  • In the late 1950s, the runways at West Berlin's city centre Tempelhof Airport had become too short to accommodate the new-generation jet aircraft such as the Aérospatiale Caravelle, Boeing 707, de Havilland Comet and Douglas DC-8, without imposing payload or range restrictions.
  • Following the move to Tegel, Air France initially used Lockheed Super Constellation piston equipment on all Berlin flights.
  • The largest-ever expansion of Pan Am's scheduled internal German services occurred during summer 1984, when the airline's aircraft movements at Tegel increased by 20%.
  • The move from Tempelhof to Tegel resulted in all of Pan Am's Berlin operations being concentrated at the latter.
