Zhulyany airport, Kiev

| More

Zhulyany Airport (IEV) is the old airport of the capital. It has been abandoned for years by the major airlines which have opted for the well-known and most modern airport located in Boryspol (KBP), outside Kiev.

That was until March 27th 2011 when the Wizz Air flights were moved from Terminal F of Kiev Boryspil to Zhuliani, which is a good airport for low cost companies.

The Terminal F is the newest terminal of Kiev Boryspil.

Terminal F Kiev airportTerminal F Kiev airport

Previously, all international flights were departing and arriving at the Terminal B. Now with the exception of some flights, especially those of Aerosvit, almost all others companies (Lufthansa, Alitalia, etc …) use the new terminal.

The new terminal is situated not far from the other terminals. Terminal A (domestic flights) is  within a walking distance from Terminal F.

As soon as we got off the plane we arrived (via bus) in a large room where there is the passport control. The counters are divided into three types: citizens of Ukraine, No Visa or Visa. In reality this devision is not strictly followed.

After the passport control (the immigration card is not more required), we arrive in the baggage claim area.

Baggage claim, Terminal FAfter the passport control

Pick up your luggage and proceed as usual to customs control (Green or Red Channel). We crossed the green one and we were asked to put our luggage in a scanner. Nobody asked us to open our bag.

Finally you will get in the public area where you will be met by several taxi drivers waiting for customers. (say niet and they will let you alone)

So far we don’t have more information to share:)
