A total of 12,6 million people used BER in the first eight months of this year, such as the capital airport reports in a broadcast.
Last month, 14.800 aircraft took off and landed in the capital region, 400 fewer than in July 2022. 2021 take-offs and landings were counted in August 12.600, compared to 2019 in the pre-corona year 25.000.

“The number of our passengers continues to move at a stable level. During the holidays alone, we welcomed three million passengers at BER. The following applied to all summer travel traffic up to the end of August: The processes at our airport were orderly and largely smooth. The long and thorough preparations made by the airport company and all its partners have paid off.
