As of today, the German state railway operator Deutsche Bahn has opened two stations at Berlin-Brandenburg Willy Brandt International Airport (BER), which is slated for commissioning on 31 October. This was reported in a press release from the concern.

Two railway stations have been specially built for the new capital’s air harbor: Wasmansdorf railway station and an underground barrier-free station “Airport BER – Terminals 1-2”, located directly under the complex. The existing Berlin-Schoenefeld Airport will be integrated into the new major airport as a fifth terminal and its station will be renamed “Airport BER – Terminal 5”.

A total of 6 tracks have been laid under the airport. The station between the old Schönefeld train station and the new train station is connected to the city’s S-Bahn network, for which an 8.6 km track has been built. Another 18.5 km of track was laid to organize communication with the long-haul railway network. The total investment in the construction of stations and infrastructure amounted to 675 million euros.

Urban transportation started on October 26. From October 29, S-Bahn trains will run at 10-minute intervals. After the airport opens on October 31, 3 more regional services and a special express (FEX) will stop at the underground station 4 times per hour. Train stations and the Deutsche Bahn tourist center will be open to visitors daily from 7 am to 10 pm.

As Gudok.ru reported, Deutsche Bahn is creatingEurope’s largest mobile Wi-Fi network. About 44 million euros are being invested in the expansion of the wireless LAN at the railway stations.
