ACCESS BY AIR   Since April 2007, the Schoenefeld Airport is being
                developed        into   Airport   Berlin   Brandenburg
                International (BBI), the new airport for the German
                capital.
                The Berlin-Brandenburg region currently has two

                will cater for around 20 million passengers; all air traffic
                for the Berlin- Brandenburg region will then be
                concentrated on the capital airport BBI. The
                downtown airport in Tegel will then be closed as well.
                With BBI, the capital city region will offer business
                travellers, tourists and companies a high-tech airport
                with great connections, international flights, direct
                motorway access and an ICE train station directly
                underneath the main terminal. The Airport Express will
                take 17 minutes for the 20-kilometer long journey to
                downtown Berlin.                                          23
