Berlin THF - PRG Via BRU With SN And SkyEurope Pt2

Mon Apr 21, 2008 8:40 pm

After a nice afternoon and evening in Berlin it was time to go head back to the airport. I took a U-Bahn to the THF airport.

I got there early and had more than 3 hours to kill. Therefore I tried my luck at the check in and asked if I could check in early my bag. It was not a problem and than i could wonder around and take few shots.

Again one more shot inside the airport

About one hour before departure I went through security and directly to my gate to take some pictures.

It was very peaceful at the airport, very little activity.

Think it is Liege (EGG/LBLG)

Nice photos; Templehof looks an amazing airport!

I think the picture you titled with business flight is actually the Cirrus Air flight to Mannheim. It is also an LH codeshare flight. Cirrus Air operates the Dornier 328 on that route.

Interesting report and nice pics from THF. I have never flown there, probably I will try to book a trip before the airport will be closed.

Saab 340 from a Swedish Operator (nothing written on the a/c) therefore no idea what airline it is. The flight came from and was heading to Vaxjo, Sweden.

That's Avitrans Nordic.

Lovely photos - particularly at Tempelhof Airport. It's sad that it is going to close, but I hear the Terminal building will be preserved, which is a relief.
What did they give you to eat on board?

Great report, with some very nice THF pictures. It will be a sad loss for aviation when THF is shut down.
Also the pics of BRU are stunning.

THanks for sharing,

They only serve food for purchase, unless you bought a business flex ticket. I did not anything on such short flight, therefore no pic of the food.

Dobry den Ales!

Cool report from THF as I'm a bit jealous! I got to visit the airport while I was in Berlin, but never got to go past security and board a flight! Thanks for sharing!  yes
