Long distance travelers may get to FIAS by plane via Frankfurt Airport, one of the biggest air traffic hubs in Europe and servicing many international airlines. For planning and booking of flights, please refer to your local or online travel agency. Note, there are two airports in the Frankfurt area, FRA which is the major airport near the city and and HHN which is harder to reach. We suggest to fly to FRA ehenever possible.
