Fraport and Lufthansa have formed a new joint venture called FraAlliance to improve the quality of products and services at Frankfurt Airport in Germany.

Each company holds a 50% share in the new venture. They intend to use FraAlliance to strengthen their existing cooperation on strategic and operational matters at Frankfurt Airport and thus plan to deepen their long-standing partnership in relation to enhancing services at Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 1.

One initial outcome of the extended partnership is the availability of real-time updates for aviation security checkpoints in the Lufthansa app. This enables Lufthansa passengers to see checkpoint waiting times in Frankfurt via the app, enabling them to take these times into account when planning their schedule and travel arrangements. In another project, passenger flows have been analyzed to reduce transfer times for around a million passengers per year by removing unnecessary, duplicate security checks.
