New airport BER Berlin-Brandenburg now delayed indefinitely

"(Reuters) - Berlin's delay-hit international airport is not likely to open until 2015, the airport's technical chief was quoted as saying on Wednesday, more than three years later than original plans envisaged for what was meant as the capital's flagship project."

...

"The airport's opening was initially delayed to 2011. That was pushed back to 2012, then to March 2014, then to October 2013 and last week to some point in or after 2014."

It would be nice to keep this thread on-topic so we can use it for updates on the status of the new airport. There's a whole forum where you can ask how to get to your hotel from Tegel.

It's definitely not in keeping with the usual German efficiency!

Is this information correct?

…wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Brandenburg_Airpo…

" It is intended to replace Tegel Airport and Schönefeld Airport, and to become the single commercial airport serving Berlin and the surrounding state of Brandenburg, an area with a combined 6 million inhabitants."

Simply put both Tegel and Schonefeld will cease to exist and Berlin would only have one airport in Bradenburg?

Jordansbulls, that's correct. Both Tegel and the present Schönefeld are supposed to be shutting down when BER opens. But there's been some discussion about keeping Tegel open on a temporary basis and phasing in the new airport. Stay tuned.
