The Kyiv airports (Boryspil and Kyiv) on the days of holding the Champions League 2018 finals are going to additionally accept about 140-160 flights with fans and guests, according the Ukrainian State Air Traffic Services Enterprise (UkSATSE).

In addition, the arrival of a significant number of business aircraft is expected, but there are no exact data on the number.
As reported, UEFA expects that the majority of fans who will come to the Champions League finals in Kyiv on May 26 will fly back by charter flights after the match.
"It is expected that the preferred option for most traveling fans will be charter flights arriving and departing on the day of the final, and therefore accommodation in hotels and other places of residence won't be needed," the press service of UEFA told Interfax-Ukraine, asked whether UEFA is concerned about the situation with the availability of rooms and prices for hotels and other accommodation in Kyiv on the days of the Champions League final.
UEFA also noted that the issues of transport communication and accommodation are resolved by the city authorities of Kyiv and the local organizing committee, which will help plan the transfer to the finalist clubs and their fans.
