The contract with Planungsgemeinschaft Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg International, the consortium responsible for project management and site supervision, will be terminated.

At its meeting last week, the Supervisory Board of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH discussed postponing the opening date of the new airport under construction as well as the next steps to be taken to complete Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt.

According to an official statement on the Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, the opening date of the airport will be postponed to 17 March 2013.

It was also announced that Dr. Manfred Körtgen, Managing Director for Operations and Construction, will leave the company and the contract with Planungsgemeinschaft Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg International, the consortium responsible for project management and site supervision, will be terminated.

The new airport will replace three airports in Berlin. Tempelhof Airport closed in 2008, and Tegel Airport is scheduled to close in 2013. The terminal infrastructure of the existing Berlin Schönefeld Airport will be closed in 2013, with Berlin Brandenburg overtaking Schönefeld’s southern runway.

Construction costs are estimated at 2.5 billion Euros.
