Khmelnitsky multimillionaire might sell airport "Juliani" - media

Khmelnitsky multimillionaire might sell airport "Juliani" - media
http://www.epravda.com.ua/news/2016/07/25/600217/
Vasyl Khmelnytsky multimillionaire who owns the airport "Juliani," admitted that can sell the asset if offered good money.
He said in an interview liga.net.
"If I offer good money for" Juliani, "I sell it" - said the businessman, adding that such proposals so far have been reported.
"What we are, I do not know. That's take, for example," Juliani. "We've spent on him 70 million dollars, terminals built and took a loan of 50 million dollars. Today EBITDA Zhulyan - 11 million, and to assess the business it needs to multiply six. and the sound! Khmelnitsky has airport! Yes, we are working on every flight, increasing passenger traffic, minimize costs. of course, we are not going it at a loss to sell and are fighting for it to work more efficiently, "- said to Khmelnytsky, speaking of the value of the asset.
Asked about the plans of the airport, Khmelnitsky, said the plan to provide more services and attract new routes.


===

Zhuliani used to be a really small place. The runway was extended a little - there is no room for a long extention.
And then when Wizzair started landing the Airbus 300 there - the place took off.
The problem - poor transport links to the centre. There is a trolleybus and minibuses - cheap.. 20 cents or so - but they take a long time. Often traffic jams.
I have taken a minibus - marschrut - there. It was ok. But no room for major luggage. Hand baggage is ok.
As with Borispol, taxis rule.
Best to land there away from the rush hour.
Nearest metro - not sure. Maybe Voksalna. Or now - a new station - Teremki. Shouldn't be a bad road link from the airport to there. The ring-road.

Interesting. Military parades have been basically avoided during the war against Russia.
But - 25th anniversary - that's a big one. Why not? As long as they have enough on the front line to stop Putin.
