Opening of New Berlin Airport Delayed Again

Running way over budget and years late

|

Germany's transport minister says he can't rule out a further delay in opening Berlin's new airport given continuing technical problems with the fire safety system.

The capital airport is one of the nation's major infrastructure projects but has turned into a big embarrassment for city officials because costs have more than doubled to €4.4 billion ($5.8 billion) and the project is years behind schedule.
