Boryspil Airport Is to Be Reopened in Ukraine First

Ukraine has once again broached the subject of reviving the aviation sector.  The Boryspil Airport is planned to be reopened in Ukraine first, according to the Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Sybiha. The reopening will take place as soon as the necessary conditions are met.

“This return to normalcy is possible because Ukraine has become stronger. Now, we are capable of ensuring the security of this facility, thanks to our Defense Forces and our friends,” he stated.

During a recent visit to the United States, Andriy Yermak, the head of the Ukrainian president’s office, stated that Ukraine might reopen one of its airports for flights.  Currently, there are two contenders – Lviv and Uzhgorod. Most experts lean towards the option of Uzhgorod, situated close to the border with Slovakia, allowing an aircraft to enter NATO and EU airspace almost immediately after takeoff.
