Just in time for the planned opening of the capital's airport BER on October 31, its Terminal 2 (T2) has also been completed - but it will not be needed for the time being due to the low passenger numbers during the Corona crisis.
In contrast to the main terminal T1, the construction of T2 was not carried out by the airport company itself, but by a general contractor, the company Zech Bau. It was unclear to the very end whether the building, designed to handle around 6 million additional passengers a year, would be ready in time for the opening.
The capacity of the T1 is estimated at 27 million passengers per year. If the airport had been opened at full capacity and without the T2, it would have been narrow. Last year, Berlin Airports counted around 35 million passengers. This figure had collapsed drastically during the Corona crisis.
