→ 106 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH insolvency application of Air Berlin on 15 August 2017. In the middle of October Air Berlin had discontinued all long-haul flights from Berlin and returned the Airbus A330 fleet to the leasing companies. Despite strong marketing efforts to retain the trust of the passengers less Air-Berlin flights were booked, which also had implications on the passenger numbers from and to Berlin. The last flight of Air Berlin took place on 27 October 2017. Other airlines could not fully cover the requirements– due to capacity utilisation–. Since October 2017 various airlines therefore used wide-body aircraft also within Germany and Europe. The operative problems of Air Berlin and the subsequent insolvency are reflected in the traffic numbers. From September 2017 the passenger numbers have fallen at Tegel Airport compared to the previous year. New airlines or destinations, which would be welcomed in Berlin Tegel, were among others Air Canada rouge to Toronto, Rusline to Kaliningrad, Mykonos and Faro with Eurowings, LOT to Warsaw. Due to the additional four aircraft stationed by Ryanair in September 2016 the passenger volume grew at Schönefeld Airport by 10.4 % compared to the previous year. In addition easyJet stationed a twelfth aircraft in Schönefeld. The volume of Ryanair increased by 23.4 % to 5.04 million passengers, that of easyJet by 9.6 % to 5.09 million passengers. New destinations, which were added by the engagement, from Berlin-Schönefeld in 2017 were among others: Kerry, Eilat, Billund, Krakow, Lviv and Chişinău. When routes within Germany are compared, Munich continues to be the most used route within Germany from Berlin, flown with more than 2.0 million passengers in 2017 (+1.4 %). In Europe besides London and Paris, Zurich with almost 1.1 million passengers represents an attractive destination. b) Air freight volume Around 90,000 tons of air freight was transshipped through the freight systems of the Berlin Airports in 2017 (+ 2%), whereby respectively 20 % had China or the USA as their destination. The freight loaded into the aircraft was with 49,291 tons 4.9 % higher than the previous year. In addition there are 4,392 tons, which were transported by night airmail. B.2 Commercial management The business development in the commercial segment was positive once again in 2017. Further rising passenger numbers as well as revenue-increasing measures had positive implications on the results of operations in almost all segments compared to the previous year. Whereas the Tegel location features a negative deviation in revenues compared to the previous year, it was, however, possible to increase the revenues at the Schönefeld location compared to the previous year so that the sales revenues for the Non-Aviation business in total

In particular in the parking and gastronomy segments the level of income increased substantially seen overall over both locations compared to the previous year. a) Tegel Airport In 2017 it was not possible to achieve the level of revenues from 2016. The retail and gastronomy offer for passengers at Tegel Airport was in fact further optimised, however the thus resulting positive revenue effects were more than compensated for by the Air Berlin insolvency and the thus associated falls in passengers. The insolvency of Air Berlin had a particularly strong effect on the Duty Free / Duty Paid and parking segments. With the parking it was not possible to achieve the revenues of the previous year despite price increases once again in the public parking. Merely the revenues in the gastronomy segment in 2017 are substantially higher than those of the previous year again. The results of operations in the airport advertising segment continues to be satisfactory. It was possible to slightly exceed the level of the previous year here. b) Schönefeld Airport For the Non Aviation segment the business at Schönefeld Airport developed very positively in 2017. In almost all segments it was possible to profit from further rising passenger numbers. In addition, numerous measures were implemented, for example on the land-side in Terminal A respectively in the external area between Terminal A and C, in order to take the rising demand into account and to further improve the attractiveness of the offers for passengers still. In particular the parking and the retail trade made a decisive contribution to the positive income development in Schönefeld. Thanks to market-oriented price adjustments, the opening of the premium multi-storey car park P4 as well as the expansion of the online advance booking platform it was possible to achieve a substantial increase of more than 20 % with the parking revenues once again. Due to the further optimisation of the advertising portfolio the level of revenues of the previous year was achieved in the field of airport advertising. B.3 Real estate FBB is the owner of plots of land with a total area of about 1,890 hectares. About 77% of this area is required for the airport infrastructure needed directly for operations. At the moment, about 184 hectares of the remaining areas in the immediate proximity of the airport are available for property development including marketing. The areas feature very different location qualities and development conditions, thus commercial areas have been developed to a various extent and are capable of marketing. The land-side development offers a high potential for income in order to strengthen the own financing power of FBB. Therefore, an infrastructural mission statement was developed within the Mas-
