The new Berlin airport's operator, Berliner Flughafen, said last week that it will be impossible to meet the projected June 3 opening date. CEO Rainer Schwarz said the delay is needed because the terminal's fire protection system appears unready and cannot be guaranteed to function properly within the next three weeks. The operator plans to announce a new date this week.
