Berlin Brandenburg met with fierce resistance by locals

Berlin Schonefeld Airport’s redevelopment into Berlin Brandenburg International (BBI) has met with strong resistance from Berlin residents (Press TV, 23-Jan-2011). Some 15,000 people protested the airport’s plans to develop into a major hub, as they believe south-east Berlin will be exposed to high levels of aircraft noise. BBI is scheduled to open in Jun-2012 and will replace the existing Berlin airport system, which comprises Berlin Tegel and Berlin Schonefeld.
