Donetsk International Airport has reopened following extensive renovations. The airport is now capable of handling 3,100 passengers an hour, up from 700.

Donetsk also recently installed a new runway that can handle traffic by heavy equipment, including the Boeing 747 and Airbus A380.

The renovations have been completed in time for the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, which will be partly held in Donetsk. The country spent $758 million on the airport, in addition to private investments and the city’s budget.

Donetsk is the fifth-largest city in the Ukraine, with more than 1.5 million residents in its metropolitan area.
