Airlines operators in Ukraine have seen a strong rebound in 2021 after heavy losses in 2020. During January-May 2021, Ukraine’s largest airport (Kyiv Boryspil) saw passenger numbers recover to 60% of the levels seen in 2019.
In May 2021, due to security concerns, Ukraine banned its airlines from entering the airspace of Belarus following a major incident with a Ryanair flight heading from Athens to Vilnius. The airplane was requested to land in Minsk airport in order that the authorities could arrest a Belarusian journalist, with the incident receiving worldwide attention.
The Ukrainian government launched a new national airline – Bees Airline – in 2021 in order to promote the country’s aircraft industry with it ordering new aircraft from the Ukrainian producer, Antonov. It hopes that this will boost the popularity of domestic air travel, which remains limited despite the fact that Ukraine is one of Europe’s largest nations in terms of land area.
Currently, the vast majority of air traffic in and out of Ukraine is fulfilled by major airports in Kyiv, while the country’s more remote regions are quite poorly connected in terms of air transportation. However, the Ukrainian government aims to fix this regional inequality in air travel through public-private partnerships.
