Boryspil International Airport expects to receive an additional UAH 15-20 million of revenue from aviation activities due to servicing additional flights on the day of the UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv on May 26, the airport deputy director for commercial activities and strategic development, Heorhiy Zubko, has said at a press conference.
“The assets Boryspil airport intends to receive within the framework of this event are those that are directly related to aviation activity. We expect to receive at least UAH 15-20 million from that number of passengers who will come to us,” he predicts.
Zubko noted that in addition to income from aviation activities, the airport also expects to receive additional income from passenger service enterprises: cafes, duty free shops, etc., located in the airport’s territory.
As reported, Boryspil airport is expected to accept 77 flights with fans in Terminals B and D on the day of the UEFA Champions League final.
At the same time, Kyiv expects 100,000 guests for the UEFA Champions League final, but most fans will leave after the Champions League finals are finished and they will not need accommodation in the hotels of the capital.
Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko has invited football fans to Kyiv to visit the UEFA Champions League 2018 final to take place in Kyiv on May 26. A video clip where Klitschko jointly with head coach of the national team of Ukraine and UEFA Champions League final ambassador Andriy Shevchenko took part was posted by Klitschko on his Facebook page. “Friends, Kyiv is preparing for a large sports event that will host for the first time – the UEFA Champions League final. We expect that around 100,000 guests would visit our city,” Klitschko wrote.
He said that a Ukrainian creative team worked on the video clip. Funds from the Kyiv city budget were not spent on making the clip.
