Today there are several airports in and around the German capital city, Berlin. These serve all the aerial transportation in and from the city. As in the future, the Berlin Brandenburg Airport is planned to take the place of all these airports and become the only airport in Berlin.

If you would like to visit the city by plane, I think the following guide might help you with some useful information. All of the actual airports of Berlin are operating at high standards. Choosing this means of transportation to get to Berlin is with no doubt a perfect choice. All the services are of high quality and the stuff is very well trained. You won’t have to worry about anything but your ticket, passport and your package.
