16-May-2012 1:07 PM

Germany's Berlin Brandenburg International Airport's opening could reportedly not occur in 2012, with reports indicating a potential spring 2013 opening, according to reports in Die Bild. The airport's interim solutions for certain fire security measures, such as sprinkler system and doors, has reportedly been rejected. Previous reports in the German media had suggested an Oct-2012 opening, to coincide with the commencement of the winter 2012/2013 schedule. Meanwhile, the Berlin Senate has requested precise information from the airport on why the opening was delayed from its scheduled 03-Jun-2012 opening date, according to dpa-AFX reports.
