A well-equipped cardio area supplements the offer, which is rendered even more interesting thanks to modern TV and video equipment in the training rooms. A wide range of courses offers group training to suit everyone, at attractive times and with professional instruction. Following the training, a cozy bistro area is available and serves as a communication point for Fitpoint users. A newly designed sanitary area completes the offer.
In conjunction with the five days of study leave scheduled by the Hesse Study Leave Act per calendar year, Fraport employees can request a further five days study leave.
Compared to the legally regulated study leave, the additional study leave granted by Fraport is subject to minor restrictions. It can be granted for workplace-related professional training, language courses, seminars offered by the internal educational center, preparation for or the sitting of exams.
Employees/Workers can initially claim study leave once they have been employed for a period of six months. Those wanting to take study leave should apply for their release six weeks prior to the training course, together with the necessary documentation.
Interesting seminars for which study leave can be requested can also be found in the Q-Card program.

Deferred compensation is the payment of part of your income by the employer into a pension insurance fund. The great number of persons insured enables “bulk discounts” in respect of company pension provisions, i.e., company pension offers are more favorably priced compared to private offers.
The Retirement Savings Act has resulted in the reduction of benefits paid by the statutory pension insurance funds (Deutsche Rentenversicherung), while personal provisions and company old-age pensions are being subsidized to develop supplementary pension provisions. Employees and workers since have a right to a company pension through deferred compensation. Employees determine an amount of their gross salary or wage, which is to form a contribution to the company pension. The employer transfers this amount to the respective pension fund.
The state subsidizes this employee-financed age pension through taxes and contributions not being applied. If this were privately financed, this insurance contribution would have to be transferred in full from the employee’s net income.
Fraport offers deferred compensation through the Kommunale Dienstleistungszentrum (KDZ) - Zusatzversorgungskasse für Gemeinden und Gemeindeverbände in Wiesbaden (ZVK) - and through Allianz Pensionskasse.
