A day at the airport

Children can get to know Schoenefeld Airport during the school holidays
How does an airport actually work? Berlin Airports is offering children an exciting opportunity to peep behind the scenes during the school holidays. Children can experience a full day at Berlin-Schoenefeld Airport with their parents, friends, guests or grandparents. Holiday organisers and individuals are also very welcome. "A day at the airport" has been held for the past 11 years.

The day at the airport starts at 9 a.m. in airportworld bbi and ends at 3 p.m. Guests are taken on a tour of the airport and have the opportunity to see a demonstration of police and customs dogs at work. The programme also includes visits to the airport fire brigade, the Lufthansa maintenance hangar and the terminal. An additional highlight to be added to the programme for the first time is the opportunity to explore a Mi-8 helicopter. The day at the airport is brought to a close with a view over the flight apron area from the visitors' terrace.

Breakfast, lunch and drinks are provided by Widynski & Roick. Visitors are treated to a Mövenpick ice cream cone to end the day. After the tour they have a chance to explore airportworld bbi until 6 p.m. The current exhibition here allows them to gain a comprehensive overview of the entire Capital Airport BBI.

The holiday promotion is being held weekdays from 16 July until 24 August 2007 and must be booked in advance. Reservations can now be made from Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. by calling +49 30 6091-2257.

"A day at the airport" costs €18 per person. We meet every morning at 9 a.m. in airportworld bbi directly opposite the S-Bahn station Schoenefeld. Interested journalists can also register for "A day at the airport" by calling the phone number given.
