Waiting room, terminal A, Boryspil

There are not many sits but this should be not a big problem as there are not so many people as in the terminal B. The main reason is that local people don’t use plane for internal transfers but prefer to travel by train or by bus.

The check in area is at the end of the room. On the monitors over the desks, you can read the name of the plane, the aircompany and the destination.

Terminal A Kiev, security checkTo the boarding room

The security control is just after the door under the pannel gates A1 -A4.

Once passed the security check, you have just to wait for the boarding time and then finally take your plane.


The gates are not so “modern” they are simple doors which give right outside the terminal where the bus for the plane come to take the passengers.

The 4 gates are one next to the other and so if more than one plane is doing the boarding can happen that outside you will find not 1 bus but even 3 buses!

Be carefull to take the correct bus for no to end to a different plane. Read the destination on the side of the bus before to take it.

Have a nice flight!
