About The Airport

Welcome to the airport for Germany's capital region
with 35.6 million passenger in 2019.

The airport for Germany's capital region - Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) - opened and began operations on Saturday, 31 October 2020. The three letter IATA code BER was implemented a week before on 25 October. 

Three terminals are operational:
Terminal 1- main terminal in the centre of the airport
Temrinal 2 - north of Terminal 1
(although ready to open, it will not be put into operation because of the lower passenger numbers due to the coronavirus crisis)
Terminal 5 - former airport Berlin Schönefeld, north of the airport

BER has two runways, one 3,600 m long and a southern runway with a length of 4,000 m. The distance between the runways is 1.9 km so that they can be operated independently.

Berlin is the third largest airport location with around 35.6 million passengers annually (2019). Until BER opened, two airport - Berlin Tegel and Berlin Schönefeld - served the region of Berlin and Brandenburg. Berlin Tegel closed for all commercial flights on 8 November 2020. Berlin Schönefeld was integrated into the BER airport and now operates as BER Terminal 5.

The new airport will significantly improve the products and services that we can offer passengers and airlines. Capacities will also grow so that once the industry has recovered we can offer more capacity for Germany's capialt region. We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin Brandenburg!
