TXL is a fine airport in itself, but it doesn't allow for any growth. I'm sure it's also fairly annoying for intercontinental travelers that most trips to/from Berlin involve a transfer in some other European airport. Not very appropriate for one of Europe's largest cities and one of its most important national capitals.

Does anyone have an idea of the estimated extra costs of the BER?

Probably enough to build another airport from scratch

-----WARNING - READING BELOW THIS LINE MIGHT CAUSE YOU TO START DRINKING--------

Original cost was 2.7 billion - now its 6.6 billion and going up

The site of the old russian airfield near Sperenberg, 45 km distance from Berlin's city centre, would have been the better choice for the BER.

Far less permission problems, 24 h - traffic possible:

People keep saying cost of BER is enough to build another airport from scratch, so why don't they just do exactly that?

Der Postillon, of all sorts, proposed that. Now, there is talks about opening BER only in 2019.

Schönefeld airport extension

Additional capacity is to be generated at Schönefeld Airport in 2016. Terminal B is to be extended by approx. 600 square metres on the land side which entails extending the approach side by the current outdoor roof area. When conversion is complete, passengers can look forward to additional check-in machines and an improved queueing area for security controls. Within this context, the baggage area in Terminal B is also to be enlarged by 40 per cent. Car park P4 is to be fully upgraded. In the form of Terminal D2, an entirely new arrival terminal is being built west of Terminal D. Spanning almost 3,800 square metres, this building will feature three baggage carousels. And the coach parking area is also being relocated to a new area in P6.

This project is starting to creep me out.

Having said that, isn't time to begin construcion of Terminalerweiterung 1 in order to cope with future, projected demand? After all, as it stands, BER is already over capacity.

But where?
Considering this:
http://www.thelocal.de/20160427/berl...may-never-open

Is it better Schönefeld, Tegel or Sperenberg?

When it comes to BER, you have to analyse it from BER time frame, not from a regular one.
