Kharkiv International Airport (Ukrainian: Міжнародний аеропорт "Харків"), (IATA: HRKICAO: UKHH) is an airport located in Kharkiv, Ukraine. The airport is the main airfield serving the city of Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city. Located to the south-east of the city centre, in the city's Kominternivskyi district.

History[edit]

The main terminal at Kharkiv was built in the 1950s in a socialist neo-classical style favoured by Joseph Stalin. However, with the award of Euro 2012 to Poland and Ukraine, the Kharkiv International Airport has built a new modern international terminal in order to comply with UEFA regulations. The old building was renovated to become a VIP terminal.

Since 2013 the airport operates a CATII instrument landing system (ILS).
