The opening was originally planned for November 2011, then postponed to June 3, 2012 - and now delayed for another 2 to 3 months (hopefully even longer...).
That means some more months for the worlds best airport, which is Berlin Tegel (TXL), where you only need 15 minutes by cab from the city center, and where you only have 15 meters from the taxi drop to your individual check in, and than another 15 meters to your individual gate. The longer travellers can use this really user-friendly, fantastic architectural layout, the better!
Programs: KLM Flying Blue Platinum for Life.. oh and some other shiny bits of plastic ...
I may then be able to get one more flight into my beloved TXL before its doors finally close... I wonder what the fall out of not having it open in time will be? especially with the new routes that were proposed to start from BER ?

But for the passengers it is very, very good news indeed: using the brillant, user-friendly TXL-layout for a longer time; taxi journeys 20 euro to TXL instead of 45 euro to BER; travel time from Berlin city to TXL 15 min instead of 45 min to BER etc. pp.!
