Exhibitor profile

Berlin Brandenburg Airport Location
With 35.65 million passengers in 2019 Berlin is the third biggest airport location in Germany. Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH currently operates two airports: Berlin-Schönefeld Airport in the south east of Berlin and its subsidiary, BFG Berlin-Tegel Airport, which is situated in the north west of Berlin city centre. It is intended that all air traffic in the German capital region will be concentrated at Schönefeld.
It is for this reason that the Airport Company is planning and building the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport – or BER for short. The new Terminal T1 building is scheduled to open on 31 October 2020. Tegel Airport will be closed at 8 November 2020. In parallel to this, the Airport Company has drawn up the Master Plan for the expansion of the location tailored to the various requirements in order to also be able to make sufficient capacities available in future decades. BER is due to be developed further as a multi-terminal location.
The “Willy Brandt” Berlin Brandenburg Airport has BER as an IATA code. Schönefeld Airport has been expanded by 970 hectares in area as part of the expansion works. The new airport will cover a total area of 1,470 hectares, a figure corresponding to approximately 2,000 football pitches. It is located between two take-off and landing runways laid parallel to each other, which can be operated independently from each other due to the lateral gap of 1,900 metres between them. The associated gate and aircraft positions are also located compactly between the runways.

Master Plan
Thousands of new jobs will be created in the airport region over the coming years. In 15 years around 40,000 people may directly earn a living with a job at Berlin Brandenburg Airport. This was the conclusion of a study from the market research institute Conoscope and the Competency Centre for Economics, Infrastructure, and Public Services at the University of Leipzig on behalf of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg (FBB). At the moment, more than 20,000 are employed as a result of activities at Tegel and Schönefeld airports. FBB itself has around 2,200 staff.
This is linked with an ever-increasing number of passengers. Passenger volumes for 2040 are predicted to reach around 55 million. A strategic mission statement – the BER 2040 Master Plan – was drawn up in order to provide suitable infrastructure tailored to the forecast passenger volumes by 2040.
The master plan describes further potential steps in airport planning in order to handle the forecast increase in the number of passengers, to continue to drive property development, and to expand media infrastructure. It describes the planned implementation of the infrastructural and urban development mission statement against the background of the sharply rising passenger numbers and puts forward suggestions for the gradual expansion of the new BER Airport tailored to the various requirements over the course of phases.

The development of the BER 2040 Master Plan is based on three leading ideas:
• Creation of a centralised and flexible terminal infrastructure by way of additional gates, pier extensions and new satellite constructions with a flexible layout.
• Development of a central plaza at the existing BER railway station and passenger transport system with the aim of absorbing and distributing traffic flows.
• Development of an Airport City, which extends from the terminal to the A113 autobahn

The Master Plan lays down the framework for the economic and structural development of the region. Therefore, an infrastructural mission statement was developed within the BER 2040 Master Plan project for BER as a property and investment location. It features areas for the development of the airside and landside districts and their main uses.
The Master Plan offers the airlines, the regional economy and all other partners and service providers an orientation regarding the development of the airport location.
