"Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman has just signed a Cabinet of Ministers directive on approval of the cost estimate for construction of a new passenger terminal at the Zaporizhia airport. All the formal stages have been completed. It has been a difficult journey... There is a lot of work ahead…," the mayor wrote.
The Cabinet of Ministers approved the project for construction of the passenger terminal and service facilities at the Zaporizhia international airport at a meeting on September 7.
According to plans, the three-story terminal will be able to handle 400 passengers per hour (250 international and 150 domestic passengers). The project also involves construction of a gas boiler, a pumping station, and a transformer substation.
The total estimated cost of construction is UAH 543.159 million (in May 2017 prices), including the cost of construction work (UAH 207.214 million), equipment, furniture, and inventory (UAH 234.944 million), and other expenditures (UAH 101 million).
The construction project is to be completed in two years.
The Zaporizhia airport has a runway with an artificial surface and dimensions of 2,500 by 42 meters. It has an apron for parking 11 aircraft, a terminal, and other facilities. The runway at the airport was repaired in spring this year.
