Southwest Kyiv region would have its own international airport
Southwest Kyiv region would have its own international airport, if Sergei Kandaurov, director of Bila Tserkva Airport, has his way. Kandaurov told reporters Tuesday that he has asked the Cabinet to open a passport control office and has asked the Infrastructure Ministry for a feasibility for turning the airport into a multimodal cargo hub. Located near a rail line and the E95 highway to Odesa, the airport already handles cargo flights and has an Antonov repair facility. For passengers, the airport is a 1h15 drive from Sikorsky and a 2-hour drive from Boryspil. The cost of converting and expanding the airport would be $60 million, the airport website says.
