With around 34,7 million passengers in 2018, Berlin is Germany’s third-largest airport location. In order to create the capacities required for the future, the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt is currently being built. With over 2,000 employees and great potential for the future, the airport is an attractive employer in a growing environment.
The largest new airport building in Europe is located about half an hour from Berlin's city centre in the state of Brandenburg and is expected to go into operation in October 2020. The existing Schoenefeld Airport will be extended by 970 hectares as part of the expansion into Berlin-Brandenburg Airport. This will make BER Airport a total of 1,470 hectares. This corresponds to around 2,000 football pitches.
The high-tech airport with connections to major cities all over the world is easy to reach. It has its own connection to the A113 motorway and a six-track railway station directly under the terminal. The airport shuttle to Berlin city centre will take about half an hour.
The "Airport City" is being built directly in front of the terminal of the new airport. The 16-hectare site will include an office building complex, an airport hotel with 322 rooms and 4 multi-storey car parks. In addition, a large number of shops, restaurants and doctors' surgeries will also be located here.

The new Berlin Brandenburg Airport in Schoenefeld is already having a positive effect on the economy before it opens. The regional aviation industry has experienced dynamic development in recent years, with significant growth in sales and employment figures.
Many new jobs have been created within a 30-minute radius of the location in recent years. More significant increases are expected after the opening when service companies such as car rental companies settle at the airport.
This will increase the demand for specialists in transport, logistics, aviation and service. In addition to the aviation professions in the narrower sense, such as pilots and flight attendants, technicians for repairs and maintenance, numerous jobs are being created in the field of airlines and handling, catering industry for congress hotels, event management, tourism and retail. And the number of highly qualified, industrial jobs in the capital region will continue to grow.
