Deutsche Bahn Sees EU20 Million Airport Delay Costs, Welt Says
Deutsche Bahn AG estimates that the delayed opening of the new airport in Berlin will cost the German train operator at least 20 million euros ($25.4 million) in lost sales and maintenance and staffing costs, Die Welt reported in a preview of an article that will be published tomorrow, without saying where it got the information.
Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport, built at a cost of 2.5 billion euros, won’t go into service until March 17 next year following the completion of fire-safety tests that already led to the cancellation of a June 3 start, it said on May 17.
