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.
100 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH In cooperation with Steigenberger Hotel AG, the project developer ECE Projektmanagement GmbH & Co. KG has realised a 4-star Superior Steigenberger Hotel with more than 322 rooms and a conference centre right across from the terminal. The hotel will commence operations simultaneously with the opening of the new capital city airport. A total of about 10,000 parking spaces will be available to passengers and visitors when BER begins operation. Available parking spaces will be distributed among a total of four car parks, each with about 2,200 spaces, and additional ground-level parking areas. A modern hire car centre will be available to the south-east of the terminal. Leased properties Deutsche Anlagen-Leasing GmbH & Co. KG (DAL) has financed and constructed three buildings for ground handling service providers and one building for the security services providers next to the above-mentioned four car parks and hire car centre. FBB is the lessee and simultaneously general contractor for DAL. Construction activities began in 2010 and have now been completed. Miscellaneous third-party investments FBB has also engaged an investor for the realisation of the cargo building in the Service Area North. Dietz AG has built an air freight centre for belly cargo with an annual capacity of 100,000 tonnes on an area of about 32,000 m². The real estate investor J. B. Harder Verwaltung GmbH & Co. KG has built a maintenance hangar with an area of 12,000 square metres, which will be used jointly by airberlin and Germania, in the western maintenance area of BER. Lufthansa Technik has also built a maintenance hangar in this area which will be used by Deutsche Lufthansa AG itself. Business Park Berlin Business Park Berlin is Berlin’s largest contiguous commercial zone and is a key component of the development of the BER environs. The spaciously landscaped area offers tailored, fully developed plots for companies of all types. The creation of the first two development areas was financially supported using funds provided under the joint agreement “Improvement of Regional Economic Structures”, so preference is to be given to the settlement in the area of companies oriented to production or with a high level of job creation. Thanks to its location in immediate proximity to the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport, its own connection to the intracity train (S-Bahn) network and to the B96a, the A113 and the A117, the site boasts an outstanding transport infrastructure. About 45 % of the plot areas have been sold to investors. Overall development and sale of the plots in Business Park Berlin are being carried out in three phases oriented to demand. The first development phase with a four-lane pri-

The second development phase has also been completed, and the handover to Treptow-Köpenick District is scheduled for the beginning of 2014. A 3-star hotel has started operation, and other building construction is in preparation. By the time BER starts up operations, the first two construction phases of a logistics project consisting of commercial buildings and supplementary office space will have been realised. A certain degree of uncertainty and hesitancy can be seen among investors as a consequence of the postponement of the operational startup of BER. Nevertheless, negotiations are now being conducted with various interested parties regarding the sale of further land areas. Subsequent utilisation of the legacy Schönefeld Airport At this time, the Federal Republic of Germany operates facilities for the diplomatic service of the German government and the flight service for the Federal Ministry of Defence at Tegel Airport. Tegel Airport will be closed when BER is opened. Consequently, Germany is seeking a way to relocate its operations, as simultaneously as possible, to the flight areas and buildings of the current Schönefeld Airport. In preparation for this move, FBB concluded the Planning and Financing Agreement I with the German Federal Agency for Real Estate Management (BImA) as principal in September 2009; it was later supplemented in April 2012 by the more extensive Planning and Financing Agreement II. This later document defines the distribution of tasks and costs between FBB and BImA, contractual milestones for the completion of the work and the handover of partial areas. FBB will apply for and support the required plan revision procedure, modify the landside transport facilities and assure the prompt handover of the construction site to BImA. Furthermore, the agreement regulates the assumption of costs by the BImA for the services provided by FBB. In 2011, the agreements were supplemented and expanded when BImA and FBB signed a lease for Terminal A and the additional transport areas. A heritable building right agreement for the entire area of the future government airport was also signed by the two parties in December 2011. Owing to the postponement of the opening date of BER, the parties have agreed to set new contract dates in the spring of 2014.
