Frankfurt am Main Airport

Despite the city's relatively small size, Frankfurt am Main is Germany's busiest airport and Europe's fourth largest in terms of passenger numbers. With flights to more than 100 countries, Frankfurt am Main boasts the largest number of international destinations of any airport in the world.


Frankfurt am Main is split between two major terminals, plus one smaller terminal that's set aside for first class passengers with Lufthansa. Rather than being split by domestic and international flights, the terminals in Frankfurt are divided by airlines and alliances.


Terminal 1 is the bigger of the two, and is used by Lufthansa and other members of the Star Alliance (such as Air Canada, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways). The terminal has three levels – the top floor for departures and check-in desks, the middle floor for arrivals, and the lower floor for access to trains and car parking. 


Terminal 2 deals with oneworld airlines (such as British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Finnair) and the SkyTeam alliance (such as Air France, Delta and KLM), as well as unaffiliated airlines such as Emirates and Etihad. 


The two terminals are linked by SkyLine trains and buses. Both options are complimentary and it takes just a few minutes to make the journey, with regular departures throughout the hour.
