More than 21 million passengers are expected at BER Airport during the travel season for the autumn holidays in Berlin and Brandenburg from October 6 to November 1,1.
That is around 200.000 more passengers than in the same period last year. The daily number of passengers during the holiday season will range between 60.000 and 80.000 passengers, according to the airport in a broadcast. The busiest autumn day is expected to be tomorrow, Friday. In 2020, 335.000 people from the German capital region flew on their autumn holidays, and in 2019 1,8 million passengers were counted.
During the holidays, 63 airlines fly to 128 destinations in 50 countries from the airport in the capital region. City trips to the European metropolises are particularly popular and the Mediterranean Sea is still the most popular holiday destination in autumn. Antalya is the number one destination. In total, more than 7.500 take-offs and landings are planned during the holiday period. On average, around 450 aircraft will use BER every day.
The airport company recommends all passengers to be at the respective terminal two and a half hours before departure and to go to the security check immediately after check-in. Easyjet passengers have the option of using the evening bag drop and checking in their luggage for flights the next morning after online check-in. Lufthansa and Eurowings each offer a complete check-in the evening before. Many airlines also allow self-service check-in or self-service bag drop, which can save time. There are 99 machines in Terminal 1 and another 19 in Terminal 2 available to passengers at BER.
