Simferopol International Airport

Simferopol International Airport is an airport in Simferopol, de facto the capital of the Republic of Crimea. Built in 1936, the airport today has one international terminal and one domestic terminal.

On 14 May 2015, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine which, de facto, has no control over the airport, voted to rename it Amet-khan Sultan International Airport in memory of Amet-khan Sultan. Another airport named after Amet-khan Sultan is Uytash Airport located in Makhachkala, Dagestan. However, in 2018, Russian citizens voted for the airport to be named after the painter Ivan Aivazovsky after Amet-khan's name was not allowed in the list of final three options to vote for despite being the most popular in the preliminary round of voting.

Since the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation in 2014, the airport is only used for flights to and from Russian airports due to limited international recognition of the annexation.

Boryspil International Airport

Boryspil International Airport is an international airport in Boryspil, 29 km east of Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. It is Ukraine's largest airport, serving 65% of its passenger air traffic, including all its intercontinental flights and a majority of international flights. It is one of two passenger airports that serve Kyiv along with the smaller Zhuliany Airport. Boryspil International Airport was a member of Airports Council International.

On 24 February 2022, Ukraine closed airspace to civilian flights due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, thus closing the airport. The Boryspil Airport was hit by Russian missiles, targeting Ukrainian infrastructure.

Following international practice

Most countries in the world do not recognise Russia's annexation of Crimea. Until/unless that changes, we will continue to list this airport is in an occupied region of Ukraine. Please do not edit to change that β€” repeated efforts to change it will result in account suspension.

re: Crimea

Hi Bill35! In the current iteration of the database: neither Crimea nor Sevastopol are selectable as independent entities or as subdivisions of Russia, only as subdivisions of Ukraine. The United Nations continues to consider Crimea and Sevastopol as Ukrainian territory occupied by Russia. There are instances where OurAirports diverges from strict UN interpretation (ie. Taiwan, Kosovo) and note that the islands of the southern Kuril chain are reckoned as strictly Russian and not Japanese (mirroring decades of de facto control), but for the most part, I believe this site adheres to UN and IATA policy.

Remanded to Website Owner

I am too busy adding unlisted airports and heliports throughout the world to continue to deal with this regional spat. I have remanded this to the OurAirports administrator for an official decision. If he decides to add Crimea and Sevastopol as subdivisions of the Russian Republic, then that's up to him.

Picture of animebirder

Please stop moving this airport to Russia.

Unless and until the UN recognizes the occupation of the Crimean Peninsula by Russia, we should continue to list all airports in Crimea as being in Ukraine. There is no subdivision for Crimea or Sebastopol under the Russia heading. This is not the time or place for nationalistic sentiment -- this is simply abiding by the good-faith standards of database maintenance.

Russian control

This airport is in Crimea, still internationally recognised as part of Ukraine but under Russian military control. Due to international sanctions, only Russian flights are using the airport.

International Airport!

This is a Ukrainian International Airport! As of now there are no - zero - scheduled flights in to this airport. Not International, not domestic. This is not a consequence of the revolution; there have not been any flights for months. [12MAR2014]

what to expect at Simferopol Airport

By the standards of a former Soviet county, the airport is not bad, clean, with OK toilets, and little cafe, a very basic duty free. It could be so much more, but staff are fairly friendly, at least functional and obliging. Really nothing to do there though, no where to spend your money

Last time I visited vinnitsa was in winter 2011. the aiport was in decay and closed by then. As far as I know many small ukraine aiports has closed, this includes the airport of Vinnitsa

Brand New OLD Airport

I think Kyiv did a crummy job on the airport remodel. It is like you have a "brand new" "OLD" airport. What is this deal with buses to airplanes, rain, snow, sleet, hail, etc?

There are so few seats around that it is pitiful. Having generic checkin-counters may seem like a good idea, but is worthless if you are trying to find a specific flight/airline, for example, to just check your bag a little early.

The only good thing I can see is the international departure area, more chairs, and a few resturants that charge in Grivinuias, which are cheap.

Overall, I would only give KBP a 2 or 3 out of 10. It is pitiful compared to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, Minneapolis, and so on.

Poor runway condition (rwy 16) in 2010

I landed in ODS in May 2010 on board a LOT E75 coming in from Warsaw. We used runway 16 which was in relatively poor condition, with lots of summarily repaired cracks.

I saw a few parked (for maintenance ?) aircraft including Yak-42 UR-CER in Fars Air Qeshm (Iran) color scheme.

The terminal building was outdated and not sized to handle significant traffic.

re: Review

Reply to @trozanov:

Shame the custom officers behave like they must rob every traveller, creating their own rules as they go.

Picture of

Avoid this place!

The most disorganized & chaotic place I ever came across! The custom officers believe they have God given right to create their own rules & simply rob the travellers by using their official position. A lot of disrespect & shoking behaviour, especially from teenage custom officers- Forostovez & Gerasimov on the international departures. What a way to present the country! Shame on you!!!

Review

Good High Quality Runway and more european facilities good atc and nice friendly ground services. We flew from UKFK were it was a complete disaster and we expected the same here. However i was wrong. Expensive services however still much cheaper than in the states or europe.

Review

Very dull airport old abandoned. Most planes aren't used and are just standing there. Small parking space very very very bad facilities and ATC. Runway is visible however ILS is messed up and concrete needs repair. Mainly used for nothing really some people keep their cessna's there however again the facilities are very bad. Had to refuel but i chose to fly to UKFF (simferopol) and refuel there. Again i want to emphasis that no flights or airlines exist or fly from this airport. However it used to operate in soviet union, now it is abandoned and has 3 people working on it. No equipment and no fire fighters! My client ( i am a pilot of a buissness jet) didnt even get his passport checked by customs i wont even mention security.

But on the otherhand the parking space and ATC and landing fees were ridiculously cheap. Its like heaven for pilots if only their were good facilities...

has the airport in Vinnitsa been renovated or upgraded from the time I visited the city 3 years ago?

Temporarily closed

This is Kiev's original, smaller airport (Boryspil, further out of town, is the main one).

As of 2009-01-22, the airport is still temporarily closed for repairs and upgrades (with all scheduled flights shifted to Boryspil), but is scheduled to reopen on 1 February.
