A total of 2,464,301 passengers were recorded at the airports Tegel and Schönefeld in September; 5.9 per cent more than in the same month the previous year. The two Berlin airports thus handled 19,065,340 passengers by September 2012; 5.7 per cent more than in the same period the previous year.

Airport CEO Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz: "Obviously, we are delighted with the further rise in passenger numbers. This positive trend is also an incentive for the airport company to ensure Tegel and Schönefeld continue to operate successfully until the new airport opens. Our employees have achieved this in September, traditionally the busiest month of the year in terms of passengers, as in previous months."

672,893 passengers were recorded at Schönefeld Airport last month; 0.6 per cent more than in September 2011. In the first nine months of the year, 5,427,287 passengers were recorded in Schönefeld (+1.2 per cent).

Tegel recorded 1,791,408 passengers in September; 8.0 per cent more than in the same month the previous year. 13,638,053 passengers were handled in Tegel between January and September (+7.7 per cent).

The busiest day in terms of passengers was Friday, 28 September, on which a total of 105,097 passengers were recorded, 76,987 in Tegel and 28,110 in Schönefeld.

The number of flight movements at both airports in September was up 2.1 per cent on the year, totalling 22,706 take-offs and landings. A total of 183,481 flight movements were recorded at Tegel and Schönefeld between January and September; up slightly on the previous year by 0.1 per cent. At 3,044 tonnes, air freight rose in September by 28.4 per cent.
