berlin brandenburg airportBerlin’s Brandenburg Airport (BER) would require some 750 million euros for its completion by October 2020, as per the latest reports.

 

 

 

According to the report, senior executives of the Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB) Corporation gave the sum to the supervisory board at the end of December.

 

 

 

The monthly cost of the development of the airport and the lost revenue almost mounts up to 25 million euros ($30 million) which is why the fresh funding amount has gone up to 750 million Euros ($897 million).

 

 

 

According to another report, the lack in the adequate fund might cause a halt in the construction.

 

 

 

Initially set up open in 2012, the Brandenburg airport has seen disastrous failure in its plan and has become a running joke for the Berliners and also tarnishing Germany’s reputation for engineering prowess and punctuality.

 

 

 

The project had created turbulences between the capital city Berlin, its neighboring state of Brandenburg and the federal government along with the linked architectural and engineering firms.

 

 

 

The construction began in 2006 however was scraped following some serious flaws in fire safety and smoke extraction systems. There was also problem with the roof of the sprawling main terminal building. The financial and political black hole has sucked up 6.5 billion Euros so far – instead of the originally forecast 2 billion Euros. But with every unopened month, the airport cost goes up by 10 to 13 million Euros.
