Germany’s capital Berlin’s secondary international airport, is Berlin Schönefeld Airport. Near the town of Schonefeld in the state of Brandenburg, it is 18 km (11 mi) southeast of Berlin. Out of the other two airports in Berlin, this is smaller than Berlin Tegel Airport, and it also acts as a base for EasyJet and Ryanair. In 2017, its main focus was European metropolitan and leisure destinations; it expanded its customer base. That year their services were used by 12.9 million passengers that traveled through their airport.
Schönefeld Airport has four terminals. The four terminals were A, B, C, D. However, as of April 2020, their names have been changed to K, L, M, Q to avoid confusion between the names of the new Berlin-Brandenburg Airport’s terminal sections. You can find these four terminals; K, L, M, Q beside each other, although they do have separate landside areas. They are connected through a joint airside concourse. The Q terminal does not have any check-in facilities; the sole function this performs is for passengers to be able to clear security checks and be able to enter the airside boarding gates. There are a few shops. These include duty-free shops, newsstands, some fast-food restaurants, and an airline lounge.
Schönefeld Airport has many options for car parking that you can choose from depending on your convenience, as they are mostly located close by to both of SXF Airport’s terminal buildings. The Airport (SXF) car parking facilities use three diverse tariffs. These include short term, long term, and undercover airport car parking. The spaces that are nearest to the terminal zones are reserved for those who have disabilities.
There are many different multi-story car parks available for parking purposes. These are quite near to the terminal as well as well-handled and managed. APCOA Parking is in charge of all the car parks and bookings.
To get to the airport, you can use the Autobahn exit Schönefeld South (Süd) at the A113 junction if traveling from the northern direction to the airport. Coming from the south, motorists heading to the airport should leave the A117 at the Waltersdorfer Dreieck.
Rates differ considerably between the different parking facilities. If you book four weeks in advance, you get cheaper rates in all of them.
