About The Airport

Welcome to the airport for Germany's capital region
with 23 million passengers in 2023.

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. 

Two terminals are operational:
Terminal 1- main terminal in the centre of the airport
Temrinal 2 - north of Terminal 1

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 23 million passengers annually (2023). 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. 

The new airport significantly improves the products and services offered to passengers and airlines. Capacities can grow so that we can offer more capacity for Germany's capial region. We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin Brandenburg!
