Holidays, business trips and visits from friends and family are now possible again on a large scale and tourism in the capital region is picking up again. Up to 30,000 passengers will travel daily to and from Schönefeld and Tegel in July. The airports are, therefore, making a big contribution to the economy and tourism in the capital region.”
