The Ryanair low-cost airline will begin operating flights to Ukraine in October or November this year. Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian announced this at a joint news briefing with the State Aviation Service’s head Oleksandr Bilchuk, the CFTS correspondent reports.
"As for Ryanair, we are not commenting on any details until contracts are signed with two state airports. I can inform you that the approximate date of launch of flights is between late October and early November," the minister said in response to a question about when Ryanair will enter Ukraine.
As reported, the low-cost airline previously planned to enter the Ukrainian market last autumn. However, the airline postponed its planned entry after negotiations with the Boryspil airport ended unsuccessfully.
The airline’s top managers flew to Kyiv on a Ryanair corporate aircraft for talks with the Ukrainian authorities on February 21 evening.
After that, it was announced that the low-cost airline still plans to launch flights to two Ukrainian airports (the Boryspil and Lviv airports).
