2009 Biggest infrastructure financing operation in Europe We were also able to achieve further success in 2009 by securing total funding for BBI in the form of a ¤ 4 billion loan package, which helped us realise the seventh-largest infrastructure financing operation in the world and the biggest in Europe. Only Berlin is able to double its air traffic capacities Let’s take a look at the future: 2011 will see a new player on the European air traffic market – BBI Airport. The German airport system will rest on three pillars instead of two. The goal is to take the Berlin-Brandenburg region into the top 10 airport locations in Europe with BBI. Twenty years after the fall of the Wall, the metropolis Berlin has been put back on the map of Europe in terms of air traffic. BBI is not only the most significant development project in the German capital region, it is also at an invaluable geographical advantage: BBI is the only airport in Europe with sufficient capacities for the next decade. Berlin is the only place in Europe capable of doubling its air traffic capacities to 45 million passengers in the next few years and thus securing its growth and competitiveness. BBI will therefore enable Berlin to be even better con- Passenger growth 20.0 % 15.0 % 10.0 % 5.0 % 0.0 % -5.0 % -10.0 % German commercial airports Berlin Airports 2003 3.9 % 9.2 % 2004 7.9 % 11.8 % 2005 6.3 % 15.3 % nected to the world than it is today and become a key East-West hub on the continent.

BBI Well under way: The new Capital Airport BBI is where Berlin’s future is being built. We are currently in one of the most exciting phases of construction: 2009 saw BBI rise up from the ground – a face has now been given to the new Capital Airport. Now everyone can see what over three years ago only planners and architects were able to recognise: an airport is being built here. All construction work is on schedule The project dimensions are huge: the construction site is the size of 2,000 football pitches, up to 3,000 temporary construction site workers a day worked on the underground rail link, the terminal, 8 the aprons, the new south runway and the road connections in 2009. After three years of intensive building activity, most of the work on the new BBI has already been completed. All work on the airport’s technical facilities, other buildings, the new tower and power stations is on schedule. More than a billion euros already awarded to local businesses The construction of the airport has been a huge success for the local economy, even two years before the opening of the new Capital Airport BBI. So far, more than 300 companies from the Berlin-Brandenburg region have been able to secure contracts for BBI as a result of tender notifications. In terms of value, almost two-thirds of all contracts have gone to regional companies. In December 2009, the ¤ 1 billion mark was passed for contracts awarded to regional companies. By the end of 2009, around ¤ 1.7 billion worth of contracts were awarded. A total of ¤ 2.5 billion have been invested in BBI. Terminal topping-out ceremony in May 2010 The development of the new Capital Airport BBI is coming along in leaps and bounds. In May, we will celebrate the topping-out ceremony together with all the companies
