Arriving In Kharkiv
Kharkiv International Airport is situated around 10 km outside of the city of Kharkiv and consists of a new passenger terminal alongside a smaller VIP terminal. When you have arrived at the airport there are a number of ways to reach the city including by bus, trolleybus and minibus, so you don’t have to take a taxi if you don’t want to.

Kharkiv International Airport handles a variety of regional flights but does not yet serve any direct flights from the UAE, so travelers based in the UAE will need to make a stopover somewhere in order to complete the journey. If you only want to make a single stopover, you may want to make a transfer to Istanbul Ataturk Airport which serves regular flights to and from Kharkiv.
