With 64,5 million passengers per year the airport in Frankfurt is Germany’s largest airport and an international aviation hub. Passenger volumes keep on increasing and the airport is being extended. The new terminal three will be connected to the other terminal with a people mover system. The trains will be able to carry up to 4000 passengers per hour – and all operations will be driverless. The system is designed to improve the connection to the regional and long-distance trains making public transportation more attractive for passengers travelling to the airport
Siemens, the Max Bögl Group and Keolis provide the system and Ramboll has partnered with Obermeyer Planen + Beraten und Prose to ensure quality control. The new people mover system will supplement the existing line with 5,6 km track paths. The line stretches from the south to the north of Frankfurt airport will have three stations and trains departing every two-minutes to ensure efficient connections.
