More space for coronavirus testing in Terminal M of Berlin Schönefeld Airport / Large testing station at Tegel from next week

06.08.20 13:35

For passengers arriving from high-risk areas and who wish to be tested for coronavirus, more space has been made available at Schönefeld Airport as from today. The testing station has moved from Terminal L to Terminal M. Employees of Charité and Vivantes carry out the tests daily from 8am to 9pm in an area of around 1.300 square metres.


At Tegel Airport, the preparations for moving to a larger area in Terminal D are in full swing. During the coming week, a 1.400-square-metre area will be set up for carrying out coronavirus tests. Until then, travellers can still be tested at the testing station in Terminal A.


The tests are currently still voluntary, but according to the German Federal Ministry of Health, there will be compulsory testing from Saturday.


Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Berlin-Brandenburg Airport GmbH: „We welcome the compulsory testing for those arriving from high-risk areas and we are well prepared for it. The airport company wants to have the best possible framework conditions for the compulsory tests. We have, therefore, provided large, easily accessible terminal areas at both airports, so that testing for passengers is straightforward. This makes travelling under corona conditions easier.”
