Major airlines will continue to serve western Berlin's Tegel Airport (TXL) after a first stop at a major European hub (such as Frankfurt or London) until some time in 2012, when eastern Berlin's Schönefeld Airport, about 24 km (15 mi) outside the center, will have been expanded into BBI "Willy Brandt"—the international airport of the capital region. Currently, Schönefeld is mostly used by charter and low-budget airlines. Massive Tempelhof Airport, an example of fascist architecture, is closed and has been transformed into a public park and event space. The two working Berlin airports share a central phone number.
