It was posted on another forum but it originates from Fraport's own photo library. The newest picture under 'current events'.

Yes, nice. Construction of T3 should start quite soon. This will be epic.

great picture (showing the entire airport layout).

HOWEVER, the distance for planes taxiing from the new NW runway to the terminals (in particular the new T3 seems VER LONG! Wouldn't you agree?

I think that the new runway is only for small aircrafts (B737-A320 and smaller), or up to a A330 / B767, but not for a B747 or A380..

At least the big picture is very nice and I am getting more in love with Frankfurt, so I am thinking to make a model airport of it..
Like the new runway, and the tarmac and lots of parking stands and the new A Terminal..

The new runway is open for all aircraft smaller than A380/B747. A340-600 or B777-300 are allowed to land on the new runway.

Finally parralel approach is possible in Frankfurt. With the additional capacity the runway offers the cards are being reshuffled in europe, i guess.

But it seems Angie has removed the video of the first landing from youtube.

Update on routes

Since January 16, SQ's SIN-FRA-JFK vv route is operated with A388 (B744 formerly).
Yesterday, January 21, ANA started the new route Haneda - FRA (in addition to daily Narita - FRA), operated with B788. Starting 3 times weekly, going daily from February on. It is also the first long-haul route for the Dreamliner.

Last week, Condor announced they will open new routes in summer 2012. One will be Rio de Janeiro 3 times weekly, together with TAM and Lufthansa there will be up to 3 daily flights between the two cities - between summer 2006 and summer 2010 there haven't been any nonstop flights on this route.
The others being exotic: Yangon, Burma and Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Older news, just to summarize:
- A380 -
Korean Air plans to switch to A380 service to FRA from March 25.
From early 2013, Thai Airways will send their A380s to FRA, this will be their first long-haul A380 route.
Skymark intends to use their A380s to FRA from 2015.
Not official yet, but quite predictable: Emirates might start A380 services to FRA in late 2012. Asiana announced they intend to send theirs to Europe also (with FRA being the only viable airport in Europe, concerning current traffic volumes). And then there's still Qatar and especially Etihad and Qantas.
- B747-8I -
Lufthansa will receive their first 4 frames in the first half of 2012. They will be based in FRA. No news about the first routes, yet.
BA World Cargo's B748F is now a regular visitor in FRA.

And not to forget, FRA had a new all-time passenger record, reporting 56.4 million passengers in 2011. In a few years, FRA might overtake CDG and be the #2 airport in Europe again (the position was lost to CDG in 2004 or 2005). And since LHR is not allowed to expand...

Interesting times ahead...
