Chief of new Berlin airport sacked


Chaos continues as city’s new airport struggles to open
Berlin’s new airport, BER, has been crippled by technical problems and spiralling costs. Now the head of the airport has been sacked after just two years in the job.
The project is already more than five years behind schedule and billions of euros over-budget, damaging Germany’s international reputation for technical efficiency. Its budget has gone from €2bn to €5.4bn – and could possibly rise to €6.5bn. It will now not launch before next year.
Airlines warned that sacking Karsten Mühlenfeld would lead to further delays. But German media report he will be replaced by Engelbert Lütke-Daldrup, a Berlin city planner. He will be the fourth BER boss since work on the project began in 2006.
