About Berlin Tempelhof Airport
Berlin Tempelhof Airport was a major airport in Berlin that closed in 2008. In its last few years of operations, the airport facilitated commuter flights that flew domestically within Germany and to its neighbouring countries. However, the airport also had the capability to handle long-haul flights from airlines using wide body aircraft and historically facilitated transatlantic flights from Germany to the US.
In its time, the airport was a hub for a variety of airlines, many of which no longer fly. These include airlines such as Deutsche Luft Hansa, Tempelhof Airways and Hamburg Airlines.
For years, Tempelhof was the main airport and gateway into Berlin. However, this changed when Berlin Tegel Airport was built and took on most international traffic into the city.
With its history dating back to the early 1900s, at the time that it closed, Berlin Tempelhof laid a claim to being the oldest commercial airport in the world. However, this was never officially confirmed.
Although the airport closed, the building was hasn't been demolished and still stands but it's in very poor condition.
