Berlin Brandenburg Airport

General information

PAY ATTENTION: Berlin Brandenburg Airport will open in 2020!

Where is Berlin Brandenburg Airport?

Berlin Brandenburg Airport is situated south-east of Berlin. At a short distance from the German capital, but located in the state of Brandenburg. Hence the name Berlin Brandenburg Airport, sometimes with the addition of Willy Brandt, a former politician who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1971. The construction of Berlin Brandenburg Airport began in 2006, the airport was due to open in 2010. However, Berlin Brandenburg Airport has encountered a series of delays, due to various circumstances. The airport’s opening is now scheduled for 2020, ten years later than planned.

Berlin Brandenburg Airport is located just south of Berlin Schönefeld Aiport. When the airport opens, it will consist of a large new terminal and two runways. The northernmost of the two is now being used as the sole runway of Berlin Schönefeld Airport. Soon after the new airport is fully operational, the airports of Berlin Tegel (21.2 million passengers) and Berlin Schönefeld (11.6 million passengers) will be closed. The capacity of the new terminal is 27 million passengers per year, remarkably less than the sum of both. The capacity can be expanded by the construction of two additional satellite terminals.
