ABCD becomes KLMQ / Launch of BER leads to a renaming of terminal sections at Schönefeld Airport

02.03.20 10:15

When Berlin Brandenburg Airport is put into operation at the end of October 2020, Schönefeld Airport will become Terminal 5 (T5) of BER. In order to avoid duplicate names of terminal sections, gates and car parks at BER, the building and car park infrastructure of Schönefeld Airport will already be renamed for the summer flight schedule. The changeover will take place overnight from 30th to 31st March 2020.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “With the renaming of the infrastructure at Schönefeld Airport, we’re taking another step towards BER. The closer we get to the start of operations at the new airport, the more important it is that we make bijective information about the orientation available to our passengers, as well as our employees and process partners. We have therefore decided to carry out the renaming as early as the summer 2020 flight schedule and in time for the beginning of the trial operation.”

In the future, the current terminal sections A, B, C, D will be called K, L, M, Q. Passengers who are only travelling with hand luggage and are already in possession of a boarding pass can use terminal section Q (for Quick Security Check). From here, passengers can then reach all departure gates. In addition, the multi-storey car park and car parking areas will be given a new name. The former numbering system will be joined by the number 5 in front of the previous designated number.

Travellers checking in online today may already see the new designated names.
