Why Fly to Frankfurt?
Nestled along the River Main, Frankfurt boasts a skyline of highrises unlike any other German city. Home to Europe's largest stock exchange, Germany's business capital also hosts Europe's second largest airport, after London Heathrow, which means cheap flights are plentiful. Beyond its business image, Frankfurt has an impressive historic city centre, a rich collection of museums and a nightlife to rival the country's best (especially in dance & techno music).
Flying to Frankfurt from the UK
As Germany's main hub, there are several airports that offer direct flights to the main airport Frankfurt am Main -- and becuase of the competition, discount flights are often on offer. From London Heathrow, London City, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow it takes only about 90 minutes to fly on a direct service to Frankfurt. There are no services from London Gatwick, London Luton and London Stansted to Frankfurt.
