New Berlin airport almost ready for take-off

Once travel restrictions are eventually eased, passengers flying to Berlin are set to land in the German capital’s long-awaited new airport – which will open later this year after a nine-year delay.

The Berlin-Brandenburg airport was due to open in March 2011.

A series of delays and scandals – including two redesigns of the terminal, the construction planning firm going bankrupt and a corruption whistleblower claiming his coffee was poisoned – put it on hold.

Building authorities have finally given it clearance for take off on 31 October. It will replace the capital’s old Tegel and Schönefeld airports.
