Frankfurt Airport: tomorrow T2 reopening
48 airlines ready to start at this Terminal
Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 2 will open it’s doors again on Tuesday, June 1. Terminal 2 parking facilities and the Sky Line and bus transfer connections to Terminal 1 will also be providing regular service again. Consequently, passengers departing from Frankfurt Airport on or after June 1 should check in advance which terminal their flight will leave from.
Comprehensive health measures have been implemented to thoroughly prepare Terminal 2: including a total of 3,000 floor markings, 480 see-through partitions installed at the check-in counters, blocking off every other seat in the waiting areas, and installing 30 disinfectant dispensers.
Effective June 1, the T2 parking facilities will also be fully operational and available for use.
Coinciding with the terminal’s reopening, some restaurants and other services will also once again be serving passengers and visitors. In addition to restaurants and food stands, shops selling magazines and newspapers, will be open.
The Visitors’ Terrace at Terminal 2 will remain closed for the time being. Frankfurt Airport is getting ready to reopen this popular viewing platform in August.
Terminal 2 has been closed to traffic since March 2020, due to the decrease in flights caused by the pandemic. Fraport, the airport’s manager, has effectively used this time to carry out extensive upgrades, repairs, and modernize projects in the T2 complex, which was inaugurated in 1994. The spacious terminal hall now also shines in a new light, thanks to installation of 3,136 new glass panes in the five skylights of the terminal roof. By the end of this year, 5,550 m² of asphalt roofing and 2,440 m² of concrete dividers will also be replaced. All of the terminal technical systems, cables, and electrical systems have also been optimized.
