  • Berlin Brandenburg Airport (IATA: BER, ICAO: EDDB) (German: Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt) is an international airport under construction, located adjacent to the current Berlin Schönefeld Airport in Schönefeld 18 kilometres (11 mi) south of the city centre of Berlin, the capital of Germany. It was originally intended to replace both Schönefeld and Berlin Tegel Airport, and to become the single commercial airport serving Berlin and the surrounding state of Brandenburg, an area with a combined 6 million inhabitants. However it is now known it will only replace Tegel, as the old Schönefeld airport is in current expansion because it will still be required to cope with rising passenger numbers.With a projected annual passenger number of around 34 million, Berlin Brandenburg Airport would become the third busiest airport in Germany, surpassing Düsseldorf Airport, and one of the fifteen busiest in Europe.Air Berlin, Germanwings and easyJet are expected to become the leading carriers at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, having announced the intent to relocate and keep their hub / base operations there which they currently maintain at Tegel and Schönefeld airports today.Originally planned to open in 2010, the airport has encountered a series of delays due to poor construction planning, management, execution and corruption. Unfinished construction and corrective work means an opening prior to late 2017 is unlikely according to the WSP CBP time frame. Remarks made in August 2014, by airport CEO Hartmut Mehdorn, point toward 2017 or 2018. Mehdorn announced no opening date as expected 14 October 2014, so a special commission established by the Brandenburg Parliament will retain oversight of the project. Current estimates suggest that the airport will open in 2018 or 2019, at the latest. Recent reports mentioned the 3rd quarter of 2019. It became clear at the end of May 2016 that the airport lost the battle for a swift approval of the underground station redesign efforts. Thus the recently placated emergency timetable with the aim of still opening in 2017 is invalid. As of such an opening in 2018 or later is the only possibility. In detail the airport was not able to perform with the fifth appendix for the construction permission. It got declined. The sixth appendix failed as well. Thus there is no construction permission as of aug 16 and delays are implicit (later than 2018).Current total costs amount to €5.4 billion. Additional plans suggest additional costs amounting to an extra €2.19 billion. As of 3 June 2015, Germany applied for an additional €2.5 billion spending approval at the EU, in addition to the previous total of €4.3 billion. Total costs thus mount to €6.8 billion. The EU will only permit an additional €2.2 billion. The EU permitted an additional 2.2 bio on 3 aug 16. Although the airport has yet to open, officials are planning a possible third runway for approximately €1 billion and other new projects such as an additional terminal, expanded baggage system and another freight facility. The total additional spending would amount to €3.2 billion. The board warned of a further rise in costs because the airport will not open before 2017. The current time-cost frame is limited to 2016; the estimated cost of €6.9 billion is current as of May 2016. (en)

Unfinished construction and corrective work means an opening prior to late 2017 is unlikely. Remarks made in August 2014, by airport CEO Hartmut Mehdorn, point toward 2017 or 2018. Mehdorn announced no opening date as expected 14 October 2014, so a special commission established by the Brandenburg Parliament will retain oversight of the project. Ryanair marketing head Kenny Jacobs announced a date of March 2018. Current estimates suggest that the airport will open in 2018 or 2019, at the latest. Recent reports mentioned the 3rd quarter of 2019. It became clear at the end of May 2016 that the airport lost the battle for a swift approval of the underground station redesign efforts. Thus the recently placated emergency timetable with the aim of still opening in 2017 is invalid, and opening in 2018 or later is the only possibility. In detail the airport was not able to perform with the fifth appendix for the construction permission. It got declined. The sixth appendix failed as well. Thus there is no construction permission as of August 2016 and delays are implicit (later than 2018). The fifth got permitted as of 6 October 2016. Traffic commission chairman Burkert declared in October 2016 that an opening in 2017 is impossible Filing for the sixth appendix is still incomplete as of 1 November 2016 and thus an opening in 2018 is unlikely.The authority will approve the 6th on 27-jan-17Airport head Muehlenfeld hinted at 2018 on 27-dec-16.The airport company issued bargains for the construction firms if completed swiftly as of 21 November 2016.Current total costs amount to €5.4 billion. Additional plans suggest additional costs amounting to an extra €2.19 billion. As of 3 June 2015, Germany applied for an additional €2.5 billion spending approval at the EU, in addition to the previous total of €4.3 billion. Total costs thus mount to €6.8 billion. The EU will only permit an additional €2.2 billion. The EU permitted an additional €2.2 billion on 3 August 2016. Although the airport has yet to open, officials are planning a possible third runway for approximately €1 billion and other new projects such as an additional terminal, expanded baggage system and another freight facility. The total additional spending would amount to €3.2 billion. The board warned of a further rise in costs because the airport will not open before 2017. The current time-cost frame is limited to 2016; the estimated cost of €6.9 billion is current as of May 2016. (en)
  • Berlin Brandenburg Airport (IATA: BER, ICAO: EDDB) (German: Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt) is an international airport under construction, located adjacent to the current Berlin Schönefeld Airport in Schönefeld, 18 kilometres (11 mi) south of the city centre of Berlin, the capital of Germany. It was originally intended to replace both Schönefeld and Berlin Tegel Airport, and to become the single commercial airport serving Berlin and the surrounding state of Brandenburg, an area with a combined 6 million inhabitants. However, it is now planned that it will only replace Tegel, and the old Schönefeld airport is currently being expanded because it will still be required to cope with rising passenger numbers.With a projected annual passenger number of around 34 million, Berlin Brandenburg Airport would become the third busiest airport in Germany, surpassing Düsseldorf Airport, and one of the fifteen busiest in Europe. Air Berlin, Germanwings and easyJet are expected to become the leading carriers at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, having announced the intent to relocate and keep their hub / base operations there which they currently maintain at Tegel and Schönefeld airports today.After almost 15 years of planning, construction began in 2006. Originally planned to open in 2010, the airport has encountered a series of delays and cost overruns due to poor construction planning, execution, management, and corruption. Current estimates suggest the airport will open in 2019. (en)
