Frankfurt starts work on T3

Construction work on the new Terminal 3 at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) has officially begun with a ground-breaking ceremony attended by more than 400 staff. 

The project, which is expected to cost up to €3bn, is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Germany. Officials say it will allow the airport, self-proclaimed as the ‘Gateway to the World’, to remain a key global aviation hub.

The first phase of the new terminal complex, which will have a capacity of up to 14m passengers a year, is scheduled to be complete by 2022. Current passenger capacity in Terminals 1 and 2 will be exceeded soon because of the continuing increase in passenger traffic at FRA. 

The first phase includes the main terminal building and two piers. Two more piers can be added later as necessary to expand the overall capacity of the terminal to 25m passengers a year.

The building will have a surface area of about 90,000sq m, equivalent to 19 football fields, and an interior height of 33m. www.frankfurt-airport.de
