The supervisory and executive boards of Germany’s Berlin Brandenburg Airport have met to discuss the status of the expansion project, focusing on the completion of Terminal T2 and plans for Terminal T3’s construction.
The executive board reported to the supervisory board that those working on T2 still hope to complete it on schedule, with the baggage conveyor system, for example, set to be installed in the coming days. The executive board also stressed that, should there be a delay in the commissioning of T2, neither the opening of Berlin Brandenburg nor the shutdown of Tegel Airport would be affected.
“Although the airport company is focusing on the opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport in October 2020, a lot still needs to be thought out for beyond this date. The ongoing planning process clearly shows that Berlin Brandenburg Airport has learned from previous planning, and is not willing to make these mistakes again,” said Rainer Bretschneider, chairman of the supervisory board of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
The board also outlined how plans to develop Terminal T3 have been almost finalized. The discussion ended with talks on how best to use the old Schönefeld Airport in southeast Berlin.
