The German airport’s owner and operator, Fraport AG, announced it would start construction of Terminal 3 this year.
Studies projected that up to 73 million people would use the airport by 2021. This exceeds its current capacity.
The airport served 59.6 million passengers last year, a 2.6 percent increase from 2013.
Fraport says the airport in its current form has a maximum capacity of about 64 million passengers a year and it needs to start building a new terminal now to meet future demand.
Terminal 3 is expected to become operational in 2022.
