Fast FRA transfers between train and plane

February 24, 2014 Airport No Comments Email Email

Excellently networked: Besides being one of the world`s largest aviation hubs, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is renowned for being well-connected by rail – with numerous regional and national destinations in Germany, plus international destinations in neighboring countries.


At FRA, it couldn`t be easier or more convenient to transfer from a flight to a train, or vice versa. It`s just a few steps away from the passenger terminals to FRA`s Long-distance Train Station, where more than 170 high-speed ICE (InterCityExpress) trains stop each day. In addition, more than 200 local and regional trains serve the Regional Train Station located directly below Terminal 1: whisking passengers to and from the city of Frankfurt as well as to other places throughout the Rhine-Main region.

Fraport, the airport company, provides check-in services for various airlines from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m, while Lufthansa also operates counters from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily for its flights and other carriers. Fraport`s new rail services brochure contains information on the participating airlines, check-in times, and traveling by train. Copies can be picked up at information stands around the terminals, or the brochure can be read and downloaded at

The expansion of AIRail services is part of the “Great to Have You Here!” quality service program that Fraport launched at Frankfurt Airport several years ago – to introduce a wide range of enhancements for making departing, arriving and transferring even more pleasant for passengers at Germany`s largest aviation hub. In 2013, Frankfurt Airport welcomed more than 58 million air passengers.
