FRA links air, rail and road transportation
Fraport AG is a leader in the development of intermodal travel concepts which involve integrating air, rail and road ransportation. FRA‘s Long-distance Train Station has also been trailblazing the future of the Frankfurt intermodal transport hub. Via the Long-distance Train Station, air travelers departing or arriving at Frankfurt have direct access to Deutsche Bahn‘s (German Rail) ICE-train network.
Integration of Frankfurt Airport in Deutsche Bahn‘s high-speed rail network has expanded the airport‘s catchment area compared to airports without Long-distance Train Stations. It strengthened the hub function, raised passenger figures, and given us important competitive edges. At the same time, moving air traffic to the rail eases some of the strain on flight capacity. In addition, Frankfurt Airport‘s integrated Regional Train Station provides for fast connections between the airport, the city of Frankfurt and the Rhein-Main region.
