Brandenburg’s 3rd vaccination centre at BER Terminal 5 / Comprehensive vaccination a prerequisite for air traffic recovery

The State of Brandenburg will open its 3rd vaccination centre today at BER Terminal 5’s terminal section M (formerly Schönefeld Airport). The airport company has made a sectioned-off area of around 1,300 square metres available to establish the vaccination centre at terminal area M. As early as December 2020, the Berlin Senate opened a vaccination centre at the decommissioned Berlin-Tegel Airport. The airport company made the former TXL Terminal C available for this purpose.

Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “The vaccine is an essential step towards reviving travel and air traffic. As the airport company, we are making every effort to support the vaccination campaigns of the Berlin and Brandenburg state governments. Because everyone knows the way to the airport and BER Terminal 5 is easily accessible from anywhere in the region, both places serve as vaccination centres.

Even if the road to normality is still a long way away; people want to fly, and comprehensive immunisation provides hope for opening the borders without quarantine restrictions.”

Last year, the airport company already made terminal areas at Tegel and Schönefeld available as Covid test centres for Berlin and Brandenburg’s health authorities. Travellers returning from risk areas could get tested for the virus there free of charge between July and October 2020. There has been a Covid test centre for travellers and visitors at Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport, operated by CENTOGENE GmbH, since 1 November. The tests are subject to a fee.
