Berlin's continuous struggle with the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER)

Berlin's continuous struggle with the new BER Airport

The new Berlin Brandenburg airport (IATA: BER, ICAO: EDDB), which is supposed to replace both current airports Tegel and Schönefeld and is situated to the south of Berlin, was originally planned to be launched in 2010, but due to poor communication, construction and planning, the opening date is estimated to be as far away as 2019. While the initial construction of the Berlin Brandenburg Airport started in 2006, many upgrades like a third runway, an additional terminal and another freight facility are already in planning for it although it is yet to open in the first place. The development of this airport is the subject of debate in Germany due to budgetary overspending and delays. Due to all the postponement, the people of Berlin are often heard joking about the date of expiry for the champagne that was bought for the opening in 2010. However, once open, it will be able to accommodate all types of private aircraft.

If you'd like to land at this new generation airport you'll have to wait a few years. You can count on LunaJets to have your private jet ready to take you there as soon as it opens.
