Boryspil International Airport is the main airport serving Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. This airport accounts for over 70% of all passenger traffic in the country and all of its intercontinental flights. Boryspil Airport opened in 1959 but before the independence of Ukraine from the Soviet Union in 1990 it remained small, with strict limits on the amount of international flights to Kiev. After independence the government reorganized the airport and convinced several airlines to use Boryspil Airport as a hub. Since then passengers has grown steadily to over 8 million a year making this airport one of Eastern Europe's busiest airports.
The Zürich Airport or also known as Kloten Airport is with over 25 million passengers a year the largest airport of Switzerland.
Zürich Airport opened after World War II, in 1946 and within a decade the airport had to expand already because of the quick increase of flights and passengers. Growth continued until the crisis at Swissair which had to ground all its flights due to cash-flow crisis after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Zürich Airport lost a lot of traffic with only gradually began to return after the take-over and restart of Swissair by Lufthansa as Swiss International Air Lines in 2005. The Airport got another blow in 2015 when Etihad Regional decided to cancel most its flights from Zürich.
