Master Plan BER 2040 as a strategic model

Quartiersplatz Midfield Gardens BER

The BER 2040 Master Plan was established as a strategic model for further developing the airport infrastructure. It provides the framework for an organised urban development of the infrastructure for medium and long-term passenger development and landside property development.

The development of the BER 2040 Master Plan is based on five leading ideas:

  • Creating a centralised and flexible terminal infrastructure by way of additional gates, pier extensions and new satellite constructions with a flexible layout.
  • Developing Airport City as an urban location that extends from the terminal to the A113 motorway.
  • Establishing networked mobility and intermodal connectivity
  • Establishing secure and economic medial infrastructure
  • Sustainability and digitalisation an opportunity for the future (smart BER)

The objectives for the further development of the location are as follows:

  1. Availability tailored to the various requirements
  2. Operational stability
  3. Resource utilisation
  4. Positive customer experience
  5. Expansion of non-aviation service provision

The Master Plan gives impetus to the economic and structural development of the region. Therefore, an infrastructural mission statement was developed within the BER 2040 Master Plan project for BER as a property and investment location. It features areas for the development of the airside and landside districts and their main uses.

The Master Plan offers the airlines, the regional economy and all other partners and service providers clear orientation regarding the development of the airport location.

The Master Plan is not a rigid instrument; it will be adapted to changing economic conditions. Sustainability issues, especially in media development and mobility, as well as digitalisation, will be given even more weight.
