On 28 February, Kraków Airport's home carrier announced the launch of another new connection this year – in the 2017/2018 winter season you will be able to fly to Frankfurt with Ryanair. The service will be operated daily. Tickets will be on sale from the airline's website this week.
Frankfurt Airport is located 12 km south-west of Frankfurt's city centre. It features two terminals, connected by a free railway line.
Frankfurt Airport is the largest civil aviation airport in Germany, operating since 1936, and also one of the world's largest hubs, having served nearly 61 million passengers in 2015. It is currently used by over one hundred airlines and some forty charter flight carriers, and by the number of international connections offered, Frankfurt is the busiest airport in the world, serving some the Earth's most exotic destinations. Frankfurt Airport is also home to the German airline Lufthansa. A3 and A5 motorways as well as regular railway and bus services provide access to the airport. Frankfurt is one of Kraków's key partner cities. The primary collaboration areas between the cities include culture, education, sports, social work, management, residents' visits, collaboration between the fire departments, collaboration with the Frankfurt-Kraków Friends Community, and the KAFKA vocational training programme for students and graduates of Kraków universities.
The Kraków-Frankfurt route is also operated by Lufthansa.
The Irish airline will now be serving two routes from Kraków Airport to Germany, the other destination being Dortmund.
