Hundreds of forwarded suitcases are also piled up at the capital’s BER airport, which have to be conveyed to their owners.
“At the moment, around 300 suitcases are reaching the airport every day, which the airlines are forwarding to their customers,” said a spokeswoman at the request of the German Press Agency. That is significantly more than usual.
According to its own statements, the ground service provider Aeroground alone takes care of the forwarding of around 1000 pieces of luggage stored there at BER on behalf of the airlines.
According to the airport, an additional area had to be made available where the suitcases could be temporarily stored. A large part comes from hubs such as Munich or Frankfurt. “It’s a current problem.”
