Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt
Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt is an international airport in Schönefeld, just south of the German capital Berlin in the state of Brandenburg.
Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt bears the IATA code BER. Schönefeld Airport was expanded by 970 hectares to a total area of 1,470 hectares for BER, which went into operation in October 2020. The new terminals T1 and T2 are located between two parallel runways, which can be operated independently of each other due to the lateral distance of 1,900 metres. Terminal 5, the former Schönefeld Airport, is located in the northern area.
The airport was originally planned to open in October 2011, five years after starting construction in 2006. However, the project encountered a series of successive delays due to poor construction planning, execution, management, and corruption. Berlin Brandenburg Airport finally received its operational licence in May 2020, and opened for commercial traffic on 31 October 2020, 14 years after construction started and 29 years after official planning was begun. Schönefeld’s refurbished passenger facilities were incorporated as Terminal 5 on 25 October 2020 while all other airlines completed the transition from Tegel to Berlin Brandenburg Airport by 8 November 2020.
