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.
96 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH Express also flies from to Gdansk via SXF from its European hub in Liege. UPS has its European hub in Cologne and flies between this city and SXF. The German Red Cross took off from its emergency supplies centre at SXF, which is open 24 hours a day, in September to bring a planeload of supplies, including a mobile hospital, to Jordan near the Syrian border in September. Last year, about 28,000 tonnes of air cargo / mail (+3.5 %) and about 40,500 tonnes in air freight substitute carriage were transshipped at Berlin-Tegel for airlines and forwarding agents by the two cargo handlers Wisag Cargo Service and Swissport Cargo Service. Pursuant to stricter security requirements (Regulation (EC) 300 / 2008 in conjunction with Regulation (EC) 185 / 2010), all consignments from unknown senders have been screened since 2013; among other equipment, a dual view x-ray machine for freight of up to 180 cm by 180 cm is in use. Upgrading activities are now going on in the freight centre so that the freight volume, which has risen by more than 60 % since 2009, can be handled more efficiently and effectively. This is another improvement at Tegel which has become necessary because of the facility’s continued operation. Traffic volume in the year-on-year comparison developed as shown here: Traffic Volume 2013 2012 Tegel Commercial aircraft movements 170,300 166,191 Passengers (Thousands) 19,592 18,164 Schönefeld Commercial aircraft movements 58,350 65,053 Passengers (Thousands) 6,727 7,097 Total Commercial aircraft movements 228,650 231,244 Passengers (Thousands) 26,319 25,261 B.2 Non-Aviation Management From the perspective of Non-Aviation Management, 2013 was significantly more positive than 2012, which was so strongly affected by the postponement of the opening of BER. All of the segments at Tegel Airport were able to benefit from the continued increase in the number of passengers. In the retail segment, the duty-free / duty-paid shops in Terminals C and D made especially strong contributions to the positive income development in this year.
Our Figures | 97 The services in the retail, service and restaurant segments for passengers at Tegel Airport were optimised once again in 2013. In the retail segment, it was possible to implement new concepts with Die kleine Gesellschaft, Capi Electronics and Fabriano Boutique (which will be continued at Berlin Brandenburg Airport) to expand the range of products and simultaneously make the offered products and services more appealing and interesting to passengers. The service segment was expanded as well, providing Berlin Tourist Info, a cash point from the Berlin Volksbank and four foreign currency cash points from Travelex. Travelex also took over the currency exchange counter from ICE. It was possible in the restaurant segment to find new tenants, who will continue to be present at BER Airport, to occupy the space vacated by the expiring lease with SSP. Services for passengers have been enhanced by the addition of the bar “ick bin ein Berliner”, the NU, Pellegrini, “auf die Hand”, Berlin Coffee and the Augustiner. Moreover, the Coffee Fellows concept was implemented in the non-profitable space of Askania. The Tegel Terrace was closed for business reasons in September. The declining numbers of passengers at Schönefeld Airport, a consequence in no small part of the relocation of Germanwings to Tegel in October 2012, have in contrast had a negative impact on the earnings position in virtually all segments. The duty-free / duty-paid segment was the only one in which it was possible to increase revenues slightly in comparison with the previous year. In an effort to make the services more appealing and interesting to passengers, the “buch und presse” units of BHG in Terminals A and D were replaced by units from the tenant LS travel retail – RELAY. In addition, a cash point from the Mittelbrandenburgische Sparkasse and two foreign currency cash points from Travelex were installed. The range of services for passengers was supplemented by new and additional vending machines for toiletries and toothbrushes. The travel agency L’tur was closed at the end of May. The parking segment also suffered from the Germanwings relocation to Tegel, as was reflected in the lower utilisation of the car park capacity. Despite an increase in the hourly rates at P2 in April, the revenue level of the previous year was not reached. The revenue development in the parking segment at Tegel improved significantly again in comparison with the previous year. A two-stage optimisation of the parking fees was introduced here so that the smooth flow of traffic at Tegel could be assured despite the continuing rise in the number of passengers and the limited capacity of the parking facilities. Both daily and hourly rates were increased at P1, P2 and P5 in April. In August, the daily rates at P1, P2 and P5 were increased a second time. Despite the difficulties which occurred because of the postponement on short notice of the BER opening in June 2012, the earnings position in the airport advertising segment proved to be positive in comparison with the previous year.
