Frankfurt Spectator Terrace Closing, Why?

Wed Aug 11, 2004 1:55 am


I heard the famous spectator terrace at Frankfurt's International Airport will be closed this month. I wanted to go spotting in Frankfurt in the coming year, but as I don't have the money now, I have to wait. But meanwhile the terrace will be closed, is this true? Why are they closing it? Security reasons? Will there be another similar spectator terrace at Frankfurt for the public that's close to the aircraft just like the current spectator's terrace?

Any information is welcome.

Base on the info I got, they were indeed planning on closing it from the beginning of August so LH can increase its business and first class lounge or something like that.

However, the works have been postponed for at least a year, and even when they close the terrace next year it should only close for about a month.
