Lviv airport's new terminal building has an area of 34,000m² with a capacity of handling 1,000 passengers an hour.[3] Of the $200m, it is expected that the Ukrainian government will provide $70m, including $14m in 2008, and $130m will come from private investors.[4] The expansion project will include a 700-meter extension of the existing runway and a new airport terminal capable of handling up to 1,220 passengers per hour (5.69 million passenger annually).[3][5]

The airport used to be a focus city for Wizz Air Ukraine, which served three international routes to Italy (Naples, Bergamo, and Treviso) from here until the airline shut down in April 2015.[6]
