Berlin Airports

The stage is set for the future – in September 2006, work was started on expanding Schoenefeld Airport into the new Capital Airport Berlin Brandenburg International (BBI). As of 2011, all air traffic for the Berlin-Brandenburg region will be concentrated at the airport in the south-east of the city. In the first step, Tempelhof Airport was closed on 30 October 2008. This will be followed in 2011 by the closure of Tegel Airport and the opening of BBI.

Berlin Airports guarantees the air traffic infrastructure for the capital region of Berlin Brandenburg with the airports Schoenefeld and Tegel. From 2011, all air traffic will flow through the new Capital Airport Berlin Brandenburg International BBI.

2008 was the most successful year in the history of Berlin Airports. With a record result of more than 21 million passengers, Berlin Airports surpassed the result of the previous year by an impressive 1.4 million passengers or 6.8 percent. Thus, the aviation location Berlin ranks among Germany’s airports with the highest growth. In the ranking of the 24 German commercial airports, Berlin has once again consolidated its third place after Frankfurt and Munich. In a European comparison, Berlin comes in 15th.

Never before has Berlin been so well connected to the rest of the world. In 2008, a total of 82 airlines landed at the Berlin airports. The European route system in particular is tightly knit. Berlin served more than 170 destinations in more than 50 countries in 2008, 127 of which were in Europe. With non-stop flights from Tegel to New York, Bangkok and Doha, the capital of Qatar, the range of long-haul flights offered is constantly improving. Since September 2008, Berlin has also been directly connected to the Chinese capital Beijing.
