New terminal to secure the future of Germany’s largest aviation hub – Pier G scheduled for completion in 2021.

On April 29, Fraport AG laid the cornerstone for Frankfurt Airport’s (FRA) new Terminal 3, one of Europe’s largest privately financed infrastructure projects. During periods of peak activity, up to 5,000 construction workers, a day and around 75 tower cranes will be deployed at the Terminal 3 construction site.

Terminal 3’s Pier G, with capacity for up to five million passengers, will be completed by 2021 in the southern part of Frankfurt Airport (FRA). This modern facility will later be integrated into Terminal 3’s premium product. The plans call for the main terminal building, along with Piers H and J, to be completed in 2023. As a result, the airport will then be able to handle up to 21 million more passengers than now. There will be an option to later add a Pier K, thus increasing the new terminal’s total capacity to 25 million air travellers.
