The construction of a hotel at Boryspil International Airport will begin this spring, and a total of four hotels can be built at the airport, director general of the airport Pavlo Riabikin has said in an interview with the Interfax-Ukraine news agency.
“We have issued technical conditions for connecting to networks for two objects that are positioned as hotels. Private investors are building them. Two more companies are interested. Therefore, we consider four potential hotels. Construction work at one of them will start this spring,” he said.
According to the airport’s director, if construction companies successfully implement their plans, about 200 rooms could appear at the airport, which will allow to cover the basic demand.
Riabikin also noted that he had not heard “any well-known names from the point of view of hotel business operators,” but he connects this with the fact that the operators themselves do not build housing but manage.
