Fraport AG, the operator of Frankfurt Airport, and AeroGround Flughafen München GmbH, a wholly-owned ground handling subsidiary of Flughafen München GmbH (the operator of Munich Airport), have developed a joint virtual reality (VR) training tool for ground handling operations.
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.
Today (April 29), Fraport AG laid the cornerstone for Frankfurt Airport’s new Terminal 3, one of Europe’s largest privately financed infrastructure projects. Numerous guests and construction workers attended the ceremony, which marked the start of above-ground construction.
25 years ago, the very first aircraft arrived at Terminal 2: a Cathay Pacific Boeing 747 from Hong Kong with 350 passengers onboard. Since the official inauguration on October 24, 1994, Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 2 has been the departure point, destination or stopover for some 200 million travelers.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has awarded Fraport USA (a subsidiary of Fraport AG) a five-year contract to manage the retail concessions space of Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
