Europe’s new gateway

Issue 2 2012  •  29 March 2012  •  Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Berlin Brandenburg Airport

Berlin Brandenburg Airport starts operating on 3 June 2012. The new airport will be Berlin’s new gateway to the world. It is a next-generation hub airport with a strong focus on European traffic as a feeder for long-haul connections. Following the start of construction work in September 2006, we officially started the countdown to the opening of the new airport in June 2011, and replaced the project name ‘BBI’ with the new airport’s real name: Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt. The new IATA code for the airport is BER. These three letters are the new hallmark of the airport and will be carried out into the world on tickets and boarding passes.The Berlin Brandenburg region currently has two airports, Tegel and Schönefeld. Tempelhof was closed on 30 October 2008, and Tegel Airport, which is stretched way beyond its capacity, will follow this year. As of June 2012, all air traffic will be concentrated at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, which is located on the site of the current Schönefeld Airport, south east of Berlin. This concentration of air traffic will turn BER into a hub, reduce operating costs, increase productivity, create up to 40,000 new jobs and cut aircraft noise considerably for hundreds of thousands of citizens due to the closure of Tegel and Tempelhof.BER will be Europe’s most modern airport and will offer airlines excellent opportunities for growth.
