The building authority in charge has given approval for use of the new BER airport in the capital. A spokesman for the Dahme-Spreewald district said on Tuesday the German press agency.

After years of delay and numerous reports, the new Berlin Airport BER has now taken a very important milestone as it opened in autumn this year. The approval clears the way for the opening – according to information from the “RBB” , the building acceptance had already taken place.

This means that Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER) can actually open its gates on October 31 after a construction period of 14 years. The last required certificates were received from TÜV Rheinland last week , so the doubts about the opening are probably lower than they have been for years. The BER should actually go into operation in autumn 2011.

However, six opening dates were canceled due to planning errors, construction defects and technical problems. Fire protection was the biggest problem. Most notable, however, was the postponement in May 2012 – four weeks before the planned opening on June 3, 2012. Since then, eight years of mishaps have passed.

Test run in summer

Airport manager Engelbert Lütke Daldrup then stated that the BER start had never been as safe as it is now. “We do not see any risks with the commissioning in October 2020.”

In the summer, volunteer passengers are now supposed to test the processes in the terminal: From arrival to check-in to the gate – that’s it. Because the flight will not take place until October 31st. Tegel city center airport is scheduled to close on November 8th.

Commissioning is made easier because the number of passengers has collapsed as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Most recently, only around 1000 passengers per day flew at the existing Tegel and Schönefeld airports.
