Berlin's current secondary airport, Schonefeld , has had its IATA code changed from SXF to BER on Sunday October 25, updating its name to BER Terminal 5.
Schonefeld will continue to serve as Terminal 5 in the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), which is due to officially open doors on October 31, following a nine-year delay. The new airport was also over €4 billion ($4.7 billion) over budget, and is regarded by many Berliners to be an «embarrassment.»
Schonefeld used to offer many low-cost flights from and to the German capital, with airlines such as Ryanair and Wizz Air, that will continue to fly from Terminal 5.
Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL), the other Berlin's airport, is set to close for good on November 8, with a last flight in schedule operated by Air France.
