Question for written answer  E-006588/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg (Verts/ALE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Stage reached in the State aid procedure for Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER)

On 27 November 2020, the head of Berlin-Brandenburg Airport, Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, announced(1) that in 2021 the airport and/or the company which operates it, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB), will receive an additional EUR 660 million in the form of a loan from its partners. Half that sum will already be made available before the end of 2020(2).

1. Have the German federal authorities, the Berlin regional authorities and/or the Brandenburg regional authorities notified to the Commission measures involving State aid to Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB)? What steps has the Commission taken to assess whether these measures are consistent with EU State aid rules? If so, what was the outcome of that assessment?

2. When and with what results were loans, subsidies or other forms of support granted by the federal authorities and the regional authorities in Berlin and Brandenburg to Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB) for 2020 and 2021 notified to the Commission, and what stage has been reached in the relevant notification procedures which are still ongoing?

3. What steps is the Commission taking to ensure that Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB) is compensated only for the financial shortfall it has incurred (loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic)?
