Closure of Berlin Tegel Airport

Last Flight TXL

On November 8, 2020, Air France flight AF1235 was the last aircraft to take off from Berlin-Tegel Airport "Otto Lilienthal", TXL for short. At 3 p.m., an Air France Airbus A320-200 took off in the direction of Paris Charles de Gaulle. This marked the end of flight operations at Tegel and all air traffic in the capital region is concentrated at the new Berlin-Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport (BER).

Handover of keys TXL

The airport site was symbolically handed over to the city of Berlin. According to the valid zoning decision for Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), Berlin-Tegel Airport must be kept operational for another six months after BER is fully operational. During this time, however, no more flights will take place at Tegel.

The last day of TXL in 60 seconds

The day before, the last regular scheduled flights had already been dispatched from TXL. This made November 7, 2020 the last day of regular operations in the more than seven-decade history of Berlin-Tegel Airport.
