Tegel: Berlin’s main airport
Tegal is the main international airport in Berlin. Its origins were in the cold war — during the Berlin airlift — when blockaded by the Soviets, the West flew supplies in to support the enclave of West Berlin. Over 200,000 flights were made in one year and Tegel was constructed to help achieve this. Today the airport consists of 5 small terminals and is a hub for most major airlines.
