After 42 years of civil aviation and history, Berlin-Tegel will be closing its doors on June 2, 2012. A chapter in aviation history will come to a close as the airport closes its doors.
On the second of June, airberlin flight AB1000 will be the last to depart from Berlin’s Tegal airport. After push-back around 10:50pm, it’ll be the last to leave the terminal. Once wheels up, the Boeing 737-800 will be the last commercial aircraft to take to the skies. Flight AB1000 will make a 50 minute sight-seeing flight over the city.
The aircraft will make one final pass over Tegal Airport and the lights on the field will be turned off, as a symbolic gesture. airberlin flight AB1000 will land at Schönefeld Airport, being one of the last commercial aircraft to land here.
As the doors of history close, a new door will open. On June 3, 2012, Berlin’s new Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport will open for business.
