Flughafen BER (2)

The departure of thousands of participants and guests after the end of the Special Olympics World Games on Sunday also has implications for passengers at the capital's airport.

The airport operator pointed this out on Friday. Most of the delegations that have come to Berlin for the World Games for the Mentally and Multiply Disabled will be leaving via Airport BER by Tuesday. On Monday alone, around 6,000 guests from all over the world are expected to depart from Schoenefeld back to their home countries.

Airport operator recommends travelling by public transport

At times, passengers may therefore experience disruptions when travelling to the airport at the weekend and at the beginning of the week. The airport company recommends using public transport. Because athletes of the Special Olympics at BER should be able to depart as stress-free as possible, there may also be restrictions for those who want to drive up to Terminal 1 by car. This also applies to the use of the short-term parking spaces there.
