History of Berlin Brandenburg International Airport



The construction of the international air harbor began in 2006 year, and if initially it was planned to put the airport into operation in 2014, then later, due to the problems with financing this project, it was decided to postpone the commissioning of the airport in 2019 year, and later - for 2020 year.

For the implementation of the project to build the Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, funds were allocated in the amount of 5,5 billion euros, although initially the amount of construction was only 1,7 billion euros, which, according to experts, will lead to the fact that the air harbor will pay for itself for a long time.

With the commissioning of this air harbor, the International Airport Berlin Tegel is expected to close.

It is assumed that with the opening of the airport, the international air harbor will annually serve at least 20 million passengers.
