State-owned enterprise (SOE) Boryspil International Airport (Kyiv region) plans to repay UAH 3.6 billion of debt under a state-secured loan of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) received 10 years ago to build Terminal D in accordance with the issue terms.
“It remains for us to pay the Japanese bank UAH 3.6 billion at the current hryvnia exchange rate, which was attracted to build Terminal D. We paid about 20%,” Deputy Director General for Economics and Finance of the Boryspil airport Kyrylo Zvonarev said at a press conference at the airport on Thursday.
According to him, the total amount of the loan at the current exchange rate is almost UAH 5 billion and approximately UAH 1.4 billion was paid. He also said that according to the payment plan, the airport will repay the loan before 2032.
“Twice a year we have to pay approximately UAH 150 million,” the deputy director said.
At the same time, Zvonarev expressed concern that setting a rate of transfer to the national budget of the company’s net profit at 90% could put at risk the repayment of the said loan.
