Airport processes Berlin Brandenburg tested


Around 400 volunteers tested various future processes at the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) on Tuesday. For the first time, these were almost exclusively non-employee participants, said an airport spokesperson.

Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, director of BER, welcomed the participants on Tuesday. In the run-up to the opening of the airport, 9,000 volunteers will test all processes. Various processes were already tested over the past few weeks, the important difference being that these tests were mainly conducted by the new airport’s direct employees.

The participants, among other things, test check-ins, baggage drop-offs, security checks and arrival procedures. By the end of October, the Brandenburg is set be operational, after about nine years of delay. The responsible construction authorities have now approved the use of the main terminal T1. It is uncertain whether terminal 2 is ready. However, due to the corona crisis, the airport already expects a significantly lower capacity utilization when the first aircraft take to the skies.
