Aviation analyst Alex Macheras told DW that, "Frankfurt airport is among the world's busiest global airports and. passengers can expect disruption to continue throughout the rest of the day and night - with a significant backlog tomorrow".

German Federal police ordered the evacuation of two areas in Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport on Tuesday after a man reportedly slipped past security into the boarding areas.

At 1230 GMT, the police said on Twitter that affected areas had been re-opened, allowing passengers as well as airport and airline employees to return. At least 29 flights out of about 1,500 daily departures were cancelled, according to airport operator Fraport AG. Lufthansa was prompted to create a new flight plan because of the incident. That triggered an alarm which caused the cancellation of 300 flights and affected more than 30,000 passengers.
