Berlin Tempelhof Airport was an airport in Berlin, Germany, situated in the south-central borough of Tempelhof-Schöneberg. The airport ceased operating 2008 in the process to ultimately utilize Schönefeld as the sole commercial airport for Berlin.
Designated by the Ministry of Transport on 8 October 1923, Tempelhof became the world’s first airport with an underground railway station in 1927, now called Platz der Luftbrücke after the Berlin Airlift. While occasionally cited as the world’s oldest still-operating commercial airport, the title was disputed by several other airports, and has in any case been moot since its closure.
This historic Berlin airport served as both the departure (Amsterdam) and arrival (Berlin) airports in the film the Bource Supremacy.
