The supervisory board of Berlin Brandenburg Airport Holding (BBF), has confirmed a plan to develop Schonefeld Airport, to become the new Berlin hub by 2007. The BBF shareholders - the German Federal Government and the local governments of Berlin and Brandenburg - had already decided on Schonefeld in preference to a new site at Sperenberg in Brandenburg (Flight International, 12-18 June). Once developed, the airport will absorb traffic now flying to Tegel and Tempelhof, which will both close.
