Costs for Berlin's new international airport have spiralled out of control. Due to a faulty fire safety system, it's still uncertain when the airport will open.
Berlin's beleaguered new airport, already a stain on Germany's reputation for precision and efficiency, has suffered another setback. A contractor that was repairing a faulty fire safety system has filed for bankruptcy.
It has been discovered that 600 fire-resistant walls were improperly installed at the folly-plagued BER airport. Last week, it was found that ceiling panels were dangerously fitted with ventilators that were too heavy.
The chief executive of Berlin's new BER airport, Hartmut Mehdorn, has announced his resignation next year. The step comes after differences with the company board over the opening of the long-delayed airport.
