Where Hunold once held conferences: the school has moved into the former Air Berlin headquarters

The former Air Berlin headquarters is now temporarily used as a school. The district office responsible has rented the building for six years. For a few days, classes from the Anna Lindh School have been gradually moving into the property.

According to a report by Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, there should be one or two teething problems. For example, the furniture is still missing in some rooms, the teachers have no paper available and there should be no toilet paper in the toilets.

The school moved rather quickly. The actual building was shut down by the health department because it was so badly infested with mold due to years of leaks that the officials' hands were tied. The premises on Saatwinkler Damm were empty and were available at short notice. A shuttle bus service was set up for the students from Wedding.

Where Joachim Hunold and his successors used to decide the fate of what was once Germany's second largest airline, primary school children are now learning to read and write. After years of losses, Air Berlin had to file for bankruptcy in the summer of 2017. The subsequent break-up is still controversial, also due to relevant statements by politicians.
