More about the new system
The new Sky Line supplements the existing people mover system at Frankfurt Airport. How will Terminal 3 in the south of the airport be linked to Terminals 1 and 2 in the north? The challenge is that two runways separate the new terminal from the rest of the airport. The solution is the new Sky Line people mover. It will be able to carry up to 4,000 passengers per hour in each direction between Terminals 1, 2, and 3. The trip between Terminals 1 and 3 will take eight minutes at speeds of up to 80 km/h. The existing Sky Line will continue to operate between Terminals 1 and 2 but only carry passengers who are transferring between flights.
