The Minister of infrastructure Vladimir Omelian predicts the beginning of the flight of the Irish airline Ryanair from Ukraine to 2018. The Minister told reporters in Kiev on August 29, according to «Ukrainian news».
According to him, «Ryanair had every reason in September 2017 to begin flights from the international airports «Borispol» and «Lviv».
«It’s artificial barriers, is specifically disrupted the negotiation process, deferred «for later» in the hope that this will never happen. But I have to disappoint all who wanted it – Ryanair fly. Next year for sure, and from «Boryspil» also,» said Omeljan.
In mid-March, 2017 commercial Director of Ryanair, David O’brien said that the airline from October 2017 will carry out 15 flights per week from Kiev and 16 flights per week from Lviv.The cost of a flight to Europe from Ukraine had to be from €20.
On 5 July the Director of the Boryspil Paul Ryabikin announced that it has signed an agreement with Ryanair. However, on 7 July, in Boryspil, said that some of the requirements of the low-cost carrier can result in the loss of the airport in the amount of 2 billion UAH a year.
July 10 Ryabikin said that Ryanair has put forward conditions that are unfavorable for the enterprise, and some, according to the Director of the airport, contrary to the Ukrainian legislation. He added that he will withdraw the signature under the contract if Ryanair will insist on their demands.
On the same day, Ryanair announced that it cancels flights to Ukraine because of the failure to the Boryspil airport of agreements reached by the company with the Ukrainian Ministry of infrastructure. The airline said that the Kiev airport chose to protect companies with high rates (mentioned, in particular, the company «Ukraine International airlines») and has deprived Ukrainians of the access to cheap European fares.
July 13, Ryabikin announced the resumption of negotiations with the European airline.
Ryanair – Europe’s largest low-cost airline with headquarters in Dublin, the Irish. Ryanair is present in 34 countries and makes 1800 trips per day.
