Berlin is served by two commercial airports. Tegel Airport (TXL) the largest (inside Berlin), and Schönefeld Airport (SXF) outside of Berlin. They both handled around 21 million passengers in 2007. Together they serve 144 destinations – 124 of them in Europe. Tegel Airport is scheduled to close in 2012 and Schoenefeld Airport will be renamed Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport in 2011 and will handle all commercial flights to and from Berlin.
The third, Tempelhof Airport, handled short distance and commuter flights. It was closed against fierce opposition by a lot of Berliners at the end of October 2008.
