In the past twelve months, significantly more passengers have taken off or landed at the capital's airport Berlin-Brandenburg than in the pandemic year 2021.
Around 19.75 million passengers have been counted at BER since January, as the airport company reported to the German Press Agency. For comparison: In the previous year there were 9.95 million, in the pre-Corona year 2019 more than 35.6 million passengers.
According to airport boss Aletta von Massenbach, the year 2022 went “overall well” for BER. "Thanks to close cooperation and intensive preparation, especially during peak travel times, the departure and arrival processes have largely become a reality." We have gotten better and better at offering passengers a reliable service. The busiest month was October, when 2.1 million people flew from or landed at BER.
