Fifth time lucky? After years of delay Berlin aims to new airport in by the end of 2017

The terminal of the new Berlin airport, 'Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt' is illuminated in Schoenefeld near Berlin early Friday Dec. 12, 2014. Berlin’s new airport should be open within three years - barring further unforeseen problems. German news agency dpa quoted Rainer Bretschneider, the deputy chairman of the airport’s supervisory board, saying that it will begin operating in the second half of 2017. The airport was first scheduled to be ready late 2011 but that and three other opening dates were canceled due to technical problems. Costs, meanwhile, have more than doubled to some 5.4 billion euros (US $7.1 billion). (AP Photo/dpa,Patrick Pleul) (The Associated Press)
