Published: May 16, 2012
Air Berlin (AB) said it wants to extend the delayed opening of Berlin Brandenburg International (BER) until the start of the winter schedule by the end of October.
“To do it well [the delayed opening] this has to take some time. When the summer travel time is over, all airlines change from summer to winter schedule,” CEO Hartmut Mehdorn said Friday during the opening ceremony of its new 3X-weekly Berlin Tegel–Los Angeles, Calif. service.
By next week, airport officials plan to announce the new opening date. So far, it has said the opening will occur in the second half of August ( ATW Daily News, May 9 ).
