The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine at a Wednesday meeting approved a concept for development of the Boryspil international airport until 2045, with investment of UR 3.4 billion and the increase in passenger flow to 53.9 million passengers a year (today 12 million passengers a year).
As noted in the airport’s development concept, which Interfax-Ukraine has, the airport should provide services in 2019 to 14.4 million passengers, in 2030 to 27.7 million passengers, in 2040 to 44.3 million passengers and in 2045 to about 53.9 million passengers.
It also planned that additional land parcels of about 600 hectares will be allocated for the development of airport infrastructure at the expense of land owned or used by individuals or legal entities.
For the delivery of cargoes, the construction of a separate road to the industrial and technical zone on the south side of the airport and the possibility of building an underground railway to the airport’s central terminal are envisaged.
Boryspil International Airport is the main airport of Ukraine, occupying a total area of about 1,000 ha. The airport has two runways: one with a length of 4,000 meters and a width of 60 meters, and the second with a length of 3,500 meters and a width of 63 meters. Four passenger terminals, postal and cargo handling complexes are located on the territory of the airport.
