Mercedes-Benz Signs Partnership with Berlin Airport

By Paul Joseph

Travellers arriving at the new Berlin Brandenburg International airport in Germany, which opens in June, will be greeted by an array of Mercedes-Benz paraphernalia, after the luxury car-maker signed a partnership deal with the transport hub.

Mercedes will feature prominently across the new airport, including a new showroom with space for 100 cars located next door, and a ‘star tower’ topped by an eight-metre-wide Mercedes star, to be constructed on the route into the airport.

Other features of the airport in which the famous brand will maintain a presence include the 190-metre departure screen, which is expected to be one of the largest screens of its kind in the world.

Additionally, an Airport Service point adjacent to the terminal will include24-hour valet parking service exclusively for Mercedes owners – enabling them to pick up their freshly serviced and washed car upon their return.

The history of Mercedes-Benz dates back to 1886 and the creation of the Benz Patent Motorwagen, widely regarded as the first automobile.
