Greetings,

So the whole world has come to learn a lot about Ukraine since Feb 24th 2022, and there is so much to admire in this nation and its people.

One of the things we learned, is that for the Ukrainians, they state the spelling of their capital city in our alphabet should be Kyiv rather than Kiev.

This article from the Guardian newspaper sums it up :

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/feb/25/how-to-pronounce-and-spell-kyiv-kiev-ukraine-and-why-it-matters

Also, as per the official airport's page, they write their name (in our alphabet) as follows : Boryspil
See:  https://kbp.aero/en/

So without getting into anything too deep or controversial, I was just hoping that Airline Mogul could update the way they spell Kyiv, so that perhaps we could read:

"Boryspil International Airport - Kyiv" rather that the current "Borispol Airport - Kiev".

Thanks for your consideration.
