Frankfurt Airport has confirmed its intention to start work on the construction of its new Terminal 3 later this year. The new terminal is being designed to accommodate up to 14 million passengers per annum.
Terminal 3 will be constructed on the south side of Frankfurt Airport on the premises of the former U.S. military base. Construction will be done on a modular basis in two building phases. The first building phase covers the building of the Main Terminal Building with two piers and 24 building positions.
For the connection of the new Terminal to the existing airport infrastructure, both the baggage conveyor system and the «SkyLine» passenger transfer train will be expanded.
