Kyiv Boryspil Express is an airport rail link between Boryspil International Airport and Kyiv opened in November 2018. The service is operated by Ukrzaliznytsia, Ukrainian Railways.

History[edit]

Departure from Boryspil Airport Station

Initially, the project was implemented by the State Agency for Investment and Management of National Projects of Ukraine. Financing was provided by Eximbank of China. PricewaterhouseCoopers has developed a business plan for the implementation of the national Air Express project. In 2017, the project was slowed down due to a lack of funds.

On February 16, 2018, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine allocated funds for the implementation of the project and the works commenced in May. According to Prime Minister Volodymyr Groisman, the railroad construction cost is UAH 580 million.[1]

At the end of November 2018, all necessary construction works were performed. Track 14 at Central Station in Kyiv was reconstructed and a new Boryspil Airport station was built near Terminal D. Kyiv Boryspil Expres officially launched on November 30, 2018.[2]
