Costs & financing

The building costs for BER during the course of the first stage of expansion come in at around EUR 5,979.9 million. This figure includes all of the construction and planning services undertaken since the start of construction work back in 2005, including the expected subsequent costs, as well as any costs incurred as a result of the opening dates being postponed. These include, for example, costs for implementing the fire safety concept, which has become more complex due to the expansion work, the upgrading of the smoke extraction system, the structural completion of the terminal and other construction and planning services. The total amount also includes EUR 765 million for implementation of the noise reduction program and other structural implementations such as renovation of the north runway. This total does not include any costs which are to be clearly distinguished from the completion work and opening of BER. This includes, for example, the medium-term expansion of the location.
