Opening the airport in Lviv could help secure the skies over Ukraine.

This statement was made by the head of the Lviv Regional State Administration, Maksym Kozytskyi, during the National Tourism Summit.

According to him, opening the airport serves two purposes: on one hand, it contributes to closing the sky over Ukraine, and on the other hand, it provides an opportunity for foreign investors and tourists to visit Ukraine. Foreign tourists will get to see what Ukraine is like. The airport will enable our people to travel more and realize that the distance from Lviv to London is almost the same as from Lviv to Donetsk.

Participants of the tourism summit also agreed with the head of the Lviv Regional State Administration that the airport in Lviv will help increase the number of visitors and revitalize the industry. Open skies will allow even more tourists to be accommodated despite the existing railway routes from Kyiv to the Carpathians.

Earlier, in November 2023, it was reported that Ukraine might open one of its airports for civilian flights before the end of the war, provided there is a significant strengthening of air defense and protection of Ukrainian airspace. Previously, the possible cities from which flights might be opened included airports in Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, and Uzhhorod.
