Kyiv Boryspil Airport Guide
In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Kyiv Boryspil Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!
I found a window ledge to lay on by a heater, and was able to get a little sleep.
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Boryspil International Airport.
What to Expect
- A large and busy international airport with two separate terminals for domestic/international charter flights (Terminal B) and international flights (Terminal D). Clean facilities and a wide variety of shops, restaurants and services are available.
- Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
- Plenty of seating, both landside and airside!
- No designated smoking areas, so the terminals smell smoky from travelers who smoke almost anywhere they wish!
Where to Sleep
- There are plenty of armrest-free seats and benches throughout. Try Gates D12 - D13, on the side opposite the gate entrances, for a peaceful, uninterrupted night of sleep. The area is darkened at night, with no loud TVs, and a coffee kiosk located nearby. The area is patrolled by security, who may check your passport, but will otherwise leave you alone.
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
Good to Know
- Economy class passengers can pay to enter one of the airport’s first class lounges. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
