Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport opened on 31 October 2020 and it is named after former West Berlin mayor and West German chancellor Willy Brandt. It is close to the site of the previous Schönefeld Airport, and replaced that as well as Tegel and Tempelhof airports to become the commercial airport serving Berlin and the surrounding State of Brandenburg.
After German reunification in 1990, Berlin City Council decided that a single, larger airport would be more efficient for the German capital, rather than three smaller ones. Originally planned to open in 2011, Berlin Brandenburg was a long-delayed project, with 15 years of planning and 14 years of construction leading up to its eventual opening. The delays were due to a number of factors, including a series of changes in ownership and financing.
Berlin Brandenburg Airport is located 18 kilometres (11 miles) south-east of Berlin's city centre. The airport is linked by Autobahn to the city centre with a driving time of around 20 minutes.
