Berlin Brandenburg Airport announced that new airport will open on October 31st 2020, nine years later than the date envisioned when construction started in 2006. BER Airport boss Mr Engelbert Luetke Daldrup said that the move to the new airport will be phased. He said “We still have 11 months of hard work in front of us, Luetke Daldrup said. A test phase of systems at the airport will run from April to October, then BER can be opened safely and reliably.”

BER international airport is under construction near Berlin, the capital of Germany. Named after former Chancellor Willy Brandt, it is adjacent to Berlin Schönefeld Airport in Schönefeld, 18 kilometres south of the city centre. It was originally intended to replace both Schönefeld and Berlin Tegel Airport and become the single commercial airport serving Berlin and the surrounding State of Brandenburg, an area with a combined 6 million inhabitants. However, it is now planned that it will not replace any, with Schönefeld Airport currently being expanded due to rising passenger numbers, and Tegel which will remain open after a referendum.

With projected annual passenger numbers of around 34 million, Berlin Brandenburg Airport would become the third busiest airport in Germany. This would surpass Düsseldorf Airport and make it one of the fifteen busiest in Europe.
