Germany – Frankfurt airport casino closes

By - 19 November 2014

The casino at Frankfurt airport has terminated its contract with the City of Frankfurt for financial reasons as visitor numbers and revenues in 2014 have fallen to unsustainable levels. The franchise fee paid to the city of Frankfurt fell in 2013 to €23,000 – almost half the sum paid in 2012 (€43,000), indicating a substantial fall in operating revenues. The casino has been in operation within the transit area of Frankfurt airport for 14 years, opening in 2000 as the world’s second airport casino. Measuring just 150sq.m. the location at Terminal 1 Departures housed American roulette and blackjack tables in addition to 45 slot machines. The casino’s nine employees have been informed of the decision to close the casino and have received letters of termination of employment.
