The big return journey at the capital airport BER stayed this weekend. The location at the airport is stable on the three last days of autumn holidays in Berlin and Brandenburg «and without major problems," said an airport speaker.

64,000 people were traveling across the bus on Sunday alone. For the entire weekend, the responsible persons of almost 190,000 travelers were assumed. Most of them came back from the holiday.

Thus, the passenger volume exceeded the level from the first holiday weekend two weeks ago. At that time, due to the high travel volume, the elaborate Corona controls and a narrow personnel ceiling came to chaotic scenes. Before the check-in switches, long queues formed, some missed their plane despite sufficient lead time. On the runway arriving travelers had to wait again and again on exit stairs and later on their luggage.

entire air traffic industry with problems

Many employees are still in short work or have left the industry completely, they are now missing important places. Already in the summer, the union had warned Verdi that during the crisis 16 percent of the aircraft employees had left the industry permanently. With the relief services with their hard and low-paid jobs, it was even nearly half.

The problem, however, concerns not only the above one year completed BER, but the entire air traffic industry. But nowhere were the problems as big as in Schönefeld on that weekend. Critics also managed some planning errors, among which the airport suffers after its long and scandal-prone building history: too little space in the main terminal between the check-in points and the security checks or non-functioning treadmills are included.

For the return weekend, the BER and the airlines had prepared better. Employees of the airport company Berlin-Brandenburg (FBB) ran as the contact person for the travelers through the terminal. On the apron, the FBB had ordered further staff of ground service providers to support airlines there. The weekend was mastered in this way. The structural problems will continue to burden the BER and the industry.
