A380: Celebrating the First FRA-based Super Jumbo

To celebrate the start of A380 service at FRA and the World Cup, Fraport is offering a special program of family-oriented events on May 19, May 27 and June 6.

Along with airport tours, there will be activities at the outdoor Visitors' Terrace and in the terminals, including a shopping festival with music (June 6). Fans wishing to send off the German national team in style can do so on June 6 from the Terminal 2 Visitors' Terrace using hand wavers painted in Germany's national colors, provided by Fraport free of charge.

The A380 has been a frequent guest at Frankfurt. The FRA international air transportation hub was considered the first airport worldwide to have an A380-compatible infrastructure. As early as 2004, Fraport started detailed planning for introducing the new super jumbo, a passenger aircraft of unparalleled dimensions.

At FRA comprehensive handling tests were carried out for the A380. These included the first time ever rehearsal of docking a passenger bridge to the upper level of the double-decker A380. At nighttime, important tow tests measured the effects of the A380 on the airport's instrument landing system. Following successful completion of these airport compatibility tests, Fraport modified five more docking positions for the A380 at both of FRA's passenger terminal.

Meanwhile, FRA's Pier B has also been modified to serve the A380. Frankfurt Airport currently boasts a total of 10 terminal docking positions for the A380. In addition, there are five A380-compatible remote parking positions. With the new Pier A-Plus (now under construction), Terminal 1 will soon feature another four A380 docking positions.

Along with the arrival of the A380 on May 19, airport visitors will get another chance to see the super jumbo from the Visitors' Terrace on May 27, when the mega liner will be docked at the terminal from 14:00 to 19:30 for handling checks; airport tours will be available for those wanting a close-up view of the A380. Access to the Visitors' Terrace will be free of charge for children up to and including age 15.
