Terminal 2 will go into operation at BER at the end of March. The airport company and the participating partner companies have been preparing for this for several months. Terminal 2 serves as a check-in building for departures and arrivals. It is connected to the gate areas of Pier Nord in Terminal 1 via two bridges. T2 was completed at the end of September 2020 before the opening of BER.
An initial trial run took place on February 16 with airport employees. The so-called area trial was intended to examine passenger routes more closely. How do passengers find their way from the train station or multi-storey car park to Terminal 2, how well does queuing at the check-in machines or the security checkpoint work, and are all the facilities in the terminal easy to find?
The next step before commissioning is the activation of the security border that divides the terminal into airside and landside areas. A security search began on February 21. This ensures that there are no longer any dangerous/prohibited objects within the building's former operating areas.
This involves approx. 23,000 square metres of terminal space (baggage conveyor system, technical control cabinets, leased areas, etc.) as well as the adjacent outdoor area covering approx. 7,000 square metres.
