This is an airport / tour review of the inside and outside of Frankfurt Airport (FRA), located in Germany. This airport footage is of a transfer flight and should give the viewer an idea of what it is like to arrive at Frankfurt Airport on a European flight, and give the viewer an idea of how it is to transfer at Frankfurt area (arrive on one flight and then how to find and get to a connection flight).
This airport tour begins with our disembarkation onto the tarmac at Frankfurt Airport (FRA). We have just arrived on a flight from an EU country and will be going to another gate in Frankfurt Airport´s Terminal 1 building to board our next flight to another EU country. From the aircraft we board a bus which takes us on a long ride through the Airport to our Terminal Building (Terminal 1), The drive through the airport gives you, the viewer, an idea of just how large this German Airport (Lufthansa Hub) actually is. Once we arrive at the terminal building, we quickly make our way to the gate information screen to see from which gate we will be boarding our flight (which in our case is to Copenhagen Airport). Our gate is A7, so we then follow our on foot walk through the beautiful Terminal 1 building, following the signs all the way in the direction of our Gate. Our flight is due to begin boarding soon, hence we do not have much time to stop and make use of the nice looking coffee shops or to do some Duty Free Shopping at the multiple brand names stores located in this Terminal. We easily follow the signs to our gate. Information is very effective at Frankfurt Airport, and we found it to be a very easy airport to do a flight transfer (transit / connection flight). Once we find our departure gate we again have to go downstairs into the "cellar" as our flight will once again be a tarmac boarding, which means we will once again be driven from the gate to the aircraft by bus. We call the gate area for our flight "the cellar" as this area almost id´s a cellar with no natural light located under the Terminal 1 building. The area is dull and gloomy and Frankfurt Airport should do something to make the interior of this departure area more inviting to passengers... Once our flight begins boarding the viewer is again taken on a bus drive through Frankfurt Airport to our waiting aircraft...
