Zhytomyr International Airport (Ukrainian: Міжнародний аеропорт «Житомир») (ICAO: UKKV) is an airport in Zhytomyr, Ukraine.

History[edit]

The airport started operating in 1939.[1] But in November 2011 it was stripped from its registration as civil airport because it had not received any airplanes since 1990.[1] On 30 December 2015 the airport again received an airport certificate and reopened on 29 January 2016, with the (technical) flight of a Saab 340.[1][2] Maintenance for the fleet of Yanair is provided at Zhytomyr Airport.[1]
