Kyiv Boryspil was Europe’s fastest-growing major airport last year, ACI Europe, the European airport trade association, reports from Brussels. Growing by 21.1%, Boryspil was the fastest growing airport with more than 10 million passengers of the 46 European area airports tracked by the association.
By contrast, passenger traffic at EU airports increased by 3.3% last year, down sharply 5.4% in 2018. At non-EU European airports, passenger traffic growth dropped by almost two thirds, to 3% in 2019.
In its report, ACI cited “impressive growth posted by airports in Ukraine +22.3%.”
