Partial Berlin Brandenburg opening in 2013?

Part-opening could take place this coming October

Following multiple severe delays and technical problems, Hartmud Mehrdorn, chief executive of the long-awaited airport due to serve the German capital Berlin, has suggested that a partial opening could take place this year.
“The airport could be opening this year,” the Brandenburg airport chief told the German newspaper Bild, adding that October was a possible date to unveil the northern “low-cost” part of the airport. He said that British carrier easyJet could be the first airline to move in.
Mehrdorn’s colleagues elaborated on his comments.
“We are speeding up the process,” Brandenburg airport spokesperson Ralf Kunkel said. “Our goal is a speedy and secure opening of the new airport. We will introduce more in autumn.”
