Kiev Zhuliany Airport (IEV): Historical Background

Kiev IEV Airport, built in 1923 as a military airfield, has been used for civil aviation since 1924. Even then, the necessary facilities were in place for scheduled and private flights, even if the air traffic is still not operating at its maximum capacity. For a long time, there were only domestic flights but after Ukraine gained independence, Kiev Airport also gained importance for international air traffic. Passenger numbers increased rapidly and aircraft passed through Kiev round the clock.

In recent years, Kiev Airport has been steadily expanded. Today, it boasts modern technical equipment and a runway of 2,310 metres in length across three terminals. The runway is suitable for almost all types of aircraft – only long-haul jets are, unfortunately, used to a limited extent, since the runway may be too short for them. Transport connections to Kiev are excellent – the larger Boryspil Airport is about 20 kilometres away from the city centre.

Private Jet to Kiev: Experience the Ukrainian Capital

A visit with a private jet to Kiev is well worth it as the Ukrainian capital has much to offer. Several buildings in Kiev are UNESCO World Heritage sites – this includes Saint Sophia's Cathedral, which, nowadays, is no longer used for church services, but serves as a museum. Another attraction is the Kiev Monastery of the Caves. The complex includes numerous impressive buildings and, of course, the artificial monk’s caves to which the name relates, where you can find tombs, monk cells and even underground churches. The caves can be visited by the public, however, many areas are reserved for pilgrims. There are also many museums in the city worth seeing, such as the National Art Museum or the National Historical Museum of Ukraine. Additionally, the 62 metre high statue named The Motherland Calls is very impressive; it commemorates the victory of the Red Army in the Great Patriotic War.
