Air Berlin asks Tegel for longer operating hours
Published: May 11, 2012
Air Berlin (AB), the biggest airline customer at Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL), has asked officials to reduce its night curfew as it scrambles with other German airlines to deal with the logistical dilemma caused by the delayed opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER).
AB wants TXL to adjust its night closure to midnight to 5 a.m. from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
BER, which was scheduled to open June 3, postponed its opening to late summer due to technical issues concerning fire protection installations (ATW Daily News, May 9).
