tmb fkranfurt movie houseGermany’s Frankfurt Airport now offers a selection of movies and gaming activities for waiting passengers in Piers A and Z in Terminal 1. Both are free services.

Frankfurt operator Fraport said “Movie World” enables passengers to sit on “comfortable couches for up to three persons" which are arranged in front of TV screens, just like at home. They are placed in niches for added privacy.
