Opening: The BER Berlin Brandenburg Airport
On October 31, 2020 the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (short BER) is scheduled to open. The existing airport Berlin Tegel (TXL) is set to close while Schönefeld Airport (SXF) is going to become Terminal 5 (T5) of the new BER. The new airport is set to become the German capital region’s air traffic hub. The BER will feature two new terminals (T1 and T2), and a second runway to be commissioned on the south side of the airport.
The transfer between the terminals will take eight minutes. Terminal 1 consists of five levels including observation deck for visitors, check-in as well as departure and arrival gates. Tegel Airport (Northwest of Berlin) is set to close on November 8, 2020.
