  1. I think Frankfurt is in great shape to make a recovery based on the facts like location and highly industrialized areas like the air port which are timeless streams of revenue. The creation of jobs will be great for the economy.

  2. I think the airport is very important for Frankfurt, it’s very helpfull for the labour market because it creates a high employment rate. When the airport is doing well it even has the potential to grow and the potential employment can increase more. But I think there are also secondairy effects because of the air port. More people are coming to the city and maybe they would also like to visit the city it self. This is important for Frankfurt to react on because more people to the city means more potential buyers. More potential buyers can lead to more employment. For example in the branche of hotels, restaurants, communication and ofcourse the holiday branche.
