At Frankfurt Airport, the teddy bear even gets a boarding pass: complete with name, destination, flight code, and seat number.
At Frankfurt Airport, the teddy bear even gets a boarding pass: complete with name, destination, flight code, and seat number. And why not—after all, teddy and three-year-old Sara are inseparable companions! This is just one small example of how Frankfurt Airport looks after its little passengers. When kids are happy, their parents can relax and the whole family can look forward to an enjoyable holiday. There are plenty of exciting places for kids to explore and play before flight time.
Fraport, the airport manager, has already opened seven new playgrounds in the transit areas (after passing the security checks) at Frankfurt Airport’s terminals. Each play area features a different adventure theme where kids can romp and explore to their hearts’ content. They can “climb around a helicopter” at Gate B22 in Terminal 1 or “descend into the ocean” at Gate B44. Another new play area awaits the young travelers at Gate C16. An Airport World awaits kids in Pier A-Plus, while one level above in Pier Z youngster are captivated by the world of pirates. At Terminal 2’s Pier D and E, children can countdown their own space adventure.
The highlights in the public part of Terminal 2 are the moon spaceship and the outdoor Visitors’ Terrace.
When arriving at Frankfurt Airport, “wall games” keep the kids occupied while their parents get the luggage. Tiny tots are also very important passengers that need to be taken care of well. Newly designed sanitary baby facilities include separate diaper changing rooms as well as private areas for breastfeeding. Frankfurt Airport offers families useful tips and more information online at Traveling with Children. A special brochure in English or German is also available for downloading.
These new Frankfurt Airport services and facilities for children are part of Fraport’s “Great to have you here!” service quality program, which is introducing many enhancements to make it even more enjoyable, convenient, and comfortable to spend time at Germany’s largest aviation hub. Look for more play areas and services in the future, such a baby care lounge. In 2012, Frankfurt Airport welcomed more than 57 million passengers of all ages.
