What to Expect

Kyiv Zhuliany Airport (IEV) is the smallest of the city’s two international airports. It has three terminals: domestic, international, and business. The International Terminal A is the largest terminal and serves all international and some domestic flights. All have been built or renovated in the last few years.  WiFi is available to help pass the time.   Economy class travellers can pay to access one of two airport lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for locations and rates.

Sleeping at Zhuliany Airport

A reader (August 2018) tells us that the airport can get quite cramped and has limited seats, so sleeping may be an issue.  For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See the Airport Hotels section below for locations, or read traveller airport reviews for more tips.

To help us keep this guide up-to-date, you can add or update information or write a review to submit airport tips and photos. You can also visit the airport’s website for current information.  For more airport information, continue scrolling down to explore more in our Zhuliany Airport Guide.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security.
