Berlin Airports

With 34.7 million passengers in 2018, Berlin is Germany’s third-largest airport location. Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH currently operates two airports in Berlin: Schönefeld Airport to the south-east of the city and Tegel Airport to the north-west of the city centre. In order to create the capacities required for the future, Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt is currently being built.

The goals of the company Berliner Flughäfen are to ensure the long-term viability of Berlin's air transportation infrastructure and to develop the existing Berlin passenger airports in line with demand.

Berlin's two airports - Schönefeld and Tegel - are owned by the public sector.
