In January 2016, Ukraine’s largest airport, Kyiv’s Borysil, served 520,400 passengers. This is an increase of 3.7% from January last year and shows a continuation of the growth trend it set last year. At the end of 2015, the Airport posted 5.6% YOY traffic growth.

Boryspil’s management explained that the traffic growth is due to the successful implementation of the hub model, which led to an increase in transit passenger numbers. In January 2016, the transit segment grew 140% YOY to 127,400 passengers.

Boryspil continues to attract passengers against the background of Ukraine’s decreasing traffic in the aftermath of political and economic uncertainty. Last year, the cumulative traffic at Ukrainian airports decreased 1.8% to 10.7 million passengers.

The unfavorable factors plagued Boryspil a year ago: its January 2015 traffic was 14.2% less than in the previous year.
