The initial situation
What traffic development can be expected in connection with the construction of the new Terminal 3? – An internal basis for planning and decision-making
At Frankfurt Main Airport (FRA), one of the largest airports in the world, an additional runway was successfully built and put into operation in 2011. After many years of dynamic growth, an additional terminal is being planned. Now that the planning approval process has been completed, this forecast serves as a comprehensive internal planning and decision-making basis as well as for official and, if necessary, legal coordination in the further development of the air traffic site in line with demand.
Is the construction of Terminal 3 justified in the long term in terms of demand and how is the development of traffic to be assessed from an economic point of view?
