FacilitiesEdit

The airport resides at an elevation of 481 feet (147 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 08/26 with a concrete surface measuring 2,841 by 44 metres (9,321 ft × 144 ft).[2] The airport is currently owned by its major airline partner Dniproavia. This has resulted in a number of management problems and has slowed the airfield's development as Dniproavia has, on a number of occasions, refused to be forthcoming with the required funds to undertake a comprehensive modernization program. In addition to this, foreign airlines have found it difficult to gain access to Dnipropetrovsk as a result of Dniproavia's protectionist policies along routes to and from the airport.

In 2011, the airport's owners initiated a program to develop a new terminal complex at Dnipropetrovsk International. This project envisaged the construction of a large new international terminal, similar in specifications to the newly built terminal at Kharkiv International Airport. However, the construction was soon frozen and, as of 2017, building work has not progressed beyond the laying of foundations.

As of September 2020, the completion of a new runway is foreseen for late 2022 or early 2023.[4]
