Berlin Tegel Airport
Jet Aviation has extended its facilities at Berlin Tegel International Airport to include a new customer lounge and crew briefing offices at Tegel’s general aviation center. The expansion is in response to customer demand for full ground-handling services at Tegel, it said. The company opened its Berlin FBO in February to provide FBO services at Schönefeld and Tegel International Airports. The new customer lounge and crew briefing offices at Tegel are in addition to Jet Aviation’s existing crew and passenger lounge and operations office at Schönefeld.

Jet Aviation has opened an FBO in Berlin to provide handling at the city’s Schönefeld and Tegel International Airports. The new facility at Schönefeld includes an operations office, a crew lounge and a VIP passenger lounge. “As a major international hub and a common point of entry to central Europe, Berlin is a key location for our customers,” said Frank Kusserow, Jet Aviation’s director of FBO services in Germany. “Many of our customers regularly fly between Berlin, Dusseldorf and our other worldwide FBOs, and they can now benefit from having the same handling provider.”
Signature Flight Support's operation in Munich has made agreements with other FBOs to provide support to operators at 13 other German airports.

Berlin’s historic Tempelhof Airport finally lost its long battle against closure on October 30 when all operations at the downtown facility ceased. Quite apart from the nostalgic blow of seeing the venue for the epic Berlin Air Lift of 1948-49 reduced to a commercial property development, the German capital has lost its most convenient gateway for business aircraft.
ExecuJet Europe last week opened its redesigned and enlarged FBO at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport ,which will serve the influx of business aviation traffic that will flock to Schönefeld following the closure today of the German capital’s downtown Tempelhof Airport.
The citizens of Berlin showed little interest on Sunday in keeping historic Tempelhof Airport open. Supporters of the German downtown airport took advantage of rarely used local legislation to force a public referendum and obtained the organization of a popular vote by city authorities. While the result is valid only as a recommendation, a strong show of support could have influenced authorities to spare the airport.
