Berlin launches a new chapter on June 3, when the German capital’s new airport, Berlin Brandenburg (BER), opens, and the two remaining airports, Tegel and Schönefeld, will close.
Domestic, European and intercontinental flights will operate out of the central terminal. Featuring six floors, the building will have enough space to handle up to 27-million passengers per year, 10-per-cent more than Tegel and Schönefeld’s 2011 throughput combined.
Expansion modules, however, will allow the airport to eventually accommodate up to 45-million passengers.
To ensure a quick commute into Berlin and beyond for meeting planners’ groups, trains will leave from the station just underneath the main terminal every 15 minutes. Travel time to Berlin’s city centre will be less than half an hour, at a cost of about three euros.
