The Boryspil airport plans to build a new runway by 2022. The airport’s General Director Pavlo Riabikin announced this in an interview with the RBK-Ukraine publication, the CFTS portal reports.
According to him, the feasibility study for the project will be completed this month. Riabikin said that Chinese investors were ready to invest USD 280-300 million in construction of the runway.
“Next year will be spent on its design. Its construction will take two to three years, i.e. the project will be completed in 2022,” he said.
He added that the new runway will be located near Terminal F and that it will replace a runway that was built during the Soviet era. The latter will serve as a technological platform. It will also be able to receive aircraft performing emergency landing.
“In addition, the airport will continue to operate the runway situated near Terminal D. Thus, we will have two operational runways and one non-operational,” Riabikin said.
As reported earlier, Riabikin recently said that the airport’s Terminal F would re-open in spring 2019.
