No way to finish the construction of BER, the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, in time. It was originally scheduled to welcome passengers in 2011, but it had already postponed its grand opening four times.
Berlin Brandenburg International Airport is an international airport under construction, located adjacent to the current Berlin Schönefeld Airport in Schönefeld and it was intended to provide the German capital with a modern transport hub with international routes and to replace the smaller airports of Tegel and Schönefeld. Suddenly, BER airport has been hit by a series of failures and delays.
Berlin Brandenburg International Airport was expected to open in the past years and, at least, in 2016. The BER airport, planned as the Europe’s “most modern” airport, was intended to handle more than 25 million passengers a year and to put Berlin into the Olympus hubs.
With over 20,000 employees, Berlin Brandenburg International Airport will be more like a small city than an airport. The terminal building will include a amazing big marketplace and its very own train station. New railways and new bus lines will connect the Berlin Brandenburg International Airport with the Berlin city center, enabling visitors to get to the inner city district and back in a short time.
Berlin Brandenburg International Airport is now the much-delayed new airport. It has been hit by yet another setback, meaning the hub won’t be ready in time for the next planned opening date this year. Like a nightmare, it’s a kind of doomed project, originally scheduled to welcome passengers in 2011 and which is postponed again and again. So, what happen now to BER?
