The Boryspil international airport expects to attract investment in its transit cargo terminal. The airport’s acting General Director Yevhen Dykhne announced this at a Ukrainian infrastructure forum in Kyiv on Friday, April 22, the Interfax Ukraine news agency reports.
"We intend to announce a new investment project. It will be a project to search for an investor in the transit cargo terminal. Our goal is to take advantage of our geographical location … in Europe," said Dykhne.
According to him, details of the project will be made public in the near future.
On passenger terminals, Dykhne said that, apart from the Terminal D, none of the airport’s existing terminals could participate in strategic development of the airport.
According to him, the plans for 2017 include launch of a pipeline system for supply of fuel. "We expect this to eliminate the existing technological monopoly," Dykhne said.
The Boryspil international airport is the largest airport in Ukraine. It occupies about 1,000 hectares. The airport has two runways: with lengths of 4,000 and 3,500 meters. Four passenger terminals (only the Terminal D and a business terminal are in operation) and a mail/cargo complex are located on the territory of the airport.
