Berlin Schönefeld Airport’s renovated and modernised Pier 3a is now open
After 10 months of construction, a section of Terminal A at Schönefeld Airport has reopened with amenities that will greatly improve passenger satisfaction.
Following a complete renovation, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB) has reopened Schönefeld’s Pier 3a, a section of Terminal A.
The two-storey building has a total floor space of 4,000m2, and the ground floor now has an open-plan waiting area with five gates and two food outlets. Offering an additional 400 seats, charging points for mobile devices and fully renovated toilets, it is expected the project will improve the quality of services for passengers.
On the second floor, there is a further open-plan waiting area with four gates and one food outlet for departing non-Schengen passengers. Before passengers enter, they pass through the centralised border control operated by the German Federal Police.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, said: “The terminals in Schönefeld will continue to be needed in future years in order to be able to successfully manage the continued high number of travellers from and to the capital region. Completion of the Pier 3a modernisation programme is one of many construction projects with which we improve the quality of services for passengers in Schönefeld. Over the next few months, we will also be expanding the security check areas in Terminal B and modernising the systems for checking luggage.”
In future, arrivals from the non-Schengen area will operate via the existing central arrival areas in Terminals A and D.
