Among the people who were present on board the aircraft should be mentioned Johan Lundgren, managing director of easyJet and Carsten Spohr, CEO of Lufthansa.
Among other things, prominent personalities in the field of air transport in Germany took part in the inauguration, such as Andreas Scheuer, Federal Minister for Transport and Digital Infrastructure, and Rainer Bretschneider, head of the board who supervises the airport company. As has been made known by the local media, this airport extends over a total area of almost 1500 hectares, the equivalent of about 2,000 football fields. In addition to the aforementioned Terminal 1 there is another one (number 5 to be precise) which corresponds to the exact point where another airport no longer operational was located, that of Schönefeld.
