Inform yourself about your destination and save your flight!

Please note that many countries require a digital travel declaration and/or visa for entry. If you cannot present this at the airport, it will not be possible to take your flight. We advise that you carry the documents handy at all times.

To easily and conveniently receive information about flight updates and helpful service offers, use our new update function via WhatsApp. Call up your flight and activate the service by clicking on the WhatsApp symbol.


Pack the right way: what you may and may not take

If possible, take only one item of luggage per person and observe the applicable regulations. Rechargeable batteries, power banks, and e-cigarettes (vaping devices) may not be placed in checked luggage. Liquids may only be carried in containers holding no more 100 ml each (up to a total of no more than one liter) in your carry-on luggage.


Check in early and prepare for your travels

To ensure that the travelling day is as relaxed as possible, we recommend to take advantage of online or evening-before check-in.

Please make sure to arrive at the terminal two hours prior to departure. If you would like to check in baggage and/or have booked an international long-haul flight, we recommend that you arrive at the terminal two and a half hours prior to departure (these recommendations are guidelines and without any guarantee).  Please ask your airline about the check-in counter opening times. We advise against arriving at the airport too early, as otherwise you will have to endure unnecessary waiting times.

Take advantage of our service FRA SmartWay to conveniently book a time slot for the security checkpoint already before your trip.


Make plans for traveling to the airport and any required reservations well in advance

The parking facilities around Terminals 1 and 2 are subject to heavy demand during the German school holidays. It’s therefore advisable to book spaces online well in advance. Alternatively, you can conveniently get to the airport using public transportation. Meeters and greeters can use the car parks at the terminals for a fee of only € 2.00 up to 30 minutes.


Check-in and security checkpoint

Please take advantage of the self-service facilities for checking and dropping off luggage. After completing check-in and/or dropping off your baggage, please immediately proceed to the security checkpoint.

Hygiene measures and testing

We ask you to comply with the general rules of hygiene and, wherever possible, to keep a distance of 1.5 meters from other people. Departing and arriving passengers can take advantage of various testing services at the airport.


Information on baggage pickup

Please keep in mind that luggage may take a while to appear at the baggage claims. This can affect your plans for onward travel, heading home, train connections, and arrangements for being picked up. When the drive-by lanes at the terminals are jammed, those coming to pick up arriving passengers can park in the terminal parking facilities for 30 minutes for only 2€.  


Optimally connected: departure and onward journey

It takes just a few minutes for you to walk to the regional and long-distance train stations to catch trains to destinations in the surrounding Rhine-Main region and the rest of Germany and Europe. There are also numerous bus connections, rental cars, car sharing services, and taxis available right at the airport. You can also take advantage of facilities for charging or filling up your vehicle with electricity, gasoline, or LPG in the immediate vicinity.
