In reports out of Frankfurt, speculation is starting to build around yet another delay in the opening of Berlin’s new Brandenburg Airport.

According to an article published on, Stakeholders in the facility are suggesting that the March 17, 2013 opening date is in jeopardy. Previously, the Airport was set to open in October 2011 but was postponed only a few weeks before the opening date due to issues with the Fire Suppression System.

A meeting of the Supervisory Board is scheduled to take place on Thursday, but according to the Reuters article, no new dates are expected to be announced. If there is anything substantial that comes of the meeting, I’ll post a follow up story.

Brandeburg Airport is due to replace Berlin’s Tegel and Schoenefeld airports once it is finally open.
