International Airports of Ukraine

Ukrainian Airports - Overview

If you look at the list of the airports of Ukraine, you can find about 30 air terminal complexes. But only half of them can receive international flights and even less offer this service. Because of the high prices for domestic flights, most Ukrainians prefer to go by trains. This is the main reason why there are only about a dozen of actually operating airports in Ukraine.

Two large air terminals are located in the vicinity of Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. These international airports are Boryspil and Zhuliany. The remaining ones are scattered throughout the country and located near the largest cities of Ukraine. Unfortunately not all of them offer a relatively high level of comfort - only the airports of Kyiv and a couple of others.
