Apron Control

 

Keeping an Eye on the Apron

Frankfurt Airport has an average of around 1,300 flight movements (takeoffs and landings) a day, so the area between the terminals and the runways (called the apron) is always bustling with activity. As long as an aircraft is on the ground, it is the responsibility of the apron controllers. Are you curious to learn how they monitor and control everything that happens there? A visit to one of our two apron control towers is an excellent opportunity to catch a glimpse of their work. A total of 74 monitors, 54 remote cameras, 65 PCs and a ground radar are at their fingertips for performing their very important jobs. Peer over their shoulders, learn about details of their work and the procedures they use and, while you’re at it, enjoy the breathtaking view from the tower.
