It was the busiest summer in Tegel's history: 71,985 passengers and 611 flight movements were recorded on 21 September. The busiest day was 28 September 2012, when almost 77,000 passengers and 618 flights took off and landed at Tegel. A total of 6,857,465 passengers were recorded from June to September at Berlin's biggest airport – an increase of almost ten percent compared to the same period the previous year.

Today, on Tegel Airport's apron, Prof. Dr Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, and Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO of airberlin, personally thanked the employees of all companies operating at Tegel Airport for their work over the past months.

“I wish to thank all employees of the airport and of our partners for their outstanding commitment this summer,” said Prof. Dr Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. “Although many people did not think it possible, we were able to cope well with the additional growth at Tegel. My thanks also go to the airlines – in particular airberlin – for their trust vested in us and positive teamwork,” said Prof. Dr Schwarz.

Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO of airberlin, said, “With this gesture we would like to thank all personnel at the airport. The operational staff at Tegel Airport does not bear responsibility for the repeated postponement of the BER Airport opening, and they strive every day to make the situation for our passengers here at Tegel as pleasant and uncomplicated as possible, within the bounds of what circumstances allow. With regard to the approaching winter and the effects of its weather, we would at the same time like to motivate everyone with these thanks to continue to give their best. Until BER opens, everyone needs to be involved to provide our passengers with the customary service despite the circumstances.”
