Last commercial flight leaves Tegel for Paris in tribute to airport’s French builders

The last commercial flight left Berlin’s Tegel Airport on Sunday afternoon, with the final plane to leave destined for Paris as a tribute to the French, who built the airfield during the occupation of Germany after World War Two in purpotedly only 80 days. The AirFrance plane was paid farewell by all departments of airport employees as well as plane spotters and spectators. According to German media reports, the airport will remain on a stand-by operational level for the next six months, before the redevelopment process will begin, to turn the area into a work and living hub.
