Kyiv Sikorsky International Airport (Zhuliany) in 2019 plans to boost passenger traffic by 25-30% compared with the current year, when it plans to serve 2.6 million people. “We plan passenger traffic will grow by about 25-30% next year from the current level,” Chairman of the airport’s Board of Directors Denys Kostrzhevsky said at a conference at the airport. The previously announced forecast for 2018 set at 2.8 million passengers was reduced because flydubai (the UAE) had switched flights to another airport while the density of the schedule of Estonia’s Nordica had decreased.
As reported, Kyiv Sikorsky International Airport plans to complete the reconstruction and expansion of its main Terminal A from 14,000 to 23,500 square meters by until May 2019. The project is estimated at UAH 630 million.
Kyiv Sikorsky International Airport is located in the business center of the capital, seven km from the city center. It is the second largest airport in Ukraine in terms of the number of flights and passenger traffic.
The airport has three terminals with a total area being 21,000 square meters. The airport’s runway is able to handle B-737 and A-320 aircraft.
In the nine months of 2018, the airport serviced 2.165 million passengers, which was 57.3% up on January-September 2017. In September 2018 alone, passenger traffic grew by 30.6%, to 307,500 people.
