German airport company Fraport has introduced Gaming World, a new recreation area for passengers at Frankfurt Airport (FRA).

Passengers can play the latest arcade games to relax during the wait before their flights.

Available to play free of charge, the range of games are based on Microsoft's Xbox One console, and include soccer, car racing, fun for kids, fitness games and dancing.

Launched to improve customer experience, the section features games installed on monitor walls and pedestals.

Fraport is planning to develop more such gaming sections at the airport.

"Passengers can play the latest arcade games to relax during the wait before their flights."

Located in Terminal 1 on Level 3 of Pier A-Plus, the Gaming World is part of Fraport's service quality programme, which also includes the Frankfurt Airport App and free 24hr Wi-Fi.

In 2015, Frankfurt Airport exceeded 60 million annual passengers, and handled nearly 2.1 million metric tonnes of cargo.
