BERLIN (AP) — Berlin bid farewell Sunday to the German capital’s central Tegel airport, beloved by some and reviled by others, because it shifts all air site visitors to a brand new hub on the outskirts of the town.

On Saturday, airways moved their final planes stationed at Tegel to the brand new Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt, which lastly opened on the finish of October 9 years late and much above its authentic price range.

The ultimate scheduled flight took off Sunday afternoon from Tegel, an Air France jet to Paris, a tribute to the primary business flight from the airport flown by the airline 60 years in the past.

In the course of the Chilly Warfare when Berlin was divided into French, American, British and Soviet sectors, every had its personal airport.

The oldest, the American sector’s Tempelhof Airport, was closed in 2008 and its predominant space is now parkland. Britain’s Gatow airport was shuttered in 1994, and the Soviet Schoenefeld Airport, situated within the surrounding state of Brandenburg in what was communist East Germany, was expanded into the brand new so-called BER.
