Funny pic with the guy carrying the baby. I bet that didn't have political undertone.
A guy carrying a baby is normal in Germany. Especially in Berlin. Have a look at Prenzlauer Berg...

nice pics - nice airport !!!
I really like the architecture of the terminal building. Looks like structures from Berlins most famous architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel who influenced the Neoclassicism in Germany. It also has elements of the "Bauhaus" style.
Looking foward to autam 2011 - first take off

Well, sure it is in most parts of metropolitan north Europe.
But I bet my ass it's still with a political undertone by a liberal designer.

looks like more airports are built on the layout, where a terminal is situated between 2 runways. BBI, Incheon, suvarnabhumi (bangkok), Kuala lumpur international airport...

that's what i like about BBI and other airports
I thinks it looks great and the terminal building is clear and easy for passangers, not like Heathrow or Atlantas Hartsfield Jackson Aiport
and the runways could work independent from each other ... much better

That's the advantage of an airport built from the scratch!

However, I believe the Berlin Airport operators could (if they wanted or had to) use the old terminal as well, for example, if traffic shoots up and the new terminal was battling capacity constraints.

Also, the German Government is building a brand spanking new terminal for protocol services (i.e. Government jets, helicopters, etc.). So politicians and royalty won't have to use the public area.

the old terminal of schönefeld sxf will not be a part of the new airport.

here you can see the old sxf: (in the north is sxf - in the south bbi)


this is the new plan:
so as you can see sxf will become a "business park"

Topping-out ceremony for the centrepiece of BBI to be celebrated on 7 May

Berlin Airports are celebrating the topping-out ceremony for the terminal, the centrepiece of the new airport on 7 May. The ceremony will mark the achievement of yet another milestone, less than 550 days before the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport BBI is due to open. At the official ceremony on Friday, 7 May, the topping-out wreath will be lifted into position on the roof of the terminal. At the weekend, on 8 and 9 May, Berlin Airports invites people from Berlin and Brandenburg to come and take a look at the progress that has been made in this important construction project.

“The topping-out ceremony for the centrepiece of Berlin’s new airport demonstrates quite clearly that the foundation for Berlin Brandenburg International Airport BBI is up and standing proud”, said Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, Chief Executive Officer of Berlin Airports. “The completion of the structural steel work for the roof of the terminal marks yet another important milestone along the path the inauguration of the new airport on 30 October 2010. Now the focus will be on filling the new airport with life.”

“We are delighted to be celebrating the topping-out ceremony on 7 May, together with our partners, the companies and construction workers involved in this massive project and our staff”, said Manfred Körtgen, Managing Director of Operations/BBI of Berlin Airports. “In spite of the hard winter, work has progressed ceaselessly and we are very proud to be able to place the topping-out wreath on the roof of the terminal absolutely on schedule.”

7 May 2010: the topping-out wreath is placed on the top of the roof

The topping-out of the new BBI terminal will be celebrated in an official ceremony on 7 May, starting at 11 a.m. The ceremony will be attended by Dr. Peter Ramsauer, Federal Minister of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs, Klaus Wowereit, Governing Mayor of the State of Berlin, Matthias Platzeck, Prime Minister of the State of Brandenburg, Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, Chief Executive Officer of Berlin Airports, and Manfred Körtgen, Managing Director of Operations/BBI at Berlin Airports.

8/9 May 2010: We build, you watch!

After the official topping-out ceremony, Berlin Airports will be holding a topping-out weekend at the BBI Infotower on Saturday, 8 May, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., and on Sunday, 9 may, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., to which everyone is invited to come and view the progress that has been made on the construction site from the observation platform of the BBI Infotower. Admission to the BBI Infotower is €2, concessions €1. There will be a programme of events around the BBI Infotower, with stage shows, competitions, an Armin bouncy castle, information about the new airport, information stands, a digger operating license, fun and games for children and a choice of food and drinks.

Construction site tours and helicopter flights

Visitors will also be able to get a close-up look at the terminal with a construction site or helicopter tour over the site. Both construction site tours and the helicopter flights can be booked in advance online at www.berlin-airport.de, www.air-service-berlin.de or on the day at the BBI Infotower. There will be reduced ticket prices for the construction site tours and helicopter flights on both days of the topping-out weekend. Visitors who have booked a construction site tour have free admission to the BBI Infotower.

Additionally: a new aerial photo of the construction site:

Just to keep in mind that the intercontiental tourists and business travelers are only interested in the Berlin city in that part of the world alone while what Munich and Frankfurt are offering are the cities and their vast hinterlands.

It is very unlikely that the new Berlin airport will be the 2nd best airport in Germany because there is very little demand on the airport amenities offered at MUC in the Berlin market as the MUC market is much more high-yield.

Germany's 2nd largest airline after Lufthansa, Air Berlin, announced yesterday that they will add 3 new long-haul routes at Berlin Airport from October this year: to Dubai (3 weekly flights initially), to Miami (x2) and to Mombasa/Kenya (1x). This is good news as Air Berlins stated that they want to build up capacity in time for the opening of this new airport late next year, which they intend to develop into a 'hub'. Berlin currently isn't served by too many airlines providing direct intercontinental routes - the 2 major 'hubs' in Germany currently are Frankfurt and Munich. Lufthansa already stated they want to continue focusing on those 2 hubs rather than developing a 3rd one (which is a shame for Berlin). But at least 'Air Berlin' is loyal to its home base. ... and hopefully, one day, Emirates will be allowed to fly there too, and airlines such as Singapore, Thai, Malaysia and JetStar (Qantas) offer direct services to Berlin also (note: flying times from Berlin to East / Southeast Asia are 1 hour less than from other western European hubs!!).
