In a fan-planar drawing of a graph there is no edge that crosses two other independent edges. We study 2-layer fan-planar drawings, i.e., fan-planar drawings such that the vertices are assigned to two distinct horizontal layers and edges are straight-line segments that connect vertices of different layers. We characterize 2-layer fan-planar drawable graphs and describe a linear-time testing and embedding algorithm for biconnected graphs. We also study the relationship between 2-layer fan-planar graphs and 2-layer right-angle crossing graphs.
