Frankfurt Airport Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Terminal 2
More than 200 million passengers served over last quarter century - Pioneering terminal design
Airport operator Fraport and architects JSK, based in Frankfurt, set new standards in terminal design. Boasting a 30-meter-high glass façade, the terminal interior enjoys plenty of natural daylight, and ensures a pleasant airport experience for both travelers and staff. The 1,800 square meter viewing platform is also a firm favorite, and has become a popular destination for excursions.
The terminal’s history has also been marked by tragedy: On March 2, 2011, an attack on a bus located in front of the terminal building impacted the entire Rhine-Main region. Two people were shot dead and a further two seriously injured. In the aftermath, security precautions were further strengthened.
The construction of Terminal 2 was an important milestone in ensuring Frankfurt Airport’s future viability and its position as one of Europe’s leading aviation gateways. When Terminal 2 went into operation, up to 100,000 passengers arrived at and departed from Frankfurt Airport daily. Today, during busy periods, this number can be as high as 240,000 per day.
