NEWS A third terminal at Frankfurt airport

Fraport’s supervisory board has decided to build a third terminal at Frankfurt airport, despite local objections over the environmental impact. Opponents argue the extra capacity at Europe’s third largest airport is not needed and that the airport just outside Germany’s financial capital already creates too much noise. The decision to press on with a project that could cost up to EUR€3 billion (USD$3.2 billion) followed a study commissioned by the Hesse state government to look at the airport’s future capacity requirements, Fraport said.
