The Berlin Airports, consisting of the airports Schönefeld, Tegel and Tempelhof, safeguard the air traffic infrastructure for the capital city region Berlin-Brandenburg. The Berlin Airports are demonstrating record growth. In 2005 they have moved into third place in passenger count compared to other German airports. The market share for the three Berlin airports is 10 percent and at 15 percent, the location is growing almost three times as fast as the average German passenger airport. Beyond that, Berlin is the largest low-cost airport on continental Europe.

The official expansion permit has been issued and the financial concept has been completed, detail planning and construction preparations are under way.
