No Plan B for Berlin airport opening in 2020, board chair says

Berlin (dpa) - Despite the plague of setbacks and scandals that have forced six delays to the opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), the project‘s chief supervisor has rejected alternative plans in the event the latest deadline of October 2020 needs to be abandoned.

"We wouldn‘t be quite right in the head if we issued the deadline and at the same time had a Plan B," Rainer Bretschneider, the head of the supervisory board of the Berlin Brandenburg Airport Company (FBB), told radio broadcaster RBB on Saturday.

"Which construction company would comply with any deadline if the client was distancing itself from its own deadlines?"

"In other words: We want to open at full speed, we want to be finished at full speed and not ponder alternative possibilities."

The FBB announced on Friday that the airport‘s opening had been delayed a sixth time until October 2020.

The airport had been set to open in 2012, but the plug was pulled just weeks before the official opening due to technical problems. It has remained shuttered and under construction since.

The transport hub, intended to propel the German capital into the 21st century, has so far sucked up 6.5 billion euros (7.7 billion dollars) instead of the originally forecast 2 billion, although this was partially due to extension works on the original building plans.
