Karsten Mühlenfeld, CEO at Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “Almost 10 million passengers in Tegel and nearly 4 million in Schönefeld are very good figures mid-year.

In Tegel, we will invest 19 million Euro in maintenance measures this year. And by investing 3 million Euro in Schönefeld, we will create the requisite conditions for ongoing growth in air traffic.”
