07NOV20 - 08NOV20 / Airports of Berlin | IFATC Event @ EDDB & EDDT

With a delay of only 9 years, a big transition is finally going to happen in the German capital. With new BER airport finally opening in the south of the city, a long story of failure and exploding costs will (hopefully) finally come to an end and BER airport will open as the new and only airport of Berlin. This also means the end for legendary, yet aged and undersized, Tegel Airport. During the Weekend of the 7th and 8th November we will celebrate the opening of the new airport and say farewell to the old one on its final day of operation.

Bye Bye, Tegel! - Sunday Flyout

Date: November 8, 2020
Start Airport: EDDT/TXL “Berlin Tegel International Airport ‘Otto Lillienthal’”
Destination Airport: LFPG/CDG “Paris ‘Charles de Gaulle’ International Airport”
Server: Expert

Description: After serving as the main (West) Berlin Airport for several decades, the era of Berlin Tegel Airport ends on Sunday, November 8, 2020. Back in 1970, the first flight arriving at the airport was one of Air France since the airport was located in the French sector of Berlin. Just like the first flight, the last flight will also connect the capitals of Germany and France. As a tribute, we will also fly between Berlin and Paris to pay a farewell to Berlin’s old airport.

Details: Please be aware that Tegel Airport is a rather small airport not capable to handle a high number of widebody aircraft so it’s highly recommended to stick to narrowbody aircraft. Air France is represented with a wide range of narrowbody aircraft from CRJ to A321.

ATC Coverage: Main Airports for Sunday will be EDDT and LFPG. To put pressure off small Tegel airport, IFATC may also open BER and its destinations listed above once EDDT and LFPG are fully staffed.
