Safety is number one priority: Technical issues concerning fire protection installations make deferral of opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport necessary08.05.2012
In view of these developments, the airport operating company has decided to take the following steps:
- Preliminarily putting a stop to the move of air traffic from Schönefeld and Tegel to BER
- Deferral of the opening of the new airport until after the summer holi-day period
Recently the planned inauguration of the airport on 3 June 2012 has be-come a race against time, and at the moment 7,000 construction workers are currently working on Europe’s largest airport construction site. The Open Days on 12 and 13 May which were planned some time ago are not affected by the deferral of the opening date.
