Berlin Airports are looking again with optimism into 2018, following a difficult year 2017 marked by the collapse of airberlin, which was the largest carrier in the German capital. The suspension o f ma n y rou t e s translated into a decline in passenger traffic of -17.5% in December and -11.2% in January. Airport management predicts however that flight capacities will be back to normal this summer. Easyjet will fly to 95 destinations this summer including 42 from Tegel while Eurowings will serve a dozen destinations. Ryanair also just announced it is opening its first route from Berlin Tegel to Mallorca while Scoot will link Berlin to Singapore this autumn. Another positive move is the official confirmation by Berlin Airports authorities of the opening date of the new Berlin Brandenburg International in October 2020. Plans have also been approved to boost capacity of the future airport from 27 million to 48 million passengers a year by 2030.
