The supervisory board of Berlin Brandenburg Airport has held a closed meeting to deal with the last steps before the commissioning of the airport.
During the two-day meeting, key aspects of future air traffic, including the topic of long-haul connections, were addressed, as well as financial issues, transportation connections and future real estate development.
Members of the management boards of the as yet unopened airport’s two most important airline partners, easyJet and Lufthansa, were also present, as was airport association ADV.
“They were good, constructive talks. It was important to the supervisory board to deal with the period in which the airport has established itself and is growing, even before it goes into operation,” said Rainer Bretschneider, chairman of the supervisory board.
Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, chief executive officer of operator Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg, added, “The airport will also face big challenges after its opening. Our infrastructure must grow with the rising number of passengers, the processes at the airport must continue to become more efficient and we need to offer attractive products in order to make the changeover easier. At the closed meeting, we were able to make it clear that Brandenburg has the potential to become a successful airport and we have a clear idea of what needs to be done to achieve this.”
