The Future Lies in Schoenefeld

Over the next few years, Schoenefeld Airport will expand to become Berlin Brandenburg International (BBI), the new airport for the German capital.

The capital city region will offer business travellers, tourists, and companies a high-tech airport with ideal connections, international flights, direct motorway access, and a rail station under the main terminal.

It will take only 20 minutes for the airport shuttle to travel the 20-kilometre stretch of track into the Berlin city centre. In addition to making air travel more attractive, BBI will improve life in the region. Hundreds of thousands of Berlin and Brandenburg residents will no longer have to live with aircraft noise.

Pulkovo Airport Terminal One

Pulkovo International Airport has the only runway in Russia equipped to serve the new Airbus A380. It is modern and relatively well equipped, particularly with security equipment, baggage screening machines, Rapiscan and Heimann and security cameras from France and Germany.

The terminal consists of four levels designed to separate passenger flows. The first level, handling arrivals and luggage, is divided into two sections: one for international, the other for domestic flights.

The second level also has separate sections for domestic and international flights. This is where all passengers and their luggage undergo preflight check-up. On the second level there is a pharmacy, café, post office, currency exchange office, book shops and newsstands. The third and fourth levels house recreation areas for travellers, a VIP lounge, a mother and child room, some bars (including an Irish bar called ‘One for the Road’), a restaurant, a hair salon, payphones, and Russian and CIS airline offices. There are also many wireless internet hot spots at the terminal, which is also equipped with modern computer facilities.

Pulkovo Airport Terminal Two

Pulkovo-2 handles the majority of long-haul international flights. The terminal was refurbished in the early 90s; its arrivals and departures areas were enlarged and connected by a spacious gallery, with comfortable seats for relaxation, television and a bar for passengers.

The use of automatic check-in procedures for passengers and luggage and the SDCS loading system also assist in improving the standard of service.

Pulkovo-2 has a VIP lounge and two executive lounges offering phone and fax services, newspapers and magazines in both Russian and foreign languages, a wide range of alcoholic and soft beverages, tea, coffee and snacks.

JFK Airport, New York

A new body scan system has been installed at JFK Airport, New York, which allows airport screeners to peer beneath passengers’ clothing in search of secreted weapons.

However, those passengers who are required to undergo additional screening have the choice of entering the machine, or opting for a body pat-down.

The machines – known as millimetre wave scanners – produce a 3D image of the body, showing some degree of detail.

The images are only seen by a security worker in a secluded room, who has no contact with the person being examined.

Faces are obscured automatically and the images are not archived – even if they do show the presence of a hidden weapon.

Passengers using the scanners enter them and raise their arms. The scans themselves last around 15 seconds.
