During the Berlin Airlift in 1948, the longest runway in Europe (2,400 m) was built at Tegel. Modern facilities were built in the 1970s, and Tegel began to replace Tempelhof International Airport as the main airport of West Berlin. Tempelhof, surrounded by urban development, was too noisy and its runways were too short for modern jumbo jets. During the Cold War, because of the special status of West Berlin, air traffic was restricted to Allied airlines (particularly Air France, Pan American World Airways and British Airways). According to a decade-old plan to replace the three airports currently serving Berlin with one, Berlin-Schönefeld International Airport will be expanded and become Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport (BBI). Tegel will then be closed about six months after operations begin at BBI (planned for 2007) and all flights will move to the newly expanded and renamed Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport.
