Budget airlines complain as work begins on Berlin airport

6 September 2006

A symbolic ground-breaking ceremony Tuesday marked the start of work on a huge new airport for the German capital after 14 years of planning, legal wrangling and political disputes.Transport Minister Wolfgang Tiefensee and Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit took part in the ceremony at the new site adjacent to the current ex-East German airport at Schoenefeld.

But complaints by budget airlines that the new airport ignores their needs have cast a shadow over the 2-billion-euro (2.5-billion- dollar) project, which is expected to give a boost to the economy and eventually generate around 40,000 jobs.
