Making a virtue of necessity: why Tegel remains a worthwhile location for Askania09.10.2012
Summing up the past few months, Müller said: "Naturally, the delayed opening of the new Capital Airport has presented us and all other retailers planning to open shops or restaurants there with some major financial challenges. The opening of the lounge will enable us to finally focus on the future and make the most of Tegel remaining open for an extended period." In his welcoming speech, Müller underlined efforts made by the airport operator to find a temporary viable solution for Askania at Tegel. Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, then addressed all those present: "I am delighted that we are able to open the Askania & Friends Lounge today. We have promised to work with all BER tenants on finding individual solutions. Today you can see that we have followed through on our promise."
