Frankfurt’s top European routes will be London-Heathrow with 134 weekly connections, Paris-Charles de Gaulle with 121, and Berlin-Tegel with 110. The most frequented Asian routes will be Singapore with 31 connections per week, Bangkok with 26, and Tokyo with 21. In North America, Los Angeles will be the top route with 35 connections per week, followed by Chicago and New York-JFK with 28 connections each.
Regarding scheduled cargo services with freighter aircraft, FRA’s Winter Timetable 2002/03 will offer 248 planned direct connections per week. The new timetable will feature 11 airlines linking FRA with 64 destinations in 39 countries – including Cairo (Egypt) as a new cargo destination.
The importance of Frankfurt as a hub in international air transportation is underscored by the fact that intercontinental flights have grown noticeably in the timetable, in contrast to European and especially domestic flights.
