Frankfurt Airport’s new “silent chairs” offer more relaxation for transfer passengers


FRANKFURT, Germany – With the introduction of so-called silent chairs, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) has created new relaxation opportunities for passengers at one of the world’s leading transfer hubs. The silent chairs are the perfect way to relax in peace while waiting for an onward connecting flight. These arch-shaped chairs noticeably reduce the ambient noise, enabling passengers to listen to their own music thanks to integrated speakers that can be connected to their smartphones, tablets or other digital devices. Those wishing to work will also find integrated power sockets, a USB port, and a small table.

Silent chairs are available to transferring passengers in Terminal 1 opposite gates A58 and Z58, and in Terminal 2 at gates D4 and E5. Fraport, the airport operator, is planning to add more silent chairs in the terminals.

The silent chairs are part of the “Great to have you here!” quality service program launched by Fraport AG with the aim of enhancing the travel experience at Germany’s leading aviation hub. Other examples include the Frankfurt Airport App 3.0 and free 24-hour Wi-Fi for all terminal passengers.
