BORYSPIL AIRPORT RANKED NO. 1 IN EUROPE FOR PASSENGER GROWTH

Aviation industry association ACI Europe has ranked Kyiv’s Boryspil International Airport as the continent’s number one airport in terms of passenger growth during 2019 in the 10-25 million passenger category as Ukraine’s air travel boom continues

Kyiv’s Boryspil International Airport was Europe’s number one airport for passenger growth during 2019 among airports in the 10 to 25 million passenger category, according to the latest annual ranking produced by aviation industry association ACI Europe (Airports Council International Europe).

Boryspil, Ukraine’s busiest airport, posted 21.1% passenger growth in 2019, placing it well ahead of second-placed Milan Malpensa Airport, which saw a 16.6% year-on-year increase in passenger traffic. Boryspil’s 2019 annual total of 15.3 million passengers was a new record for the airport and represented around 60% of the Ukrainian aviation industry’s overall passenger flow of 24.3 million travelers during the course of the past year. 

Ukraine is currently experiencing an unprecedented boom in air travel thanks to a number of factors including a fourth consecutive year of economic growth and the June 2017 advent of visa-free travel to the European Union. In recent years, a range of budget airlines have entered the Ukrainian market, greatly enhancing the country’s connectivity, partly to EU destinations.
