Capital Airport – Problem due to aircraft noise at BER – Economy

The Ministry of Transport wants to get to the bottom of the anger over the noise of planes at the new BER airport. There were additional overflights for residents of some communities for weeks. The main reason is that the airline Easyjet chose a different route for technical reasons. When taking off in an easterly direction, pilots should make a right turn immediately after taking off from the south runway at Willy Brandt Airport. Since this month, Easyjet uses an alternative via Zeuthen, Schulzendorf and Eichwalde. The airline claims that the steep curve cannot be done due to the heavy load on the aircraft. Critics are growing in affected communities. This is the first major conflict on the air routes since the opening of the airport.
