Zaporizhzhia International Airport
The presence of a modern airport is very important for the development of the city’s infrastructure. Due to attractive conditions, passenger traffic increases, which in turn will have a positive effect on the level of development of the region’s economy and increase the number of tourists!
Since 2015, the number of passengers at the Zaporizhzhia International Airport has increased several times. In particular, in 2019, the airport served over 400,000 passengers. A number of international flights have been opened over the years. In particular, to Warsaw, Barcelona, Budapest, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Krakow and other cities. Residents of the city have the opportunity to travel to many European cities, and the cost of tickets to many of them is from 15 EUR . The budget flight to Kyiv is also very popular, with ticket prices starting at 500 UAH.
There are plans to open flights to Rimini, Heraklion, Prague, Larnaca and other cities. Unfortunately, the situation has been negatively affected by the coronavirus epidemic. Because of this, many flights were temporarily closed, or their opening was postponed, and passenger traffic decreased.
However, Zaporizhzhia International Airport continues to develop. As early as next year, passenger traffic may increase to 500-700 thousand. In the future, the new terminal will be able to serve up to 1 million passengers per year. However, much will depend on the situation with the coronavirus infection.
It is important that the Zaporizhzhia International Airport will be able to serve the neighboring territories where more than 4 million people live.
Attractive conditions for flights, well-developed infrastructure and high-quality tourist products can make Zaporizhzhia not only a city that will be remembered exclusively for its airport, but also a good tourist center, which is worth visiting and be sure to include in the tourist route!
