Our team

Our team


We are a team of highly dedicated professionals driving the international business of Fraport. A strong focus of our work lies in the strategic management of our asset portfolio, ensuring the successful development and protection of the investments. At the same time we keep our finger on the pulse, looking for new business opportunities in the market that allow us to grow our airport portfolio and consultancy business.

Our business value

Our business value


Creating value starts with the right leadership and a highly motivated organization. By exporting our transparent governance principles, combined with key values such as fair and mutually respectful treatment of employees, we have experienced precisely that: a highly motivated, loyal and committed workforce.

We further believe that knowledge and the sharing of knowledge is fundamental. Managing a culturally diverse airport portfolio for more than two decades, made us find solutions to nearly every problem that occurs during an airport’s life cycle. Through various specialist exchange workshops and development programs, we convey this knowledge and innovative solutions across our global airport network. This helps save time, money and ultimately, creates sustainable value.

Our success story

We Manage Airports For Almost 100 Years


Our journey began at the homebase, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) founded in 1924. Over the years, FRA has transformed into an international showcase, becoming synonymous with high-level expertise Made in Frankfurt. Catering to a growing demand for our know-how, we started to initiate international consulting services in the early 1970’s.

In the 1990’s we were one of the first airport companies to acquire shares in other German airports such as Saarbrücken, Hanover and Hahn. Driven by the global internationalisation trend, we acquired our first international concessions with Antalya- and Lima Airport, which are still active today.

Over time, Fraport has become a major international player in the airport industry. Our international airport portfolio stands as one of the strongest globally, and the demand for consulting services remains high around the world.

"We take great pride in our airport portfolio, the respective local organizations and staff. On a continuous basis we face challenges therein arising from traffic, infrastructure, commercial or other. As a team, we always come up with innovative solutions improving service quality and efficiency. With our strong track record and excellent international reputation, we are highly committed to continue developing our airport business."

Denitza Weismantel and Charles Weinland, Senior VP´s Global Investments & Management

"Since the 1970’s Fraport is providing consulting services around the world. Driven by our consulting core team in Frankfurt, we have access to experts both from our FRA homebase and our international airport network. This unique possibility enables us to offer tailor-made consulting and training services with an international “dream team” of experts, in selected projects around the globe."
