Satisfaction Survey

In our 2017 customer satisfaction survey, the vast majority of airlines, freight forwarders, GSAs and cargo handlers once again expressed their satisfaction with FRA; in fact, the overall level of satisfaction was even higher than in 2016. The processing of special products received the best grades, while, on the other hand, gastronomy facilities and process speeds were criticized. Measures to address these concerns have already been initiated.
