Berlin’s New Airport Will Not Open in June

Due to fire safety problems, Berlin’s brand new airport (BER) will not open on June 3rd as planned.

The opening of the Berlin Brandenburg International airport has been delayed once before, the original opening date was in November 2011. The problem this time is fire and disaster prevention, the reporting channels as well as door barriers.

A new opening date has not been set, as it’s still unclear when the new airport can be opened. August, or maybe September, officials say. The safety goes first.

Update: BER will not open until March 2013.
