To keep staff supplied with liquids under these extreme temperature conditions, Fraport deploys five drinks trucks around the airport to offer free drinks like cold multivitamin juice, lemonade and water, as well as warm tea and bouillon soup. When temperatures are rising sharply above 30 degrees Celsius – like now – employees soak up some 1,000 liters of liquids per day from the mobile drinks service. This does not include the additional drinks that employees bring from home or get in airport canteens.
While working out on the apron, employees also wear protective clothing like long trousers, sturdy shoes, safety hats, and gloves. Along with refreshments, Fraport also provides apron staff with sunscreen lotion and sunglasses to protect from the rays of the sun on bright clear days at Germany’s leading airport gateway.
