BER operators want to put another terminal into operation at Easter
BERLIN / SCHÖNEFELD (dpa-AFX) – After repeated handling problems in the main terminal of Berlin-Brandenburg Airport, the operators want to put another terminal into operation soon. The airport boss Aletta von Massenbach announced after a conversation with Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU), as the ministry announced on Thursday at the request of the German press agency. Terminal 2, which has not yet been used, is to be put into operation at Easter 2022 and thus further straighten out the processes during the holiday travel season. In addition, air traffic will be expanded to the second runway by mid-December at the latest.
The airport company had previously submitted another report to the ministry. The federal government is co-owner. With the increasing number of holidaymakers, a lack of staff and space problems led to chaos at the airport during the autumn holidays. Last week there were delays and flight cancellations after an incorrect evacuation of the security area. / Bf / hoe / maa / DP / he
