The Infrastructure Ministry of Ukraine plans to create 50 airports in Ukraine, five of which will be international aviation hubs, and 20 more will service international flights.
“In the aviation industry, we see the creation of 50 airports throughout Ukraine. We are not talking about 50 Boryspil airports. We talk at least about five international hubs, at least 20 airports that will provide international communication, as well as about 20 that will be service flights to the regions,” Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan said at the presentation of the Ukrainian transport strategy until 2030 on Thursday evening.
According to him, the average time, which should take to reach an airport from anywhere in the country, should be reduced to one hour.
As for the development of the aviation industry, it is planned to open 350 destinations for flights from all airports in Ukraine.
Earlier, Omelyan announced the creation of two new airlines in Ukraine.
