Information for passengers: Capacity optimisation comes into effect at Tegel30.09.2011
Three extra gates (C80 to C82) are now available to passengers at Tegel Airport as well as three additional security checkpoints and four passport checkpoints. Six new check-in desks numbered C80 to C85 have also been set up.
The capacity optimisation measures are intended in particular to provide relief during peak periods and unscheduled events, such as any delays arising from wintery conditions. The backdrop to these measures is the continuously increasing number of passengers at Tegel Airport. A total of 11,009,041 passengers were recorded at Tegel between January and August this year. This growth of 14.6 per cent compared to the same period the previous year is due in particular to the systematic expansion of the route network and increase in the frequency of flights to numerous destinations.
The terminal hall is a lightweight construction with an area of 1,200 square metres. It was built on what used to be Area K of the airport car park. The new building is therefore adjacent to (but not structurally connected to) the existing Terminal C building. The cost of the investments is in the six-figure range and is being borne by Berlin Airports.
