Will Berlin Brandenburg International Airport open to passenger air traffic?
The BER airport terminal was poorly designed and built, and those who checked out Berlin Brandenburg International Airport discovered over 11500 technical problems. There were rumors that the terminal would be demolished and redesigned. But this has not happened.

The German federal government owns 26% of the airport, and the rest is divided between the states of Berlin and Brandenburg. In the middle there is a lot of money, and the project will be completed.

Initially, Berlin Brandenburg International Airport will be able to accommodate approximately 6 million passengers annually. Following that the operational level will increase to 28 million passengers per year.
