09.05.19 11:29

With just under a year and a half before the October 2020 opening, the establishment of the airlines' location for flight operations at BER has begun. To this end, the Airport has invited the airlines, all participating authorities and the responsible ground handling services to the first meeting at BER.

 

The precise distribution of space in the terminals for individual airlines is, for all partners, the foundation for concretely preparing for flight operations at BER. In addition, passengers will need to know the airlines' location in order to be able to plan the best possible way to their departure terminal – so this establishment has begun by allocating space to the big airlines in the terminals. In the coming weeks, the allocation of approx. 80 further airlines will take place in stages.

 

In the future, easyJet and Lufthansa will be found in the central main Terminal T1. Eurowings will be located in the currently under-construction Terminal T2, which will have a direct connection to Pier Nord. Ryanair will use the current Schönefeld Airport terminals, which will be converted to Terminal T5 in BER.

 

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: "Preparations for operations at BER are entering a new phase. The airport, the airlines and other partners have all been individually busy with the start of airline operations, and now we are starting joint preparations together. In order to have a good quality of service from day one, we need this long joint preparation phase – this aspiration motivates us all".

 

Organised and coordinated by a central project management, the opening preparations are taking place within a total of ten teams. The focal points for the teams are - for example - Facility Management, Security, Emergency Management and Traffic Management as well as traffic organisation.
