Construction begins at Frankfurt Airport's New Terminal 3

More than 400 employees of Fraport AG performed the symbolic first cut of the spade, marking the ground-breaking and start of construction for Frankfurt Airport´s new Terminal 3, according to airport officials.

The first construction phase will include the main terminal building and two piers to serve up to 14 million passengers per year. At a later date, two more piers can be added to expand the overall capacity of Terminal 3 to some 25 million passengers per year.

By installing a new SkyLine people-mover system to link Terminal 3 with the existing terminals at the north side of FRA, Fraport will ensures the best transfer options and optimal intermodal connections for all passengers and guests.
