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 www.frankfurt-airport.com/content/frankfurt_airport/en/misc/container/TraintoPlaneFlyer/jcr:content.file/fra_traintoplane_60_l01.pdf

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.
