Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO: "We are delighted with the increasing number of passengers at both airports and this trend continues to look positive. For the tenth time in a row, we are growing faster than the average of all German airports. It is highly likely that we will crack the 25 million mark this year. Above all, I would like to thank our employees for their great work. It is to their credit that we have been able to deal with the increase in traffic so successfully, despite the delayed opening of BER."
