Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) Opening Postponed

Flughafen Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH has announced that the opening of the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), originally scheduled for June 3, 2012, has been delayed due to technical problems with fire protection engineering.

Burkhard Kieker, CEO of visitBerlin, said in a statement, “This is a responsible decision. In the interest of the tourism and convention destination Berlin, a launch of BER on a safe and comfortable basis is better than a possibly bumpy start, which impairs the arrival and departure of our guests. What we now expect is a calm approach and an opening date which will demonstrate the full qualities of the new airport.”

The existing airports at Schönefeld and Tegel will remain open, and all flights to and from Berlin will be carried out as scheduled.
