The Boryspil International Airport’s Terminal D is to be transformed into a transit terminal during the period of 2017-2018. The Boryspil International Airport’s acting General Director Yevhen Dykhne announced this in an interview with the CFTS portal.

"One of the tasks we have set ourselves for the period of 2017-2018 is transformation of the dead-end Terminal D into a transit terminal. Unfortunately, we are unable to make major changes to the structure of the terminal because we are currently forced to ‘cut our coat according to our cloth.’ However, we can add 1,400 meters of additional space on two levels for the convenience of transfer passengers. In addition, we plan to expand the Platform D," Dykhne said.

He also said that the airport’s financial plan for 2017 allocates about UAH 200 million for financing this work. The entire project will cost about UAH 800 million.

Next year, the airport plans to add three boarding gates and reconstruct the baggage sorting system.

"We have already signed a contract for the project with the Dutch company Vanderlande," Dykhne said.
