“Fraport History Overview
Fraport AG, the owner and manager of FRA, Germany’s biggest airport, looks back on a long tradition as a provider of airport services. Founded in 1924 under the name Südwestdeutsche Luftverkehrs AG, the company initially operated Frankfurt Airport at the Rebstock site. With the 1936 opening of Rhein-Main Airport adjacent to the Frankfurt Kreuz autobahn intersection, the core of what is today’s Frankfurt Airport (FRA) started operations. In June 2001, Fraport (formerly Flughafen Frankfurt/Main AG) was listed on the stock exchange. Meanwhile, Fraport is active in the airport management business on four continents to share the expertise gained at FRA over many decades.
Today, Frankfurt Airport is one of the world’s most important air transportation hubs and serves as the main European hub in the dense global network of the Star Alliance airlines. Frankfurt Airport not only has the reputation as a fast transfer airport but also boasts excellent intermodal connections, linking air, rail and road transportation. FRA is increasingly evolving into Frankfurt Airport City, an attractive business location and globally connected urban center.“
