Ukraine's Boryspil International Airport features among Eastern Europe's top five best airports in the 2021 edition of Skytrax's annual World Airport Awards, which was released in early August.
The World Airport Awards began in 1999, when Skytrax launched its first global airport customer satisfaction survey. The annual ranking is regarded as a quality benchmark for the world airport industry, assessing customer service and facilities. It is voted for by customers in a global airport satisfaction survey. The most recent survey was conducted from August 2020 until July 2021.
In the latest edition, Kyiv's Boryspil International Airport occupies fifth place in the Eastern Europe regional ranking. Budapest was named as the region's top airport, followed by Bucharest, Tallinn, Riga, and the Ukrainian capital. Completing the top ten are Tbilisi, Belgrade, Bratislava, Zagreb, and Sofia.
Boryspil International Airport is currently bouncing back from more than a year of coronavirus-related disruption. The airport served 4.565 million passengers during the first seven months of 2021, representing a 60% year-on-year increase.
