At the beginning of May 2012, it was announced that the new Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport would not now open at the beginning of June 2012 as scheduled but only in Spring 2013. According to media reports, the airport will cost around EUR 2.8 billion to build.
Is the European Union co-funding Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport’s construction? If so, which specific funds are being used for co-financing the airport and what funds have already been spent on this construction project?
Will the delays in the airport’s opening impact on the assistance provided by the European Union?
Will the EU be involved in shouldering any additional costs that may arise as a result of the delay in opening?
