With the long anticipated opening of Berlin-Brandenburg Airport, Tegel and Schönefeld Airport are no longer in operation. Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER) serves both international and domestic arrivals and departures from major world airlines and also many discount airlines such as easyJet, Ryanair and Norwegian.

Public transportation lines have been extended to the airport making it easy and inexpensive to travel between Berlin-Brandenburg and central Berlin or Potsdam.

First thing to know is that you can easily transfer between Terminal 1, 2 or 5 by means of bus or the S-Bahn Train. The S-Bahn runs about every 10 minutes and takes 8 minutes to travel between terminals.
