When it opens, Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport will be comprehensively connected to Berlin's public transport system. A network of bus and train connections with many access points will enable passengers, visitors and employees to travel to and from the airport quickly.


A direct and fast connection to the city center of Berlin as well as to the Berliner Ring A 10 was created via a separate access to the A 113 freeway. In addition, the Berlin Brandenburg Airport is directly connected to the four-lane federal highway B 96a, which runs parallel to the A 113 freeway.
