With Ryanair planning to start flights from 12 EU cities to Kyiv Boryspil this fall, city tourism officials expect to see a record 2 million foreign tourists here in 2018. This would be 25% over last year and would top the city’s previous record of 1.8 million in 2013, Anton Taranenko, head of the city’s Tourism and Promotion department tells reporters. Prior to 2014 more than half of tourists were from Russia and the ex-USSR. Now, the top five countries are: Belarus, Israel, the United States, Germany and Turkey. Americans and Germans are attracted by the return of cruises up the Dnipro. While business tourism dominates, ‘conventional’ tourism accounts for 40% of city visits this year, up from 30% last year, Taranenko tells Interfax-Ukraine. Ukraine now offers visas on arrival at Boryspil for citizens of 33 countries, including Australia, China and India.
