The largest low-cost carrier in Europe, the Irish-based Ryanair airline, is considering entering the Ukrainian market. This was announced by Minister of Infrastructure Andrii Pyvovarskyi, the CFTS portal reports.

"Ryanair is potentially ready to enter Ukraine, EasyJet is not," said Pyvovarskyi.

He also said that the Lvov airport was willing to accept any proposals from Ryanair regarding reduction of fees and granting of incentives by the airport.

As the CFTS portal reported, Infrastructure Minister Borys Kolesnikov also said on 24 January 2012 that Ryanair might begin regular flights in May 2012. The carrier was expected to link London, Paris, and Barcelona with Donetsk and Lvov.

Pyvovarskyi also said that his deputy Volodymyr Shulmeister is currently in negotiations with top managers of the WizzAir airline to persuade them not to close the airline’s office in Ukraine.
