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.
86 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, Schönefeld Consolidated Management Report for the Fiscal Year from 1 January to 31 December 2013 → 01Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH The year 2013 was a year of radical change for the Airport Company. After the planned operational startup of Berlin Brandenburg Airport in 2012 was postponed, work immediately began in 2012 to assess the current status and to reorganise the BER project. Based on the findings from the assessment of the status, especially the results from the tests of the fire protection system started in Q4 2012, it was decided at the beginning of January 2013 to postpone the operational startup of BER scheduled for 27 October 2013. The Supervisory Board decided during its meeting in the middle of January 2013 that it would not set a new date for operational startup, but would instead wait until all of the assessments had been concluded and the complete planning documents for the construction projects which are still in progress were finished. Following the decision to postpone the opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport indefinitely, the shareholders and Supervisory Board decided to reorganise the entire company. In March 2013, Dr Hartmut Mehdorn was appointed CEO of the Airport Company. The new CEO implemented a new management structure and launched the action plan SPRINT. The objective of SPRINT is to concentrate all of the Company’s activities on the opening and to start up operation of Berlin Brandenburg Airport as safely and quickly as possible. Until that time, the air traffic in the capital city region must continue to be handled at Schönefeld and Tegel Airports. This prompted the Airport Company to create an upgrading programme for both locations in 2013 so that the infrastructure, which was showing its age, could be updated to a modern standard during the period until the BER opening. Thanks to the efforts of everyone involved, it was possible to set a new record of 26 million passengers in 2013.
Our Figures | 87 A Restructuring of the Company Dr Hartmut Mehdorn has been CEO since March 2013. Heike Fölster has been CFO since May 2013. Horst Amann was Chief Operations Officer until October 2013. Members of management include the heads of the business fields Operations, Marketing and Sales and staff members. Additionally, several administrative departments and the action plan SPRINT all report directly to the CEO. B The Construction of Berlin Brandenburg Airport B.1 Overview of the BER project It is not possible to say at this time when Berlin Brandenburg Airport will be opened. The action plan SPRINT was launched to focus the activities of the entire Company on the opening. The Project Management Office (PMO) began working within the framework of SPRINT on a campus in the BER Airport terminal on 1 May 2013. All of the tasks related to the operational startup of BER, from the construction work which remains to be done to approvals, trial operation and to the opening of the airport itself are bundled in this programme. The most important principle is a step-by-step approach with the objective of breaking down the work which must be completed into manageable packages so that the complexity of the task can be mastered. The critical point for the completion of construction continues to be the fire protection. Solutions have been developed in the action plan SPRINT for this and other issues; they have in part been realised.
