The governor of Brandenburg state, Matthias Platzeck speaks at a press conference at Schoenefeld airport Berlin Wednesday Jan. 16, 2013. The chief executive of Berlin's airports Rainer Schwarz has been fired following a decision to delay yet again the opening of the German capital's new airport - a fiasco that has deeply embarrassed local officials. The chairman of the airport operator's supervisory board, Brandenburg state governor Matthias Platzeck, said after directors met Wednesday that CEO Rainer Schwarz had left the company. Officials said last week they wouldn't be able to open the new airport, just outside Berlin, on Oct. 27 - the fourth delay as builders struggle with technical problems.
