Berlin Schönefeld Airport has announced the reopening of Pier 3a in Terminal A following the completion of a modernization program.
The ground floor of the 4,000m2 facility now has an open plan waiting area with five gates and two food outlets for departing and arriving passengers from the Schengen area. It also offers an additional 400 seats, charging points for mobile devices, and fully renovated toilets, thus improving the quality of services for passengers.
On the second floor, there is a further open-plan waiting area with four gates and one food outlet for departing non-Schengen passengers. Before passengers enter the waiting area, they pass through the centralized border control. In future, arrivals from the non-Schengen area will operate via the existing central arrival areas in Terminals A and D.
Prof. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg, said, “The terminals in Schönefeld will continue to be needed in future years in order to be able to successfully manage the continued high number of travelers from and to the capital region.
“Completion of the Pier 3a modernization program is one of many construction projects with which we improve the quality of services for passengers in Schönefeld. Over the next few months, we will also be expanding the security check areas in Terminal B and modernizing the systems for checking luggage.”
