International airport Kyiv 
Kyiv Zhuliany

This is one of the oldest Ukraine airports which used to be the main Kyiv airport until Boryspil was built. Afterwards only local flights used this old Soviet hub.

However recently budget airlines WizzAir transfered there all their flights which actually gave it a breath of fresh air.

Kyiv Zhuliany airport has a superb location. Being within city limits it is only 8 km from Kyiv downtown and a very short drive from central train station which makes it a favorite landing spot for independent travelers.
