Kharkiv Airport Shows Steady Growth in July

Kharkiv International Airport served record 87,200 passengers in July 2017. This is 26 percent more than in July 2016 when 69,000 people used the airport.

As for 2017 first half, passenger traffic amounted to 451,300 passengers. It made 45 percent more than in the same period last year.

The rise in passenger traffic is related to the introduction of a Turkish Airlines new daily flight Kharkiv-Istanbul in March, increased number of flights to Warsaw and Tel Aviv, and load growth of all existing routes. Also, Kharkiv airport notes the popularity of renewed summer flights to Burgas in Bulgaria, Tivat in Montenegro, and Monastir in Tunisia, which will continue to carry passengers to the sea coasts up to September.

The number of flights to Warsaw has increased from seven to nine per week. This direction remains one of the most popular. Many Ukrainians work and rest in Poland. Besides, the Warsaw airport offers convenient connections with flights to the cities of other European countries and the United States.

The weekly number of flights to Tel Aviv increased from three to four – on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Thus, after having set a recent record of passenger traffic in May 2017, Kharkiv airport continues encouraging progress.
