Aletta von Massenbach, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “Double the passenger numbers compared to the previous year shows that BER is being well-received. People from the region were pleased to have more opportunities to fly on holiday last year. At the same time, tourism to the capital region has also gathered pace again. Together with our partners at BER, we were prepared for the rapid increase in passenger traffic and responded by opening Terminal 2 and offering more digital and automated services. The positive feedback from our guests encourages us to continue on this path in 2023.”
