 12.

Fraport AG's land utilization agreement with Lufthansa for the site at the southern side of the airport, which is now ready for construction, runs for a period of 65 years. Lufthansa is investing about €150 million for the new A380 maintenance base – the largest industrial hall in Germany – at its Frankfurt home airport.

Fraport's main customer Lufthansa has ordered a total of 15 Airbus superjumbos as future "flagships" of the Lufthansa fleet. The first four A380s, each having a capacity of 555 passengers, are expected to go into scheduled service with Lufthansa at the start of the Summer Timetable 2008.
