The trains on the route “Kyiv-Pasazhyrsky – Boryspil Airport” will be running every 30-40 minutes at peak times and with interval 40 minutes-hour and a half at other time. Yevhen Kravtsov, the acting head of “Ukrzaliznytsia” (state railway company) revealed this information as LIGA.net reported.
“At the first stage, we plan that the periodicity of traffic of the express will be 30-40 minutes. At the less busy traffic, from 40 minutes up to an hour and a half,” Kravtsov said.
According to him, now they discuss the frequency of the train’s operation from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m.
“There is an issue of the number of the flights at nights. As far as I know, there are not many of them. So does it make sense to launch the night express or we just need to increase the intervals? But as a matter of course, we work out round-the-clock mode of operation,” he noted.
It is expected that the final schedule of the train will be announced soon.
“Now we agree on the timetable. We consider that after the launch of the express, the patch of the road between “Darnytsya” and “Boryspil” will one of the tensest in Ukraine. There will be a great number of the passenger suburban traffic and the express will be added to it,” Kravtsov noted.
Earlier Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman claimed that the construction of the high-speed railway between Boryspil Airport and Kyiv will be finished until December 1.
As we reported, the railway platforms are constructed near the left wing of the landing hall of Boryspil International Airport's Terminal D. It was specified that the two platforms will service the transfers between the Ukrainian capital and the airport itself.
