Dnipropetrovsk International Airport (Ukrainian: Міжнародний аеропорт «Дніпропетровськ») (IATA: DNK, ICAO: UKDD) is an airport serving Dnipropetrovsk, a city in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine. It is located 15 kilometres (8 NM) southeast from the city center.
The airport resides at an elevation of 481 feet (147 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 09/27 with a concrete surface measuring 2,841 by 44 metres (9,321 × 144 ft). The airport is currently owned by its major airline partner Dniproavia. This has resulted in a number of management problems and has slowed the airfield's development as Dniproavia has, on a number of occasions, refused to be forthcoming with the required funds to undertake a comprehensive modernisation program. In addition to this, foreign airlines have found it difficult to gain access to Dnipropetrovsk as a result of Dniproavia's protectionist policies along routes to and from the airport.
As of 2011 the airport's owners have initiated a program to develop a new terminal complex at Dnipropetrovsk International. This project will see the construction of a large new international terminal, similar in specifications to the newly built terminal at Kharkiv International Airport. It is believed that once constructed, Dniproavia and all other international airlines will use the new terminal, whilst domestic and charter carriers will use the 1960s terminal which currently serves as the airport's only passenger handling facility.
