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.

→ 110 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH B.4 Closure of Tegel Airport after operational startup of BER Planning provides for the closure of Tegel Airport after completion of construction and operational startup of Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The obligation to assume the costs incurred upon the closing of the airport for the clean-up of the buildings and the soil as well as restoration work cannot be finally determined until after the return and the related examination of the property. After the return of the property and the subsequent appraisal concerning the existence of substances harmful to human health, there are risks that BFG will be obligated to remove • possible pollution in buildings (substances harmful to health such as asbestos etc.) or to assume the costs for removal; • possible pollution of the soil or to assume the costs for removal. Due consideration of this risk has been taken through the creation of provisions and the recognition of write-offs. B.5 Damage compensation claims arising from postponement of operational startup of BER FBB has received letters of claim from service providers, tenants, airlines and other companies requesting damages/regress payments as a consequence of the postponement of the operational startup of Berlin Brandenburg Airport originally set for 3 June 2012. The majority of the letters have initially done no more than assert the grounds for the claims; very few of the claim letters include concrete figures or they contain at most estimates. As a consequence, it is not possible at this time to make any definitive statements regarding the total amount of the claims asserted by the various claimants. As of the end of 2015, six suits related to damage compensation claims arising from the postponement of the operational startup were pending. Notification of two more suits has been received from lawyers. FBB assumes furthermore that a part of the claims will be clarified in the course of litigation because there are legal issues that will require clarification. Discernible risks have been given due consideration in the annual accounts by the creation of provisions.

Unsere Zahlen | 111 ← B.6 Progress of the BER project Until the middle of 2015, work at BER was essentially carried out in compliance with the framework schedule of December 2014. All of the primary milestones were achieved on schedule – e.g. the conclusion of the draft planning for smoke removal, the submission of the 5th and 6th addenda for the passenger terminal, the completion of the main cable work and the completion of the pavilions. Delays in the planning and construction procedures occurred from the middle of 2015. The bankruptcy of an important construction service provider in August 2015 in particular caused a delay in construction implementation, especially in the area of the high-voltage current systems and the heating and ventilation systems. On 15 February 2016, the third submission to the fifth addendum was made. During subsequent measurements, it was determined that more rooms in the building must be equipped with smoke removal facilities than first planned. This led to delays in the planning of the smoke removal system and in the construction implementation of the smoke removal system. Systemic fire protection shortcomings in walls in the passenger terminal and the consequent need for renovations led to the necessity to carry out modification work on the interior walls. The delays of three to four months made it necessary to update the framework schedule. There has not been any change in FBB’s goal of opening BER in the second half of 2017. The updated framework schedule has been secured by a comprehensive action plan. There are still scheduling risks, especially with respect to the final construction targets and the acceptance processes. The scheduling risks are reduced with the approval of the 5th addendum to the construction permit for the passenger terminal because this concretises the construction targets and improves the readiness for acceptance of BER. B.7 Financing and financial instruments Owing to the postponement of the operational startup, an increased need for financing in the amount of €2.2bn was identified; among other work, the funds are needed for additional construction costs and expansion measures that are required. Various financing variants for coverage of the additional financing needs were reviewed in consultation with the FBB shareholders. The decision was made to finance half of the financing requirements with funds from shareholders and to finance the remaining €1.1bn by taking out additional loans. The funds from the shareholders will be made available in the form of subordinate loans with a term of 20 years. Negotiations for the new financing loans are
