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.
124 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH B.7 Progress of the BER project The value of major parts of tangible assets is based on the assumption of the successful startup and operation of BER. After the indefinite postponement of the opening date in January 2013, an appraisal of progress and defects as well as a review of the circumstances related to obtaining approvals for the passenger terminal were conducted and completed in the summer of 2013. The results were subsequently analysed and planning tasks based on the analysis were scheduled. A consolidated time schedule for the passenger terminal is now being prepared so that a definite date for the opening of BER can be set. The schedule gives consideration to influencing factors from planning, contracts awards, construction progress and any required approval processes and startup phases. Another prerequisite is the business agreement with the companies regarding addenda and billing issues. To ensure the performance of the actions required for this, new structures and responsibilities have been established both on the part of FBB departments for construction planning, management and supervision and of the service providers for the passenger terminal. One key new element is the installation of the action plan SPRINT, which has brought about intense communication among all of the departments and has already produced initial success. The contact to regulatory authorities is controlled in structured form by the SPRINT organisation. The planning principles have been expanded in the form of additional construction work in the passenger terminal as prerequisite for the completion of the safety features and the remedy of the defects which have been determined (e.g. planning revisions for the smoke removal systems). Clear instructions are being drawn up for the companies doing the work of completion of the remaining construction; the overhaul of the boxes in the ceiling void has started. Compliance with the prerequisites for legal permits are being reviewed and successively processed so that acceptance of the authorities can be obtained, assuring the operational startup. The operational startup of BER is also dependent on the provision of funding. The project costs for BER have been reviewed and compiled in a cost forecast. All in all, it can be assumed that BER will be carried out to a successful conclusion.
Our Figures | 125 B.8 Marketing of the areas at Business Park Berlin FBB is planning to sell the plots which have not yet been sold at Business Park Berlin. FBB will continue its marketing activities and assumes that the operational startup of BER will stimulate demand. B.9 Financing The amount of €299.1m of the capital contribution of €1.2bn resolved by the shareholders’ meeting of FBB was paid in the fiscal year just past. These additional shareholder funds, the BER long-term financing and the leasing financing cover the financial needs of FBB as they can be estimated at this time. The loans for the BER long-term financing taken out by FBB are secured in full by guarantees submitted by the three FBB shareholders. It must be assumed that further financing will be required as a consequence of the renewed indefinite postponement of the date for the operational startup, depending on the time which actually lapses until the airport starts operation. An estimate of the amount will not be possible until all of the assessments have been concluded, the additional investments which will still be required have been determined and it has become possible to set a new date for operational startup. B.10 Financial instruments Major financial instruments within the sense of Section 289 (2), no. 2 HGB existed in the Company in fiscal year 2013 in the form of receivables and payables. Far and away the greatest part of the liabilities is due to banks as a consequence of the BER long-term financing. The receivables make up only a small portion of the balance sheet total. With the exception of the BER long-term financing, the use of these financial instruments means that the Company is vulnerable to the risks of payment flow fluctuations, price changes, failures and liquidity solely to the degree usual in the industry. The interest for the long-term financing represents a major component of the payment obligations of FBB. Since the interest expenses for the BER long-term loans are determined on the basis of the variable 3-month Euribor, FBB is vulnerable to substantial risks from payment flow fluctuations in the event of a change in the interest level.
