Fraport’s Medical Services take care of all medical needs at Frankfurt Airport. They operate the airport’s Emergency Center (“Airport Clinic”), including the Travel Vaccination Center, and provide emergency medical care in cooperation with Fraport’s Rescue Services.
The airport’s Medical Services work closely with the Health Department of the City of Frankfurt. They thus play a key role in the public health system, including protection against infectious diseases.
Moreover, Medical Services are actively involved into emergency planning.
The Emergency Center (“Airport Clinic”) takes care of acute medical needs at Frankfurt Airport. It guarantees medical first aid and enables comprehensive medical care for passengers, visitors and employees. The Emergency Center is open 24 hours a day and is always staffed by medically qualified assistance personnel. Medical consultations are available every day from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The tasks of the Emergency Center team include:
Together with the Frankfurt Airport Rescue Services, the physicians at the Emergency Center ensure emergency medical care in the airport's operational area and the adjoining “rescue service area 20” as defined by the City of Frankfurt. “Rescue service area 20” comprises the new Gateway Gardens district and parts of the highways surrounding the airport, including Germany’s busiest highway intersection.
Emergencies are seen with priority and might lead to wait times at the Airport Clinic and the Travel Vaccination Center.
Furthermore, one of the physicians from the Emergency and Vaccination Centers is also the Chief Emergency Physician of Fraport AG, with responsibility for the entire airport area.
The Emergency Center is open 24 hours a day and is always staffed by medically qualified assistance personnel.
In the event of occupational accidents and accidents during the commute to work, our team provides first aid and, if necessary, refers the injured party to an external emergency physician.
Medical consultations are available every day from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Frankfurt Airport is classified as a “sanitary airport” in compliance with regulations of the WHO (World Health Organization) and the IHR (International Health Regulations).
