Review: Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER)

While I usually review flights, airport lounges, and hotels, in this case I’ll be reviewing an airport (it’s the first airport-specific review I’ve done since the new Istanbul Airport). We’re not just talking about any airport, but rather about the infamous Berlin Brandenburg Airport, which opened on October 31, 2020.

Berlin Brandenburg Airport is kind of in a league of its own when it comes to disastrous airport construction projects:

Construction on the airport started back in 2006
The airport was initially supposed to open in March 2011, but ended up opening in October 2020, so it was nearly 10 years behind schedule
The airport was supposed to cost €2.83 billion, but has cost around €7 billion in the end
