Die Flughafengesellschaft FBB betreibt den Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt (BER) mit seinen drei Terminals. Berlin ist der drittgrößte Flughafenstandort in Deutschland; gemessen an den ankommenden und abfliegenden Passagieren (ohne Umsteiger) sogar der größte. Die Flughäfen Schönefeld und Tegel fertigten im Jahr 2019, vor der Coronavirus-Pandemie, rund 35,65 Millionen Passagiere ab. Für das Jahr 2020 rechnet die Flughafengesellschaft mit insgesamt rund neun Millionen Passagieren.
The airport company Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB) operates Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport (BER) with its three terminals. Berlin is the third biggest airport location in Germany and ranks first in terms of origin and destination traffic (not counting connecting passengers). In 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic, the airports in Schönefeld and Tegel handled around 35.65 million passengers. For 2020, the airport company expects a total of around nine million passengers.
DFS airport tower In November 2009, the toppingout ceremony was held for the new control tower of Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH at the future BBI Airport. At 72 metres high, the BBI Tower will be the second-highest control tower in Germany. The tower is expected to be completed in September 2010 and go into operation in the third quarter of 2011. According to current forecasts, 250,000 aircraft a year, on average 700 a day, will receive permission from the tower to take off and land. Construction work begins on fire stations In September 2009, the foundations were laid for Fire Station West, which will not only house the control centre of the airport fire department, but also the airport control centre, the emergency services control centre, the security control centre and the technical control centre. The 81 by 81 metre future main station will have three vehicle halls with up to 25 parking spaces for various emergency vehicles and sleeping and recreational rooms for a team of around 50 shift workers in service 24-hours a day. Furthermore, the nearby winter service hall will house special winter service equipment and large vehicles. Work started on constructing Fire Station East in September 2009. The station con tains three vehicle halls with 14 park ing spaces for emergency vehicles and besides offering firefighting services for aircraft, primarily works to prevent fires at the terminal. Technical maintenance Construction work began on the technical maintenance building in June 2009. Once completed, the building will provide administrative departments for technical facility management, aviation and information and communication technology and contain workshops and the main data processing centre for the new airport. Water supply and disposal A large part of the supply and disposal infrastructure on the BBI site was completed in 2009 in line with the latest environmental standards. In 2010, the networks will be finalised and completed. The first drinking water line for BBI has been in place since October and can supply an average consumption of 2,000 cubic metres of drinking water per day – i.e. enough for a small city with 21,000 inhabitants. Power In May 2009, the topping-out ceremony was held for the three new power stations for BBI. These stateof-the-art buildings and facilities will supply the airport with heating, cooling and power from a combined heat and power unit (CHP) as well as emergency power. In December, the new substation for BBI was completed and BBI was connected to the public power supply. Two transformers, each with an output of 31.5 MVA (megavolt amperes), secure the power supply for the airport facilities. Depending on power needs, they can cover some 70,000 households. 11
Outlook The next steps on the way BBI construction site Construction work continues to run at full speed in 2010. The first highlight this year is the toppingout ceremony for the BBI Terminal in May. The new face of the airport with its glass and steel facade is already clearly recognisable. The fire stations, buildings for special equipment, winter service and ground traffic services will all go into operation and the aircraft operation areas, structural work on the south pier and the operational buildings will all be completed this year. 12 to becoming the new airport BBI trial runs Prior to the opening of BBI, all processes will be tested intensively during a six-month test run starting in May 2011: baggage carousels will be set into motion, check-in desks manned for testing purposes, security checkpoints tested and all imaginable scenarios simulated. Berlin Airports will also look for extras to put the new Capital Airport through its paces. Berlin’s biggest relocation projects During the night of 29 October 2011, the spectacular move will take place. Two will become one: the airports Tegel and Schoenefeld will close in the evening and all portable equipment, machines and instal- lations will be moved to the new Capital Airport overnight, where the first charter plane will take off on the morning of 30 October 2011. New name On opening in late October 2011, the new Capital Airport will be called Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The new name is being introduced to market the airport internationally. The new airport will also have the byname Willy Brandt.
