Any business activity relies on the right infrastructure. At Frankfurt Airport, experts from various disciplines work together in a spirit of mutual trust to successfully bring to fruition challenging large-scale construction projects. These projects are as multifaceted as the passengers and visitors who come to the airport. Construction above and below ground, structural engineering, modernization work, and road and tunnel construction all make an important contribution to the “Gute Reise” mission statement.
Frankfurt Airport is an exciting marketplace for travelers and visitors, boasting a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars. Germany’s largest aviation gateway is also a premium location for retail and catering. Moreover, Fraport offers numerous airport-related services, from IT infrastructure and terminal equipment through to construction services. Its portfolio also encompasses safety and security-related services. Since the airport is subject to strict access regulations, the ID Card Service Center is responsible for issuing the necessary airport ID cards.
