Zhuliany International Airport by Private Jet

Overview summary

History

Opened in 1923, Zhuliany Airport was initially used by the military with just one commercial operator using the airport, Ukrainian Airways – who were fully integrated with Russian national airline Aeroflot during the Soviet Union.

Zhuliany was the only passenger airport serving the Ukrainian capital up until the 1960s when Boryspil Intentional Airport was built. Featuring a longer runway and larger terminal facilities, Boryspil became the main airport serving Kyiv leaving Zhuliany with domestic traffic only.

In recent years private jet flights into Zhuliany have significantly increased, due to the rising quality of service in aircraft handling and expansion of facilities dedicated to private aviation.

With a runway length of just 1800m, operations out of Zhuliany with long range private jets are slightly restricted. Fully loaded for trips of up to 13 hours, aircraft such as the Global Express and Gulfstream G550 require more than 1800m for takeoff, so ultra long-haul flights are best operated from Boryspil International Airport with its 4000m runway.
