Rail&Fly - your train to the airport

Rail&Fly is the fast and stress-free way to travel straight to the airport or city centre.

We take you to the airport or the heart of the city: stress-free, flexibly and in comfort. Adding Rail&Fly to your flight ticket saves you time and money. The airports in Frankfurt (FRA), Düsseldorf (DUS), Cologne/Bonn (CGN) and Leipzig (LEJ) are particularly well-connected by long-distance trains. But Deutsche Bahn services can take you conveniently to many other German airports too. Rail&Fly can only be booked through the airline or travel agent.
