Frankfurt International Airport (IATA: FRA, ICAO: EDDF), known in German as Rhein-Main-Flughafen or Flughafen Frankfurt am Main, is located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is the largest airport in Germany and the second or third-largest in Europe (depending on which data is used), serving as an important hub for international flights from around the world. It is run by Fraport AG. The southern side of the airport, until late 2005, was known as Rhein-Main Air Base, a major airlift base for the United States from 1947 on.

Frankfurt International is a hub of Lufthansa, the German flag carrier. Because of undercapacity in Frankfurt, Lufthansa divides traffic between Frankfurt and Munich's Franz Josef Strauß International Airport when possible.

Frankfurt International currently serves more destinations than London's Heathrow International Airport, but in terms of passenger traffic Frankfurt International is third in Europe, behind London's Heathrow Airport and Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport.
