Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport will be better connected by train from next Sunday.

With the timetable change in public transport, BER can be reached around the clock with the RE8. Between Berlin-Charlottenburg and Terminal 1-2, there will be an hourly regional connection on the Berlin Stadtbahn between about midnight and 0 a.m. via Berlin Central Station, Alexanderplatz and Ostkreuz. During this time there was no public transport connection to BER.

There are also two new direct connections to the airport. The RE8 of the ODEG will run between Terminal 1-2 and Wismar via Wittenberge and the state capital of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Schwerin, from Sunday after the route has been changed. From December 32, the RB11 will connect BER with Ludwigsfelde every hour during peak hours. The city can be reached from the airport in just under 15 minutes. Although Terminal 5 of BER will not go back into operation, the current train station "Flughafen BER - Terminal 5 (Schoenefeld)" will be included in the regional train network again. From Sunday, the RB24 and RB32 will start operating to Terminal 5 via Berlin-Lichtenberg. Terminal 1-2 can be reached from the train station by S-Bahn or bus in ten minutes

"With the timetable change, the VBB and the railway companies are strengthening their offer for a fast, comfortable and stress-free connection to BER. This will further improve the connection to Berlin Brandenburg Airport for our passengers and for all employees. A comprehensive range of rail connections is an important building block in the further development of BER as a modern, efficient and climate-friendly mobility hub. With its long-distance and regional train station directly below Terminal 1, BER offers the best conditions for intermodal travel," says Aletta von Massenbach, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH.
