From the first beginnings to Terminal 3: The reach grows
Frankfurt Airport was setting records even while Media Frankfurt was being founded. In 1971, ten million people passed through the airport for the first time. In 2019, another record year, we counted no less than 70.6 million passengers. As early as the 1970s the Germans led the field when it came to international travel and, as mobility increased in general, so the public at our airport became more and more cosmopolitan, new and remoter destinations were opened up, and Frankfurt developed into the most important German airport for business travellers and decision makers.
