  • Challenges and opportunities for Ukrainian aviation at Aviation and Tourism forum

    Boryspil International Airport became a communication platform to discuss the future of Ukrainian aviation and tourism industries within the framework of the forum “Large Construction: Aviation and Tourism” on November 25, 2021.

    Ronald Schulz, Senior Partner at Lufthansa Consulting held a presentation in the panel about the challenges and opportunities for Ukrainian Aviation. 

    Lufthansa Consulting predicts the Ukrainian aviation to recover by 2024, but will see structural changes expedited by the current pandemic. Like a rise in LCC share, more P2P routes, more growth in regional airports and a greater focus on sustainability. The local aircraft producer has an opportunity to step into the aircraft conversion business (passenger to freighter), and to come up with a good short and medium-haul passenger aircraft, in the best case - a green one.

    The event was hosted by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine. The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, held the opening speech pointing to the important strategic goals for further development of the aviation industry. These include the launch of the national air carrier, new modern aerodromes, transformation of Boryspil International Airport into the Eastern European aviation hub, restoration of aviation construction industry and enhancement of partnership with the European Union.

    Director General of Boryspil International Airport Oleksiy Dubresky said that although the airport was able to adapt to the new conditions caused by the pandemic and reach the effective performance levels, growth was the way forward. A large focus will be the development of the Airport infrastructure as this is the key success factor in implementation of the hub development strategy providing European level service.
