Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) has begun establishing airlines’ locations for flight operations at the airport, which is due to open in October 2020. The airport invited the airlines, all participating authorities and ground-handling service providers to a meeting at BER to determine more details on the airlines’ operations.
In the future, EasyJet and Lufthansa will be found in T1. Eurowings will be located in the currently under-construction T2, which will have a direct connection to Pier Nord. Ryanair will use the current Schönefeld Airport terminals, which will be converted to T5 at BER.
The airport has begun by allocating space to the larger airlines in the terminals and in the coming weeks a further 80 airlines will be allocated space. According to the airport, the precise distribution of space in the terminals for individual airlines is the foundation for concretely preparing for flight operations at BER.
Prof. Dr-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg, said, “Preparations for operations at BER are entering a new phase. The airport, the airlines and other partners have all been individually busy with the start of airline operations, and now we are starting joint preparations together. In order to have a good quality of service from day one, we need this long joint preparation phase – this aspiration motivates us all.”
