FRA airport: How big is "big"?

Jump to last reply

I have read numerous posts regarding the size of the Frankfurt airport but have no real point of reference in terms of walking. I am wondering if I need to order a wheelchair for my husband who does all right with moderate, non-time-pressured walking but about collapsed on our Heathrow leg last year between arrival gate from US and connecting flight to Paris.

We have a several hour layover both ways to and from JNB next April. Fortunately, we will have access to the Business Class lounge but also will book a day room for one of the legs.

Any specifics regarding length of walk and experience with wheelchair (or other electric cart transfer) would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
