Frankfurt am Main Airport (IATA: FRA, ICAO: EDDF), known in German as Flughafen Frankfurt am Main or Rhein-Main-Flughafen is a major international airport located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 12 km (7.5 mi) southwest of the city centre.Run by Fraport, it is by far the busiest airport by passenger traffic in Germany, the third busiest in Europe and the ninth busiest worldwide in 2009. It serves the most international destinations in the world and is the second busiest airport in Europe by cargo traffic.
There are two passenger terminals at the airport: Terminal 1 is divided into concourses A, B and C and Terminal 2 is divided into concourses D and E. Lufthansa also maintains a dedicated terminal for use by their First Class passengers.
Frankfurt Airport is located in the Frankfurt City Forest and directly connected to a Autobahn intersection called Frankfurter Kreuz where the A3 and A5 meet. It takes a 10–15 minutes ride by car or taxi to get to Frankfurt Central Station or the city centre.
There are multi-level parking garages along the terminals, mostly underground, for passengers coming with their own car. A long term holiday parking lot is located south of the runways and connected with a shuttle bus to the terminals.
The major rental car companies operate out of Frankfurt Airport. The various car rental companies have car return counters in the parking facilities for rental cars at Terminals 1 and 2. At Terminal 1 you will find them in P30/33 and at Terminal 2 in P8. The counters are staffed during the day.
When returning a car outside the counter opening hours, simply park in the return row and drop the vehicle’s key and papers in the box at the corresponding company’s counter.
