The time has come! Frankfurt Airport will once again be offering 45-minute tours of the apron of Germany's most important aviation hub from 15 July.
New is the name - and that is also the programme: the Comeback Tour picks up on many aspects that die-hard airport fans already know. In addition, it also has a lot of new things to offer that have never been experienced before. The tour is - as almost everything is at the moment - under the auspices of Corona. There are numerous new regulations that airlines and the airport have to observe and implement, and the tour guides explain them in an exciting and informative way. After all, Frankfurt Airport is of outstanding importance for Germany, especially in the current situation - for example, in the supply of medical goods. Temporarily decommissioned aircraft, packed turbines, tail units previously unknown at FRA - all this makes Frankfurt Airport a completely new setting for a unique excursion experience right now.
During the tour, guests experience the exciting happenings on the apron up close: Take-offs, landings, parked aircraft from all over the world and the many small and large processes that take place all around during handling.
The following applies to all tours:With 22 participants per tour, only half of the available seats in the bus are occupied - the minimum distance is thus consistently maintained. Nevertheless, wearing a mouth-nose protection is mandatory during the ride and in the entire airport building. All other infection control requirements of the State of Hesse are also fully complied with.
The first tour departs at 10am each day, with the last ride at 4pm. Individuals pay 8.28 euros, the reduced price is 6.33 euros. It is valid (on presentation of appropriate proof) for children from four to seven years, pupils, trainees, students, seniors over 65 years, as well as persons with a disability ID and their accompanying person registered in the ID. The crooked price results from the fixed VAT reduction, which is of course passed on to visitors as a price advantage.
The airport's visitor terrace will remain closed for the time being. Until then, a good view can be enjoyed from the three spotter points around the airport. Information on the wide range of services at Frankfurt Airport can be found by passengers and visitors on the travel homepage, in the Service-Shop as well as via the social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
For now, the new offering will run on a test basis through the end of August. Seven tours depart daily on Wednesdays through Fridays, and 14 tours each on Saturdays and Sundays.
Currently, advance booking is available at www.FRA-Tours.com is mandatory.
