When Germany was two, and Communism ruled the East, people could not use Tempelhof, in the West. The East German government made their own field called Schönefeld. All East airlines like Aeroflot, some Chinese airlines, and hometown Interflug used Schönefeld. The West had Tempelhof, then a newer larger airport was built, called Tegel. Skip to today! Communism is all but extinct, and travellers have the choice of three Berlin airports. Each airport specializes in it's own area. Schönefeld, as it was once in the East, specializes in Eastern flights. Most Eastern airlines flying to Berlin, fly to Schönefeld. Most scheduled, major, airlines fly to Tegel, and most general aviation, and some regional inner-Deutschland flights fly out of Tempelhof.
