Boryspil International Airport ranked fourteenth in the list of the largest airports in Europe in terms of the passenger flow.

Chairman of the Boryspil Airport Supervisory Board Volodymyr Zhmak said this, referring to the ACI (Airport Council International) Europe report, the airport’s press service reports.

“According to the ACI Europe Report, which includes 341 largest European airports, we outran a number of high-capacity airfields. In particular, those are the airports of Vienna, Rome, Lisbon, Athens, Munich, Barcelona, Brussels, Stockholm, Zurich, Milan and Warsaw. The report published in June includes the data regarding the passenger flow. During the 4 months of 2021, Boryspil Airport ranked up to the 14th place in Europe and first time ever reaches top 15,” said Zhmak.

He also noted that as of the May 2021, Boryspil Airport has already resumed 60% of flights comparing to the results of 2019.

“In addition, as of the May 2021, Eurocontrol member countries restored their performance by only 39% comparing to the results of 2019. Therefore, Boryspil Airport restoration rate is by 1.5 times faster. Currently we are waiting for the full scale restoration of air connection with EU countries, providing even more active growth in passenger flow,” said Zhmak.

As reported by Ukrinform, in January-May 2021, Boryspil Airport serviced 2,458,270 passengers, including 1,253,071 passengers carried by regular flights and 1,205,199 passengers carried by charter flights.
