Every fifth passenger used Terminal 2 at Berlin Brandenburg Airport in the last twelve months. It opened one year ago today, on 24 March 2022. Since then, it has welcomed around 4.5 million passengers.
The Irish airline Ryanair is the main user of the terminal. The airlines Wizz Air and Norwegian are also located there. A total of 64 destinations are served by the 3 airlines via Terminal 2. The summer flight schedule, which starts next Sunday, will see the three airlines offering a total of about ten percent more flights than during last year’s summer season.
T2 is connected by foot to the main terminal T1 on Willy-Brandt-Platz. Passengers can check in independently or check in their baggage themselves at self-service machines both there and in T1. Security controls are carried out using modern control lanes that allow a high number of passengers flow through. Passengers in T2 will also find a selection of shops, food and service facilities, including Heinemann Duty Free, on the 1,400 square metre Plaza in the security area.
Aletta von Massenbach, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “Terminal 2 has proven its worth – it’s no longer possible to imagine BER operating without it as an integral part of the airport infrastructure. We are very pleased that Terminal 2 is being well received by both our passengers and the airlines. The terminal has played a significant role in making sure that we offer reliable passenger processes at BER, even during peak periods, such as the upcoming Easter holidays.”
Terminal 2 was completed at the end of September 2020 before the opening of BER. It wasn’t used initially due to the low passenger numbers during the coronavirus pandemic. The busiest route at Terminal 2 is the Ryanair connection to London Stansted. It has been used by 330,000 passengers so far going between BER and the British capital.
