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.
