TAM is also expanding GIG-FRA from 5xw to daily.

LH in Brazil said that the new GIG-FRA 5xw soon will become 6xw(when the route starts in October).

The current terminals can handle up to 65 million pax. It is expected, that this capacity will be reached by 2015/2016 so termianl 3 will be finsihed just at the right time.

Auch nach der Inbetriebnahme der Nordwestlandebahn am 20. Oktober wird der Frankfurter Flughafen eine Großbaustelle bleiben. Der Fraport-Vorstandsvorsitzende Stefan Schulte kündigte am Freitag an, 2013 werde mit dem Bau des Terminals 3 begonnen, dessen erster Abschnitt 2016 oder 2017 fertiggestellt sein soll. Die wegen der Wirtschaftskrise auf Eis gelegten Vorbereitungen für das Projekt seien wiederaufgenommen worden; 40 Mitarbeiter seien bereits mit der Planung befasst. Schon jetzt zeigten viele Fluggesellschaften Interesse an dem Terminal, weil es dort eine besonders komfortable Abfertigung der Passagiere geben werde.

In the intercontinental traffic segment, Condor (DE/CFG) will commence twice weekly service in June 2011, directly to Calgary (YYC), the gateway to the Canadian Rockies, and to Seattle (SEA) in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

Qatar Airways (QR/QTR) will introduce four additional flights per week to the Gulf region in the Middle East, thus increasing its total number of frequencies to 14 per week. In July 2011, Oman Air (WY/OMA) will fly daily from FRA to Muscat (MCT), Oman.


European Traffic

In the European traffic segment, FRA’s Summer Timetable 2011 will include the new destination of Trondheim (TRD) in Norway, flown by Lufthansa. Lufthansa will also expand its route network with connections to Palermo (PMO) on the island of Sicily, to Genoa (GUA) in northern Italy, to Olbia (OLB) on the island of Sardinia, and to Bastia (BIA) in Corsica. Both Condor and Lufthansa will [B]fly to[/B] the holiday destination of Split (SPU) on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. In particular, Lufthansa will add 14 frequencies for a total of 67 weekly connections to the EU capital Brussels (BRU) in Belgium, plus 14 additional flights to Basel (BSL), Switzerland, for a total of 41 services per week. Seven extra flights per week with be offered by Lufthansa to the Scandinavian destinations of Bergen (BGO) in Norway, Goteborg (GOT) in Sweden, Helsinki (HEL) in Finland, and Billund (BLL) in Denmark, as well as the Swiss cities of Geneva (GVA) and Zurich (ZRH), and the Austrian capital of Vienna (VIE). Furthermore, the Czech capital of Prague (PRG) and Moscow’s Domodedovo (DME) airport will gain seven more flights per week. Spain’s Palma de Mallorca (PMI) will be served daily by Lufthansa. On the “racetrack” route to London, Lufthansa will increase the number of flights by 7 to 77 connections per week, while British Airways (BA/BAW) will add 5 more flights for a total of 50 frequencies per week from Frankfurt.


Domestic Traffic

Lufthansa’s domestic network via FRA will expand by two destinations this summer: Westerland (GWT) on the North Frisian island of Sylt and Rostock (RLG) on the Baltic Sea will each gain two new weekend flights per week. German routes with the heaviest traffic will see further expansion, too. Flights from FRA to Munich (MUC) will increase by 14 to 98 per week and to Berlin (BER) by 6 to 111 connections per week. The Hamburg (HAM) route was already expanded during the winter season by 7 to 107 weekly connections. Frequencies to Düsseldorf (DUS) will rise from 7 to 8 flights per day, while Friedrichshafen (FDH) on Lake Constance will gain one daily connection via FRA.

In the cargo sector, Frankfurt Airport’s Summer Timetable 2011 features 29 airlines flying all-freighter services to 78 destinations in 43 countries. The number of all-freighter departures from FRA will climb by 5.6 percent to 250 per week. With 160 intercontinental flights per week, Frankfurt will account for 66.5 percent of all intercontinental freight flights offered this summer season by Germany’s 16 coordinated commercial airports.

At first sight i thought it was an old plane but you're right KingNick: It's an Airbus A321 - One of Lufthansa's Retro Jets.

Popular Visitors' Terrace at T2 has reopened

On March 27, FRA celebrated the arrival of spring and the new flight timetable with the reopening of it's Visitors' Terrace at Terminal 2.


Source: Fraport AG

Quote:
...FRA's Visitors' Terrace can be accessed via the Food Plaza on Level 4 of Terminal 2 (public area). During the past winter months this outdoor observation deck has been upgraded for the coming summer season. For instance, new telescopes have been installed to give visitors an even better close-up view of Germany's busiest air transportation hub. These telescopes can be used without charge on the festive Sunday. FRA's Visitors' Terrace provides a spectacular panorama of the apron in front of Terminal 2, the parallel runways as well as the southern side of the airport – including the Berlin Airlift Memorial that marks one of the most significant chapters in FRA's 75-year history being celebrated in 2011. ...

Cheers... That certainly answers my question...
How many A380 capable gates in that rendering though I was under the impression the new concourse would be solely A380...

EK413, the new concourse A-Plus has four positions for the Airbus A380 and three for the A340-600. Two A321 can also dock at each of the A380 positions.
