Frankfurt Main Airport (EDDF) - Jet Charter Services
Frankfurt, Germany, conjures up thoughts of an international city with a majestic skyline and some of the best beer in the world.
But, for most of those who charter private jets into Frankfurt am Main International Airport, the city is first and foremost the financial center of continental Europe.
The city of Frankfurt am Main – its official name – is located on the Main River. It is home to the European Central Bank, the Deutsche Bundesbank and several other large banking institutions.
It is also the location of the Frankfurter Börse, Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Built in 1843, it is considered the 10th largest stock exchange in the world.
No matter the reason for visiting what has been affectionately nicknamed “the world’s smallest metropolis,” the easiest and most prestigious way to get there is to hire a private jet to Frankfurt Main International Airport.

Hire a private jet into EDDF
Frankfurt Main International Airport is not only the busiest commercial airport in Germany, the third busiest in Europe – behind London Heathrow Airport and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport – and the 14th busiest in the world with 65 million passengers in 2017, it is also among the Top 50 busiest business aviation airports in the world.
Meanwhile, the country of Germany, with its more than 100,000 private jet movements a year, is the second biggest business aviation market in Europe (behind France) with a 14 percent market share. Germany has the most private jet registrations in Europe.
It’s interesting to note that most – more than 50 percent – of private jet activity in Germany is domestic, from one German airport to another. The country has more than 300 German airports that can accommodate private or chartered business jets.

The allure of Frankfurt
Frankfurt has two personalities; it is the world’s smallest metropolis with a population of about 730,000 and Europe’s largest financial center.
The city’s financial district draws thousands of foreigners to move to Frankfurt every year. More than a quarter of Frankfurt’s inhabitants were not born in Germany.
It is the place where business meets culture – and it is not unusual to walk down a street and hear many languages being spoken. It is liberal and multi-cultural.
As the headquarters of the European Central Bank and its location in the heart of Europe, Frankfurt is one of the most important cities in the world. It has become one of the most important hubs in the world for air, rail and motor vehicles.
In addition to its financial district, Frankfurt am Main has many other important business sectors, including information technology, biotechnology, automotive and pharmaceutical and chemical industries .
Charter a jet to a trade fair
Frankfurt am Main is a trade fair city. In fact, it may be where the business of trade shows began because fairs have been held in Frankfurt for more than 800 years.
Today, Messe Frankfurt, a government-owned event planner, is responsible for putting on trade shows and events in Frankfurt – and around the world.
It is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018 but much has changed since that first Export Fair that was held in Frankfurt in October 1948. The autumn event, which was held annually, brought together buyers and sellers of just about anything and everything that could be bought and sold in Germany.
Modern trade shows have narrowed their focus.
Wolfgang Marzin, president of Messe Frankfurt, a market leader in the international trade fair sector, dubbed the dividing up of events according to product sectors as the “Frankfurt principle.” The success of that practice, which started in the 1920s, proved that product areas were able to support themselves.
Messe Frankfurt found that focusing on individual industry sectors has allowed it to organize on its exhibition grounds many new and independent trade fairs such as the ones on its current schedule.
Messe Frankfurt, which has some 2,400 employees in 30 locations, is owned by the City of Frankfurt (60 percent) and the State of Hesse (40 percent).
The city hosts more than 30 industrial expos and fairs that attract millions of people – many on private jets – every year. They include large automobile, music industry and publishing shows.
The “Frankfurter Buchmesse,” the Frankfurt Book Fair, which is held over five days every October, is the world’s largest trade fair for books – both in terms of professionals and visitors.
In 2017, more than 7,000 book publishers, technology companies and multimedia representatives from more than 100 countries – as well as almost 300,000 visitors – attended the event.
Fourteen of the 15 tallest building in Germany are in Frankfurt. (The other on is the Post Tower in Bonn.)
The tallest of these is the 853-foot Commerzbank tower. It was built in 1997.
Frankfurt’s cluster of high-rise buildings give it an impressive skyline that is unlike any other in Europe. In fact, it is sometimes referred to as Mainhattan, a portmanteau of New York’s Manhattan and Frankfurt’s Main River.
Frankfurt shares another of New York City’s traits. It has an inner-city forest. New York has Central Park and Frankfurt, one of the most densely populated cities in Germany, has the Stadtwald or “city forest.” Some 15 square miles, more than half its total area, are located in the city limits, making it one of the world’s largest urban forests.
More to Frankfurt than business
If you aren’t renting a private jet into FRA to do business in its financial district, maybe you are chartering a private jet into Frankfurt to see the beautiful city, ranked as one of the world’s most expensive – and best – places to live.
There is much to see in Frankfurt, including the “Museumsufer,” the area in which 11 museums line both banks of the Main River and dozens of others are located within walking distance on nearby streets.
If you go looking for the Frankfurter Börse, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, you’ll be greeted by two bronze statues of a bull and a bear, symbols of the up and down of the market.
Now, about those hot dogs
Frankfurter has become the generic name for those long, thin, traditionally pork, smoked sausages. In Germany, they are served much as they are here, with bread, mustard and sometimes potato salad.
However, if you mean the frankfurters from Frankfurt, those are called “Frankfurter Würstchen.” Butchers outside the Frankfurt region have to call their hotdogs “Nach Frankfurter Art,” which means like a frankfurter, but not an original.
However, purists contend the frankfurter began in Vienna, the birthplace of the Vienna sausage and the city whose name would be morphed into the word “wiener.”
