Travelling and meeting safely in Frankfurt
A wide range of health and safety measures have been put into place throughout Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region to safeguard you as best possible from the Covid-19 virus during your stay with us. Your wellbeing is our top priority, from the moment you arrive at Frankfurt Airport through to your sojourn in our fair city all the way to your departure at the end of your trip. All stations and touchpoints of the Delegate Journey have been optimised according to infection to such an extent that you and your event participants can travel and meet in Frankfurt without any worries.
Since 2 April 2022 the Coronavirus Basic Protection Ordinance of the State of Hesse has been in force. This means that at many touchpoints along the delegate journey, corona-related requirements such as access restrictions and strict hygiene and distance rules no longer apply. When it comes to basic protective measures, each person is taking responsibility for not exposing themselves or others to an unreasonable risk of infection.
Welcome to Frankfurt: Arrival at Frankfurt Airport
Awarded the official TÜV seal of quality, “Safe against Covid-19”, all of Frankfurt Airport’s processes have been optimally adapted to deal with the current situation. Numerous hygiene measures have been put into place to protect travellers and airport staff from infection. This includes keeping a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from other people wherever possible. Floor markings help with this. Further measures include contact-free access to security checkpoints and boarding gates as well as ample disinfectant dispensers placed at key contact points throughout the terminals. Wearing a facial mask is recommended.
Returning travellers and arrivals are given the opportunity of taking a PCR or antigen quick test directly at the airport. The test centres are located between Terminal 1 and the long-distance train station. They are easy to find, simply follow the floor markings and signposts.
Depending on the country of origin and the vaccination or recovery status, a negative Covid-19 test result as well as a multiple-day quarantine stay may be a legal requirement for entry into Germany.
