The Mykolaiv airport has handled more than 3,000 passengers since resuming operation, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Facebook page of the Mykolaiv region’s Governor Oleksii Savchenko.

“We reopened the Mykolaiv International Airport at the end of 2018, and in addition to being an ‘air gate’ for traveling, it is the region’s ‘investment gate.’ Over the past two years, the airport has been restored from scratch and its services have already been used by more than 3,000 passengers," Savchenko said.

Currently, the airport regularly handles international flights to Egypt, and it will begin handling flights to Turkey from May this year.

“But I, as the head of the region, am not satisfied because residents should be able to perform flights to Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, and other cities in Ukraine,” said Savchenko.

In addition, according to him, the project for development of the Mykolaiv airport has already been approved by Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian.

As the CFTS portal reported, the Mykolaiv airport aims to handle 200,000 passengers per year.
