Airport technology by Schmidt: Because safety and efficiency belong together

Schmidt TJS, Berlin Airport

Handover of additional jet sweepers to the Berlin airport company


Tried and tested technology prevails – After FBB, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, had already had the opportunity to verify first-hand the premium quality of the Schmidt jet sweepers in September of last year, another order was received from Germany’s capital city. Four additional Schmidt TJS jet sweepers were delivered to the airport company Berlin Brandenburg GmbH on 22 October 2014 as part of a ceremonial handover.


Berlin is the third-largest airport location in Germany, behind Frankfurt am Main and Munich. The passenger volume at the two airports Schönefeld and Tegel amounted to more than 26 million passengers in 2013. These people also count on reaching their respective destinations safely and on time during the winter months. Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH is optimally equipped for the cold season; the fleet of winter service vehicles is ready.

However, some equipment and vehicles at the airport needed timely replacement. In search of equipment that guarantees swift and reliable snow removal on runways, the airport opted for the tried and tested jet sweepers by the system provider Schmidt. The innovative three-stage operating principle of clearing, sweeping and blowing in a single operation makes the Schmidt jet sweepers a safe and highly efficient technology that should not be missing at any airport. The exceptionally high quality of vehicles and components also allows trouble-free uninterrupted operation – for example, during prolonged heavy snowfalls.

Schmidt has been actively engaged in the field of innovative winter service equipment for more than 90 years and therefore exhibits both extensive and multifaceted expertise, guaranteeing maximum safety and efficiency to airport operators all over the world, in any weather and round the clock. As a system provider, Aebi Schmidt endeavours to offer all customers optimum solutions tailored to the respective conditions in any situation. Solutions that ensure smooth winter operations at all airports.

Now the winter can come – Berlin’s airports are perfectly prepared for the approaching winter months.
