Frankfurt Airport to open 175 destinations for travellers
Frankfurt Airport has been increasing number of flights to the classic holiday regions in the Mediterranean during the second half of June. The number of weekly connections to Mallorca has increased from 6 to 26. For the first time since March, the Greek islands will also be served via Frankfurt Airport (FRA) with nine weekly flights to Heraklion on Crete planned from June 29. In total, Frankfurt Airport will be offering some 175 destinations – including about 50 intercontinental routes – at the end of June.
The small increase in flight offerings to some long-haul destinations in the Far East and South America is also planned. In addition, further destinations to North America will also be served again via the Frankfurt global hub from June 29. The attached table provides an overview the scheduled flights currently planned via Frankfurt.
The capacity planned via FRA will increase to 219,000 seats for the last week of June 2020 – representing a gain of 10 percent at the beginning of June and a gain of about 20 percent versus the previous year's level. With a view to the start of the summer vacation period, Fraport (the operator of Frankfurt Airport) expects a gradual expansion of flight offerings during the coming weeks. Due to the corona pandemic, FRA’s total traffic volume will continue to be noticeably below the 2019 level. Therefore, all passenger handling processes are currently concentrated in FRA’s Terminal 1 only.
Since mid-May, Frankfurt Airport has been prepared for the increase in flight operations. Fraport has implemented extensive anti-infection health measures in the Terminal 1 areas currently in use – according to required regulations of the health authorities. Further details are summarised here.
