Tempelhof closed Tegel bursting at the seams. Passengers in Tegel can experience this situation during the peak daily demo on the Kurfurstendamm. Long queues in front of the check-in counters, air traffic delays following traffic jams during the transport to the airport, traffic jams before the security checks and the resulting are now the rule. Passengers, pilots, air traffic controllers and the Lufthansa now also complain about adverse effects. According to Peter Rzepka, Berlin CDU Bundestag delegate the security situation at the airport has deteriorated significantly Tegel in the past few years. 2007/2008 part 16 security-related incidents have occurred, the Federal Ministry of transport. Which are more than in the years 2003 to 2006 before. In addition to the worsening security situation, the residents of the airport have to live Tegels now also with considerably more air traffic.
Particularly grotesque: A lot of the business plane before landing country worked in Tempelhof now in Tegel immediately after disembarking the passengers to restart. Your destination: The airport Schonefeld. Since there are no pitches on the airport Tegel, they are forced to switch to pitches in Schonefeld. This insanity has method and to start the engines for the return or onward flight again in Schonefeld, land back in Tegel, here re-taking their passengers and continue the flight. These are effects of airport policy of Red/Red Senate under the Governing Mayor Klaus Wowereit. A normal-minded citizens and taxpayers can and must not understand this.
Access to the airport Tegel is connected with obstacles: the departure and is a two-lane road, partly as a tunnel, usually with congestion on the right track by waiting taxis. This would block life-saving access of the necessary emergency services in a possible crash on the airport Tegel. A spokesman for Lufthansa outraged by two other construction sites. Occasion of anger: the entrance to the airport Tegel is severely impacted by two major construction sites.
