Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt

Berlin Brandenburg Airport
  • Berlin Brandenburg Airport has the byname Willy Brandt. The international code for all flights to and from Berlin is BER.
  • The terminal building is spread across six floors and located between two parallel runways (midfield airport), which are 1,900 metres apart and can thus be operated separately. The terminal, gate positions and aircraft parking stands are also located compactly between the runways. The majority of the ground noise thus remains inside the airport fence.
  • The terminal has 16 jetways on the main pier and a further nine jetways on the south pier. Aircraft can be reached by walk-boarding from the north pier. Berlin Brandenburg Airport has a total of 85 aircraft parking stands.
  • The north runway is 3,600 metres long and is still being used by Berlin Schönefeld Airport. BER has also been given a completely new 4,000-metre-long and 60-metre-wide runway. A flexible taxiway system in between ensures a high level of performance at Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
  • Berlin Brandenburg Airport is approved for CAT III b flight operations in bad weather.
  • Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt spans an area of 1,470 hectares, equivalent to around 2,000 football pitches.
  • On going into operation, BER Airport will be easily accessible by bus and train. The airport's train station is located directly below the terminal and is just a few minutes away from the check-in area. S-Bahn trains, the Airport Express as well as regional and long-distance trains stop at the train station.
  • Airport City is located right in front of the terminal of the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport. An urban service complex is being developed on the 16-hectare site including around 148,000 m² of gross floor space.
