Judgment provides clarity and legal certainty / Higher Administrative Court confirms the airport company’s approach to structural expansion

23.01.20 12:50

Today’s ruling by the Higher Administrative Court of Berlin-Brandenburg confirms the airport company’s approach to two structural expansion measures. In its decision, the 6th Senate allowed the construction of new flight operation areas, Terminal 2 (T2) and the Federal Police building at Berlin Brandenburg Airport. As a result, this procedure was also concluded in favour of the Berlin-Brandenburg Higher Aviation Authority and the airport company FBB. The Higher Administrative Court of Berlin-Brandenburg granted the FBB the construction of aprons and taxiways in SXF and Terminal 2 as well as the Federal Police building at BER for which they had applied. The Berlin Brandenburg Citizen’s Association had filed a complaint against this without success. 

Already on Monday (20th January 2020), the Higher Administrative Court of Berlin-Brandenburg had dismissed a similar complaint by four surrounding municipalities as inadmissible (reference number OVG 6 A 2.18).

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “The airport company welcomes the judgments of the Higher Administrative Court because they have provided clarity. In its decision, the court confirmed that the Berlin-Brandenburg Higher Aviation Authority was right to approve the measures requested by the FBB for the expansion of the capital city’s airport, both in terms of the construction of new buildings and new flight operation areas. The ruling confirms the expansion of the flight operation areas and gives us legal certainty for Terminal 2.
