With over 70.5 billion passengers in 2019, Frankfurt Airport is the biggest airport in Germany, the fourth biggest in europe and the 14th biggest in the world. 99 Airlines fly from Frankfurt to 311 destinations in 97 countries. In 2019 there were nearly 514.000 aircraft movements which ranges from a small business jet to an A380.
Due to a night flight ban the time of operation starts at 5am and ends at 11pm. Without night flights, all 2.04 billion tons of airfreight carried to Frankfurt by about 20 cargo airlines (and the pax carriers) have to be moved during these 18 hours.
Four runways ensure a smooth operation. The latest addition is "northwest-runway" (25R / 07L) which started operation in 2011. Currently the construction of a third terminal takes place in the southern part of the area.
