Climate change activists gathered for demonstrations at the opening of the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) in Schönefeld on Saturday, October 31, in protest against aviation-related environmental pollution. Minor delays to access the airport was reported. There were no reports of violence or arrests during the demonstrations. The long-delayed opening of the airport comes ten years after its intended opening.
Disruption to overland travel into and out of BER is possible in the coming hours following the evacuation.
Individuals due to fly out of BER in the immediate term are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate disruptions to overland travel, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
