Lufthansa Group Moves Operations to New Berlin Brandenburg Airport
All Lufthansa Group airlines’ operations in Berlin will move from Tegel Airport to the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) with effect from 8 November 2020. The kickoff is scheduled for 31 October 2020.
Eurowings will have its first flight from BER on 4 November while Austrian Airlines, SWISS and Brussels Airlines will commence operations at BER together with Lufthansa on 8 November.
Lufthansa will bid Tegel farewell on 7 November. The last scheduled departure is flight LH1955 from Berlin to Munich. The first flight from BER will take place on 8 November at 6:30 a.m with Flight LH173 from Berlin to Frankfurt.
Lufthansa guests can expect a special highlight at BER: the Lufthansa Lounge which is located in Terminal 1 (Main Pier North) and covers an area of around 1,600 square meters.
Business Class passengers, travellers with Frequent Traveller, Senator or Star Alliance Gold status and HON Circle Members can relax, refresh or work in peace before their flight in the Lufthansa Lounge with its separate Senator and Business areas.
A special atmosphere is created by the surrounding window front with an exclusive view across the airport apron to the Berlin skyline.
At the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), passengers will experience significant bottlenecks at security checks as was recently the case at Tegel.
A centrally organized security checkpoint, more modern technologies at the control lanes and more spacious terminals should make the processes more efficient.
