The construction site of the new Willy Brandt Berlin Brandenburg International Airport stands on June 27, 2012 near Berlin, Germany. Originally scheduled to open in early June of this year, completion of the airport has been delayed at least until March, 2013, and costs are to rise by at least EUR 1 billion. The airport is meant to replace the city's current Tegel and Schoenefeld aiports, though experts are predicting that the new airport will already be too small by time it opens to manage the projected capacity and that hence Tegel Airport will have to remain in operation for some time.
