The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has recently approved the concept for the development of Ukraine’s largest airport Boryspil until 2045 with a planned investment of more than EUR 3 billion, including funding provided by the state enterprise and attracted funds. The respective decision was adopted at the government meeting on 8 May 2019. According to Volodymyr Omelyan, Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure, the concept of development of the country’s main air gate envisages a significant increase in passenger traffic by 2045 due to the modernization and renovation of the airport infrastructure. The government is currently considering the possibility of a concession project, since the total investment in the infrastructure modernization is over EUR 3 billion.

The development concept provides for the construction of the second runway and terminal D expansion. Moreover, it is expected that in 2045, the airport will handle about 54 million passengers per year.

Due to the growing passenger traffic, in August 2018, the Boryspil airport management announced its plans to build the second runway by 2023. It should be noted that in 2018, Boryspil Airport increased passenger traffic by 19.5%, having handled 12.6 million passengers.

Boryspil International Airport (KBP) is an international airport near Boryspil, 29 km east of Kyiv. It is the busiest airport by total passenger traffic in Ukraine, accounting for 68% of the country’s passenger air traffic. The airport is the base for Ukraine’s flagship airline and its largest national carrier – Ukrainian International Airlines.

Furthermore, on 23 May 2019, the Boryspil International Airport put into operation a new multistorey car park next to Terminal D. At the moment, the new car park offers 1,019 parking spots on 4 levels, in addition to existing 12 parking lots with about 3000 parking spots.
