It's time! From 15 July, Frankfurt Airport will once again be offering 45-minute tours of the apron of Germany's most important air traffic hub.
New is the name - and it's also the programme: The Comeback Tour takes up many aspects that die-hard airport fans already know. In addition, it also has a lot of new things to offer that you have never experienced before. The tour - like almost everything else at the moment - is under the auspices of Corona. There are numerous new regulations that the airlines and the airport have to observe and implement and which are communicated in an exciting and informative way by the tour guides. This is because Frankfurt Airport is of outstanding importance for Germany, particularly in the current situation - for example in the supply of medical supplies. 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.
During the tour, guests experience the exciting events on the apron at close quarters: Take-offs, landings, parked planes from all over the world and the many small and large processes that take place all around the apron during handling.
>>em> For all trips: With 22 participants per tour, only half of the available seats in the bus are occupied - the minimum distance is therefore consistently maintained. Nevertheless, the wearing of a mouth and nose protector during the trip and throughout the airport building is mandatory. All other infection protection requirements of the state of Hesse have also been fully complied with.
The first tour starts at 10 am, the last tour at 4 pm. Individuals pay 8.28 euros, the reduced price is 6.33 euros. It is valid (upon presentation of appropriate proof) for children from four to seven years of age, pupils, trainees, students, senior citizens over 65 years of age, as well as persons with a disability ID and their accompanying person registered in the ID. The crooked price results from the fixed reduction in VAT, which is of course passed on to visitors as a price advantage.
The visitors' terrace of the airport will remain closed for the time being. Until then, a good view can be enjoyed from the three spotter points around the airport. Passengers and visitors can find information about the wide range of services at Frankfurt Airport on the travel homepage, at Service-Shop and via the social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
For the time being, the new offer is on trial until the end of August. From Wednesday to Friday seven round trips start daily, on Saturdays and Sundays 14 trips each.
Update is an advance booking under www.FRA-Tours.com mandatory.
