Frankfurt Airport inaugurates seven new security control lanes in T1

24 July, 2019

Fraport announced (24-Jul-2019) Frankfurt Airport opened a new new aviation security checkpoint featuring seven control lanes. The additional checkpoint was installed in a purpose built extension to concourse A at terminal 1 following six months of construction. Fraport CEO Dr Stefan Schulte stated: "Thanks to the new control lanes, considerably more passengers can now pass through security control in concourse A, resulting in shorter waiting times". The final construction phase of the extension hall will commence in Oct-2019, during which the new security lanes will be removed and redeployed at other existing checkpoints in Frankfurt Airport's two terminals. Extension hall A will re-enter operation in time for the 2020 summer season upon completion. [more - original PR]
