Fraport AG Wins Two Asian Freight Industry 2001 Awards for Frankfurt-Main Airport: "Best Airport - Europe" and "Best Air Cargo Terminal Operator - Europe"
Frankfurt, Germany (ots) - At the prestigious Asian Freight Industry Awards 2001 (AFIA) presented last Friday in Hong Kong, Frankfurt-Main Airport (airport code = FRA) - owned and managed by Fraport AG (Frankfurt Airport Services Worldwide) - received two awards: "Best Airport - Europe" and "Best Air Cargo Terminal Operator - Europe". Frankfurt Airport has won the "Best Airport -Europe" award four times in the past five years: from 1997 to 1999, and now in 2001. In 1998, FRA also picked up the "Best Air Cargo Terminal Operator - Europe" award. The AFIA awards are organized by the Hong Kong-based publication Cargonews Asia, which polls 13,000 senior freight industry professionals throughout Asia to select the best companies in 37 categories in major trading areas worldwide.
Stephen Miller, Fraport's Hong Kong-based representative, proudly accepted the awards on behalf of the company. Miller said, "This double recognition underscores FRA's position not only as the number one air cargo gateway in Europe -- handling more than 1.6 million metric tons of airfreight and airmail in 2000 -- but as the best in terms of customer service as rated by Asian shippers and freight specialists." Furthermore, FRA is one of Asia's most important cargo and passenger gateways in the global air transportation system.
FRA is highly regarded because of its strategic location in the heart of the "new" Europe, excellent transportation links, efficient and fast ground handling, intensified customer orientation, as well as heavy investments in airport infrastructure such as the Fraport-Cargo Terminal and intermodal air/rail links for the CargoCity South development. Fraport AG also owns and manages Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.
