Berdiansk airport being prepared for restoration – mayor

Berdiansk Airport can be restored as part of the construction of a naval base, Berdiansk Mayor Valeriy Baranov has said.

He said this during a press conference "Berdiansk - News of Summer Tourist Season 2021" on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the airport stopped working. Now our airport is not operational, but we are working on its restoration. I met with the infrastructure minister, and we are working with the Ministry of Defense. We have a naval base under construction and there are plans for an airport and a runway,” the mayor said.

Rebuilding the airport is not a project of this year. Baranov notes that he negotiated with Chinese and Turkish investors and understands the importance of this facility, including from the point of view of investment and tourism attractiveness.

In 2018, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine considered options for Berdiansk Airport being able to seasonally serve domestic flights. Then it was said that this airport could become an alternative to Mariupol Airport.
