In our series Backstage Berlin Airport, we take you behind the scenes at Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
On 24 March, the first passengers flew from the new terminal at BER to London Stansted. The Irish airline Ryanair will be the main user of T2. On Backstage, the airport manager explains what the new terminal is needed for and the Federal Police present the new security checks.
Terminal 2 is open
The BER team is there to help and advise travellers on days when the airport is particularly busy. Our colleagues Milena Braun & Katy Krüger explain who is part of the team and what their tasks are.
Our colleagues from the Operations department report in #backstage how things went after the commissioning, which problems currently have to be overcome and which projects are in the pipeline for the future.
One year BER
The airport company trains apprentices in numerous professions. We have our own training workshop for the technical professions. Trainer Michael Knopf and two of our trainees take you behind the scenes.
Our airport is always worth a visit, even if you're not travelling. Why not take a look at our works of art? Most of them can be found in the public area of Terminal 1. Here are a few impressions:
Art at BER
Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH is based on the former site of Henschel Flugzeug-Werke. Founded in 1934, the subsidiary of the Henschel & Sohn company from Kassel developed into one of the most important German armament factories for fighter planes and glide bombs during the National Socialist era. Aircraft, weapons and weapons systems that brought death and destruction throughout Europe were developed, tested and built in Schönefeld.
