The Boryspil international airport expects to increase its passenger traffic to 15 million per year within the next three years.

The airport’s head Pavlo Riabikin announced this at a meeting with a delegation from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which was led by the agency’s President Shinichi Kitaoka. The meeting took place on June 17, but the airport only announced it on Tuesday.

According to Riabikin, increase of the airport’s passenger traffic will “actualize” the issue of reconstruction of its second runway in cooperation with JICA.

The Boryspil international airport is the largest airport in Ukraine. It occupies about 1,000 hectares. The airport has two runways: one with a length of 4,000 meters and a width of 60 meters and the other with a length of 3,500 meters and a width of 63 meters. Four passenger terminals and a mail/cargo complex are located on the territory of the airport.

According to the airport’s financial plan for 2017, its passenger traffic should reach 10.16 million people, which is 18% more than its passenger traffic in 2016.
