At the airport


Frankfurt Airport is not just one of the busiest, but also one of the biggest airports in the world and has big selection of cafes, bars and restaurants where you can enjoy while waiting for the flight. You can find some really cool merchandise and a duty-free shop all around the airport.


European airport security might not be as stringent as in the US, but remember, Frankfurt Airport is one of the busiest in the world and you should expect lengthy security protocol queues. In order to avoid all inconvenient and stressful situations, try to come at least 2,5 hours before your flight departure time. Airlines have their own baggage rules, but remember, some rules are universal. Don’t try to bring liquids or sharp objects onto the plane. It’ll only lead you to lose your beverage, get stalled in the queue, or in the worst case, have to explain yourself to always busy security checkpoint staff.

When to arrive

It is recommended to be at the airport at least 2.5 hours before flight departure.

Frequently asked questions

Can I buy my ticket to Frankfurt Airport from the Nomago InterCity driver?

It is possible to buy it directly from the driver, but take into the consideration that the transfer bus may arrive full. That is why we strongly recommend you purchase your tickets well in advance to reserve your seats. You can also download the Nomago mobile app and purchase your tickets there, so that you avoid printing and carrying physical tickets (just be sure to have some power left in your phone as you’re ready to board).

What happens if my flight is canceled after I already purchased transfer tickets?

Your airline or travel insurance may reimburse your transfer ticket costs, but that should be pre checked with them.

I’m heading to the airport to catch a flight. Which transfer should I take?

You should always aim to take a bus which will arrive at the airport no less than 3,5 hours before your flight. The highways leading to Frankfurt airport are almost always busy with traffic and often a minor traffic accident can cause a 1-hour road delay. That still leaves you with the mandatory 2,5 hours before your flight.

I have a different question or problem with my transfer.
