Frankfurt Chosen as the World's Best

"Cargo Airport of the year 2005"

Frankfurt (OTS) - Frankfurt Airport (FRA) has once again been chosen as the world�'s "Cargo Airport of the Year 2005" by Air Cargo News, the renowned international trade publication. This is the second year in a row that CargoCity Frankfurt (the name of FRA�'s airfreight areas) has received the prestigious "Cargo Airport of the Year" award. Serving the global airfreight community, Air Cargo News is based in the U.K and has a total of 100,000 readers on every continent.

As part of its application for the competition, Fraport AG (the owner and manager of Frankfurt Airport) presented key events of the past year in the form of a calendar. These included topping-out ceremonies and inaugurations for new forwarding centers and airfreight terminals, special shipments, as well as new air cargo links at FRA. The quality of Fraport�'s presentation and the wide range of new developments at Frankfurt Airport during the previous 12-months proved more than convincing for the selection jury of experienced editors.
