"One of the tasks in my contract is the resumption of activities of Terminals F and B.

"We have already prepared a plan for the resumption of activities of Terminal F for servicing low-cost carriers. As soon as we understand there are 15 low-cost carriers, we will open Terminal F for them, otherwise it will be a loss-making terminal.

"The terminal is likely to open for the summer navigation of 2018, but flights must be provided for this," he stated at a meeting with journalists in Kyiv.

Earlier, former head of the airport Yevhen Dykhne noted Terminal F is the demonstration of state mismanagement: when it was being built, it did not fit into the airport development strategy at that time.

According to the Ministry of Infrastructure, $40 million was invested in Terminal F in 2009-2014.

It has been the base for Ukraine International Airlines since 2010 to 2013. The airport mothballed Terminal F in 2013.
