Berlin Brandenburg Opening Postponed

Flughafen Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH has announced that the new airport Berlin Brandenburg (BER) will not open on schedule on 3rd June. Technical problems in fire protection engineering make a postponement indispensable.

Burkhard Kieker, Chief Executive of visitBerlin, said: “This is a responsible decision. In the interest of the tourism and convention destination Berlin, a launch of BER on a safe and comfortable basis is better than a possibly bumpy start, which impairs the arrival and departure of our guests. What we now expect is a calm approach and an opening date that will demonstrate the full qualities of the new airport.”

Berlin can be easily reached through the existing airports Schönefeld and Tegel, and all flights to and from Berlin can be carried out as scheduled. At the beginning of the year Berlin recorded a double-digit growth in room nights.
