Berlin-Tegel International Airport

Berlin Tegel Airport is the primary international airport that serves Berlin, Germany’s federal capital, along with Berlin Schönefeld Airport. As a public airport, Tegel Airport is operated by Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmBH, and serves as the hub for two carriers namely Air Berlin and Germanwings. In addition, the airport is located at 52.559722 latitude and 13.287778 longitude, and has two asphalt-surfaced runways that measure between approximately 2,400 to 3,000 metres, or 8,000 to 9,900 feet in total length.

When flying in and out of Berlin Tegel Airport, the airport operates domestic, scheduled and seasonal flights to the cities of Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, and Stuttgart; and internationally, to cities within the countries of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Latvia, Malta, Serbia, Netherlands, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States, among others.


Berlin’s Tegel Airport, although smaller in comparison to other major airports, serves with a total of five terminals. Even though located within the same building, the airport terminals can be divided into Terminal A, Terminal B, Terminal C, Terminal D, and Terminal E. The primary airport building houses Terminals A and B, while Terminals C, D, and E, can be found separately since these have opened at a later date. Terminal A refers to the hexagonally shaped ring concourse with 14 jet bridges, 16 check-in counters from A00 to A15, with a parking area, taxi stands, and bus stops within the middle of the terminal. Most of the major airlines arrive and depart through Terminal A, although it does not have a transit zone, so each gate within the terminal has its very own security clearance checkpoint for arriving passengers. Also, Terminal A can handle a variety of aircraft that include wide-bodies ones such as Boeing 767 or Airbus A330. Additionally, Terminal B, or Nebel-Hall, is a converted former waiting area and has counters B20 to B39. Terminal C, on the other hand, has 26 check-in counters and gates from C38 to C51, C60 to C67, and C80 to C89, within Section C2 and C3, among others. Terminal D, has 22 check-in counters from D70 to D91, while within its lower level arrival area, is the Terminal E with its E16 to E18 gates.

Some of the airport’s top facilities include various shops, restaurants, and more, both before and after the airport’s security check. Along with these, the airport also has a good number of walking/biking airport tours, inside and outside of the airport for both children and adults.
