The significance of the Berlin Airlift was that it showed the Soviet Union that the western Allies would not abandon the citizens of West Berlin and were prepared to go to ext…raordinary lengths to maintain their independence. With the Berlin Blockade in place, the Soviets had expected the Western allies to abandon the city but underestimated the Britain and America's determination to supply their troops and the civilian population of Berlin. After the airlift began the Soviets claimed it would never work and the subsequent success of the Airlift was a great humiliation for them. For more information, check out the related question below.

No. The Soviets instituted the Berlin blockade, so the allies initiated the Berlin airlift to get supplies to civilians inside the blockaded city.
Happened during 1948 when the Russians blocked access to Berlin.
During the Berlin Airlift (June 26th 1948 - May 12, 1949) a total of 689 aircraft were used, 441 American, 147 RAF and 101 British civil aircraft
The Berlin Blockade escalated the Cold War by showing that the Soviet Union did not want Germany to be a independent, unified country. Because West Berliners were cut off from… the rest of the capitalist world, they needed food to be flown in by Allied planes. It is also significant because of the "candy bombers" (Germans who were children back then still remember pilots dropping sweets during their supply runs).

In Cold War
Approximately 1.5 million tonnes of supplies over the 10 months were delivered to Berlin. In addition, on average 4000 tonnes of provisions were flown in each day.
They couldn't have, because no runways in Berlin were long enough.
When Germany was split, Berlin became landlocked. The only way in or out was by air. So everything they needed had to be flown in.
