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.
14 | Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH At the end of July 2019, the completion of the shell of Terminal T2 was celebrated with a topping-out ceremony. Midfield expansion The expansions at BER Midfield are taking shape. At Terminal T2, the shell construction has been completed and the technical and structural expansion as well as the installation of the baggage conveyor system are well under way. Terminal T2 is designed for a capacity of around 6 million passengers per year and provides all functions from check-in, baggage check-in and reclaim, security controls and service facilities to retail and catering. Passengers board the aircraft from the waiting areas in the North Pier, to which Terminal T2 is connected by two bridges. The building is scheduled to go into operation in October 2020 together with the opening of BER. The construction of the new Federal Police building, which is located in the immediate vicinity of Terminal T2 and will ensure terminal operations in BER by the Federal Police, began on schedule in autumn 2019. The handover to the Federal Police for its subsequent exclusive use is planned for summer 2020. We have also pressed ahead with the expansion of the air traffic areas in the Midfield. For example, the M5 and M6 taxiways have been created on the southern runway, which allow aircraft to taxi to and from the runway more Terminal T2 is designed for a capacity of around 6 million passengers per year. quickly. The completion work will take place in the first half of 2020. The planning for the expansion of Apron A with seven aircraft stands and Apron E2 with 15 aircraft stands has been completed.
Real estate location and Master Plan | 15 The Federal Police building is currently being constructed in the immediate vicinity of Terminals T1 and T2. The service building is scheduled to open in summer of 2020. Construction work on Apron E2 had already started at the end of 2019. The work is expected to be completed in 2021. Further expansion of the terminal infrastructure in the Midfield is necessary to replace the double-roof operation. This will result in all commercial air traffic being concentrated between the runways for take-off and landing. The main project envisaged in the Master Plan is Terminal T3, with a total capacity of 12 to 15 million passengers per year. Terminal T3 is to be flexibly connected to the existing pier structures and those to be expanded. In combination with Terminals T1 and T2, we will then be able to handle more than 45 million passengers per year and close Terminal T5. In 2019 an in-depth project concept was developed for T3 with all user requirements, and the relevant interface projects were identified. With the central location of T3 at Willy- Brandt-Platz and the immediate vicinity of the BER railway station, we are intending to upgrade the area and promote the aim of high public transport use of more than 65 %. Concepts have also been developed for selected functional buildings of the Master Plan 2040, such as a new Fire Station North and a workshop and social building for airport management. With the acquisition of ECA, the owner of the exhibition site for the ILA, FBB 2019 has seized the opportunity to expand its space for the wide range of services around the airport and flight operations, and at the same time secure the aviation exhibition at the site.
