Berlin new airport opening postponed

Today it was announced that Berlin new airport opening planned for 3 June 2012 will be postponed due to technical reasons. Airport officials stated that the opening will take place after the summer holiday period.

Airberlin, Condor, Easyjet and TUIfly are flying this summer from Berlin to Rhodes; Airberlin, Condor and TUI were supposed to move all operations to the new airport on June 3rd but most probably will remain on their current facilities in Schönefeld (Condor) and Tegel (airberlin, Tuifly). Easyjet's route on the other hand is a new service and was planned to commence on June 23rd from the new airport meaning that it will certainly move on Easyjet's current Berlin base at Schönefeld.
