Regarding the article published in Die ZEIT on 27/06/2013 - Mehdorn: Tegel will not continue to be run as a 'prime location'

According to a report published in Die ZEIT on 27/06/2013, Tegel Airport is to be upgraded to a 'prime location' and thus continue to be operated for an indefinite period. This information allegedly comes from a confidential document made available to Die ZEIT outlining the management strategy.

Hartmut Mehdorn, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: 'This claim is absolutely false. We have no plans to continue operating Tegel as a so-called prime location. I am not aware of any such document Die Zeit claims to have in its possession. The claims made in the article are based entirely on speculation by the author rather than fact. The fact remains that in September, the Supervisory Board will present a schedule for opening BER.'
