Municipality of Schönefeld and airport company are intensifying their cooperation

November 26, 2018 Airport No Comments Email Email

A good two years before operations start at BER in October 2020, the munici-pality of Schönefeld and Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB) are strengthening their cooperation. In view of the forthcoming opening of BER with the continued operation of the current Schönefeld airport site (in future BER Terminal T5) and the continuing growth in passenger numbers, Udo Haase, Mayor of the municipality of Schönefeld, and Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Schönefeld Airport, presented their joint plans today for the further development of the area surrounding the airport in a policy statement at Schönefeld Town Hall. This declaration brings together measures for the next two to five years for the development of areas in Schönefeld and the improvement of the traffic and technical infrastructure at the future BER Airport. The land use plan and development plans of the municipality of Schönefeld and the airport company’s master plan BER 2040 form the strategic basis for the measures.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup:

“Both we and the municipality of Schönefeld are united in our strong interest to ensure that the area surrounding the future BER Airport is attractive. The opening in 2020 is in sight. That is why we will continue to maintain our longstanding good working relations with even more commitment than before and together strengthen the positive factors regarding the location of the airport region”.

Dr. Udo Haase:

“The airport and the municipality of Schönefeld go hand in hand. We have worked together closely and there has been mutual trust between us for years. This relationship demonstrates, with the policy statement, that further efforts right up to the opening of BER are extremely important for both sides. This close cooperation is a reflection of the fact that we can only achieve our goal when we work together”.

Accessibility of the BER

One focus of the agreement is on the redundant and multidimensional accessibility of BER. The complete interconnection of Jürgen-Schumann-Allee will be guranteed following the closure of today’s Schönefeld Airport (in future BER Terminal T5) in 2025. In addition, the airport company will develop a new concept for the redundant accessibility of motorised individual traffic in the direct vicinity of the BER. This will also apply to other routes in addition to Jürgen-Schumann-Allee, such as the transversal between the A113 and A117. The extension of the underground line U7 from Rudow to Schönefeld station will also form part of this project.

Development of space and infrastructure

Another focus is on developing the areas at today’s Schönefeld Airport now. The development of the areas after the motorway exit “Schönefeld Süd” (north and south of the B road B96a) should ensure that what people first see as they come into Schönefeld is an urban area built to a high standard. The municipality of Schönefeld supports the airport company in the development of the logistics park and the “Northgate” commercial area. In addition, the municipality of Schönefeld and the airport company intend to work together closely on marketing and aquisition measures for the development of the site. The immediate vicinity of the airport is planned to be used for airport-related facilities in particular.
