Berlin-Brandenburg Airport was used by 2022 million passengers in July 1,97. In a direct comparison with the same month last year, there was a slight increase, but it was well below the value that Tegel and Schönefeld had in July 2019: At that time, 3,4 million passengers traveled via the two airports.
In July 2022, Berlin-Brandenburg Airport was around 40 percent below the pre-crisis level. Since the beginning of 2022, this airport has been used by around ten million passengers. This has already exceeded the volume of the full year 2021, in which there were 9,9 million travelers.
Almost 15.200 aircraft took off and landed in the capital region last month, 300 fewer than in June 2022. 2021 take-offs and landings were counted in July 11.600, compared to 2019 in the pre-corona year 25.700. Machine utilization last month was 86 percent. A total of around 2022 tons of air freight were handled in July 2.300, the same amount as in the same month of the previous year, 2021. In July 2019 it was 3.200 tons.
“In the first three and a half weeks of vacation alone, around 1,65 million people traveled via Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The number of passengers was distributed relatively evenly, with an average of 66.000 passengers taking off and landing at BER every day. This presented all employees of the airport company and their partners with great challenges every day. Thanks to our joint efforts, the processes have so far been orderly and largely stable. I would like to thank everyone involved for the responsible cooperation,” said BER boss Aletta von Massenbach.
