Relaxing start to summer holidays from TXL and SXF

Off into the summer holidays

Holiday time means travel time! From Wednesday, 19 July 2017, the summer holidays start in the regions of Berlin and Brandenburg. Travelers flying from Tegel or Schönefeld airports are spoilt with 171 destinations to 56 different countries. During the holiday period, a total of 80 airlines service the capital. As a result, passengers are asked to be aware of increased travel activity.

Arrive without the stress

Depending on the travel destination, passengers are advised to arrive at the airport between two or three hours before take-off to ensure a stress-free start to the holidays. An extra warning for car drivers – construction work is taking place until 2 September 2017 at the Späthstrasse and Adlershof junctions on the A 113 motorway. Works are also planned from 3 September 2017 on the Rudolf-Wissel bridge (A 100), which may cause disruptions on the way to Tegel airport. Passengers are recommended to take public transport to both airports.

Park safe and sound

The P4 multi-storey car park at Schönefeld Airport is currently off-limits. Reserve space is however available to passengers at the P6 car park. Another option is the P3 car park at the future Berlin Brandenburg Airport site. From there, a shuttle service that runs every 30 minutes will collect passengers and deposit them at Schönefeld airport. Our tip is for passengers to reserve a parking space in advance at: https://parken.berlin-airport.de/home/index.

Make the most out of the airport

A round-the-clock, free WiFi connection („_Free Airport WiFi“) for both passengers and visitors is now available at both Berlin airports. New lounge amenities at Tegel Airport's Terminal C are now also available. At a fee of 36 euros, which is also payable by PayPal, passengers can take advantage of unique views of all the happenings at the airport ramps.
