October has been the busiest travel month of 2022 so far. A total of
2.1 million people used BER Airport last month, a good 30,000 more than in September 2022 and around 170,000 more than in August 2022. The number of passengers was therefore around two-thirds of the volume in October of the pre-pandemic year 2019 with 3.2 million guests. 1.7 million people travelled via BER in October 2021.
Last month, around 16,000 aircraft took off and landed in the capital region – 100 more than in the previous month September 2022. In October 2021, just under 15,000 aircraft movements were counted at BER; in October 2019, it was a total of 26,000 at Schönefeld and Tegel airports. A total of around 17 million people have already used BER Airport this year.
A total of around 3,000 tons of air cargo were handled last month, 145 tons more than in September 2022. In the previous year 2021, it was 2,600 tons; in October 2019, it was around 3,100 tons of air freight.
Aletta von Massenbach, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “The well-prepared and largely smooth start to the autumn holidays also contributed to the good passenger numbers in October. Many people took advantage of the holidays to take off to somewhere sunny once again. We have further optimised the processes in both terminals to make travelling as easy as possible for our passengers. Our digital offers, such as the self-service check-in and reserving a time slot for the security control via BER Runway, were particularly popular and well received.”
