64 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH Tegel A total of 18,164,203 passengers was registered at Tegel Airport in 2012, 1,244,383 more than in the previous year (+7.4%). Tegel and Schönefeld Airports together counted a total of 242,872 aircraft movements last year (±0.0%). Utilisation of aircraft capacity increased to 73.9% (+1.3%), the average aircraft size from 136 to 141 seats. Cargo Last year, about 76,000 tonnes of air freight were transshipped through the cargo facilities at the Berlin Airports Schönefeld and Tegel (+2%). 32,140 tonnes of air freight were transported by aircraft (+2.9%); Berlin is growing faster than the national average, which posted a minus of 2.2% (ADV). Growth engine here is the loading of cargo onto long-haul passenger flights, which rose by about 10%; about half of the cargo loads today are found on long-haul flights. Additionally, 5,352 tonnes of overnight airmail were flown to Stuttgart in fulfilment of orders from Deutsche Post World Net AG (+12.7%). Moreover, 16,535 tonnes from airlines and 22,278 tonnes from forwarding agents were handled by lorry as air cargo and transported to the airlines’ European hubs through the air cargo facilities in Berlin. Air cargo at Schönefeld Airport In the past year, 5,206 tonnes of air cargo (+12%) and 1,126 tonnes of airmail (-72.4%) were handled in Schönefeld. TNT Express relocated its flight operations from Tegel to Schönefeld in June. Since November, Federal Express has added an additional route from its European hub in Paris via Berlin to the Polish economic centre in Gdansk. The overnight airmail flights conducted by Deutsche Post World Net AG to Stuttgart have been carried out by Air Berlin from Tegel since the start of the summer schedule. DRK maintains an emergency supplies centre at Schönefeld Airport, which is open 24/7, and among others, a flight containing emergency medical supplies for a children’s hospital in Syria took off from here in December. Air cargo at Tegel Airport In the past year, 26,933 tonnes of air cargo (+1.3%) and 4,226 tonnes of airmail (+532.8%) were handled in Tegel. An additional 38,500 tonnes (approximately) in air freight substitute transport for airlines and forwarding agents were handled by the two cargo handlers Wisag Cargo Service and Swissport Cargo Service. The cargo centre and the freight delivery areas are being expanded at this time. One reason for this is the increased transshipment of belly cargo; another is the
imminent tightening of security regulations. Starting in March 2013, all consign- ments from unknown shippers must be screened.

Schönefeld During the first five months of 2012, businesses at Schönefeld profited from the rising numbers of passengers. Aside from units which were not very profitable and consequently closed during the first five months (e.g. Marché Restaurant, the Ess-Bahn and several travel agencies), many of the units were able to increase earnings in comparison with the previous year. Parking was the only area in which revenues could not be maintained at quite the same level as the previous year, despite the increase in passengers. After the announcement at the beginning of May 2012 of the postponement of the planned opening date of BER, negotiations were conducted with all of the retailers, restaurant operators, car hire companies, parking facility operators and duty-free/duty-paid shop operators regarding the extension of their leases beyond 3 June 2012. The negotiations were extraordinarily successful. It was possible to secure extensions of the leases with virtually all of the tenants until the closing of Schönefeld Airport. There were only two operators with whom agreement regarding extension of the leases could not be reached. In the months after the announcement of the postponement of the opening date of BER, development of non-aviation business at Schönefeld Airport remained Our Figures | 65
