Security Measures at Frankfurt Airport Will Not Be Publicized

    Frankfurt/Germany (ots) - To enhance the already high security
standards in place at Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Fraport AG Frankfurt
Airport Services Worldwide - the owner and manager of FRA - maintains
close relations with the responsible government agencies and security
experts of airlines and other organizations.  In particular, Fraport
AG cooperates with the German Federal Border Police
(Bundesgrenzschutz), Hessian Ministry of Economic Affairs and
Transport, Hessian Ministry of the Interior, as well as various
police authorities on a continuous basis to carry out refinements or
to implement new safety and security precautions.  This cooperation
not only involves checking passengers, baggage and cargo but also
includes security "background checks" of personnel working at the
airport.  Furthermore, appropriate measures are in force across the
entire airport site to prevent security-related infringements and
other illegal activities.
    
    All companies and organizations involved in the air transport
industry at FRA place the highest priority on security.  Of course,
these organizations are unanimous in their view that existing and new
security measures
    
    should not be publicized - otherwise, criminals forces could use
this information to undermine security efforts.  As in the past,
filming (still or video) is not at the various control points in the
airport terminals. Therefore, Fraport AG asks media representatives,
in particular, to respect  the importance and necessity of these
restrictions.  
    
    Fraport AG still advises all passengers as well as meeters and
greeters - before they travel to the airport -to contact their
airline or travel agency about the status of their flight.  In
addition, passengers are requested to arrive in plenty of time for
their flight departure, allowing for possible delays at the check-in
counters and at the control points.  Passengers should carefully
observe all restrictions on guns and other weapons, which they are
not allowed to take on board the aircraft. This includes sports
weapons as well as all types of knives and scissors, and similar
items.
