Kiev (Zhuliany) International Airport (Ukrainian: Міжнародний аеропорт "Київ" (Жуляни)) (IATA: IEV, ICAO: UKKK) is one of the two passenger airports of the Ukrainian capital Kiev. It is located in the Zhuliany neighbourhood in the south of the city.

The airport is officially named "Kiev", because it is owned by the city community. However it is not the main Kiev airport. In the 1960s the larger Boryspil International Airport was built near the city of Boryspil. Since that time the old "Kiev" airport became commonly known just as "Zhuliany" (or Kiev-Zhuliany), while it still keeps the official "Kiev" name.

In Soviet times Kiev-Zhuliany was used for domestic flights only. After independence it began receiving some international flights from nearby countries.

Surrounded by major railways, highways and residential districts, the airport has no possibility for expansion and is limited in types and MTOW of aircraft, certificated to operate there.

The airport also features an aviation museum where many unique aircraft are displayed, and a major aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul company, ARP-410, is located nearby.

Apart from Zhuliany and Boryspil, Kiev has a cargo airport situated in the neighbouring town of Gostomel. Hostomel Airport is operated by Antonov plane-manufacturing company and it is home for Antonov Airlines.

Recently some of its territory was handed over to create presentely the largest aviation museum in Ukraine, exhibiting some unique Soviet examples, including original prototypes for famous airliners.

From 3 October 2008 to 25 March 2009, the sole runway was closed for renovation.
