The new airport, which was due to open in 2011 and through successive delays will not open until 2014 at the earliest, has been plagued by construction complications and skyrocketing costs. Opposition leaders are calling for the resignation of Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit, who until recently chaired the Governing Board, though he has thus far refused to give up his post as mayor.
