Berlin-Schönefeld Airport (SXF) Is Soon to Become the Berlin Brandenburg Airport:
Berlin-Schönefeld Airport (SXF) is one of the two Berlin international airports, the other being Tegel. Located in the town of Schönefeld, the airport is approximately 24kms (15 miles) south-east of the centre of Berlin.
Berlin Brandenburg Airport
Schönefeld Airport is currently the smaller of the two Berlin airports, but not for long. When expansion work at the airport is completed in June 2012, Schoenefeld Airport will become the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), the main airport for Berlin, at which time Tegel will be shut down.
There are currently three terminals at Schönefeld (see map). Schönefeld is the hub for Easyjet and Germanwings. The flights at Schonefeld Airport mostly connect to European holiday destinations.
