Although it is not a major international aviation hub, Berlin's history has blessed it with three airports:
Tegel and Tempelhof are located within the former West Berlin, while Schönefeld was East Berlin's international airport. The city is planning to consolidate all air traffic at Schönefeld, which is being rebuilt as Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport (BBI). Tempelhof, the smallest of the three airports, and in the middle of a residential zone, was finally closed on October 2008. Tegel, which also lies well within the Berlin city limits, will be closed when the new airport is completed - the plans say in 2011, but big projects are inevitably subject to delays, and Berliners are putting their money on 2013 or 2014.
