Berlin’s new Brandenburg Airport will not open until spring of next year at the earliest.

According to German newspaper Bild, the airport will probably not open until March of next year to coincide with the time that Airlines launch their summer timetables.

Last week Berlin authorities called off the opening of the airport on June 3 after inspectors would not certify the airport’s ability to handle a fire.

Airlines, including Lufthansa and airberlin among others face losses and logistical challenges as they have to revamp their timetables that were originally set to be effective on June 2.

Once open, Berlin Brandenburg will be Germany’s 3rd largest airport, behind Frankfurt and Munich.
