More information about Frankfurt Airport

The busiest route from Frankfurt Airport is served by flights from Frankfurt to Berlin-Tegel which are operated by Lufthansa and Air Berlin, flights to Hamburg (Lufthansa) and London Heathrow (British Airways and Lufthansa) are also very popular. Flights from Frankfurt to the USA are operated by Delta or Lufthansa for example flying to New York, or from Frankfurt to Washington by Lufthansa and United Airlines.

The airport Rhine-Main was first in use in 1936. At this time it was used by Zeppelins along with aircraft. During the Second World War, international airlines withdrew from Frankfurt airport and the airport was then used only by the military. After the arrival of US forces in March 1945 and the surrender of Germany one and a half months later, the heavily damaged airport was rebuilt. Only a year later civilian flights were once again being operated from Frankfurt/Main. Passenger numbers increased in subsequent years and new runways were built. In 1965, building work on Terminal 1 began, which was finally opened in 1972 by Gustav Heinemann who was the German President at the time. Terminal 1 consisted of three departure and arrivals areas. Further airport expansion was accompanied by massive protests by residents. Despite these protests, Frankfurt airport was expanded in the following years with further construction work in 1994 when Terminal 2 was opened with two departure and arrivals halls. In 1999, the airports own long distance railway station was opened which was served by intercity and regional trains enabling a more convenient connection to the German rail network. Previously, the airport could only be reached using local city trains S8 and S9 and some regional services to the regional airport station.
