The Ukraine’s Kharkiv International Airport has revealed plans to reduce passenger servicing to just one minute as part of its preparations for the influx of passengers during the European Football Championships next summer.

As part of the redevelopment of the airport, which has already seen the construction of a new passenger terminal, 25 security checkpoints will be implemented and the passenger registration system will be altered, allowing passengers to receive their return boarding pass at their origin destination for the duration of Euro 2012.

This is designed to both speed up processing and increase the airport’s capacity.

Serhiy Makotseba, Deputy Head on Aviation Security, DCH (the company responsible for the modernisation of the airport), said: “The calculations and tests we carried out prove that our airport is ready to cope with the expected capacity.”
