Irish low-cost air carrier Rynair is now negotiating with five Ukrainian airports about new flights. It considers the opportunity to start the flights in new directions in Ukraine next year. Michael O'Leary, Ryanair's CEO said this in his interview with a Ukrainian newspaper.  

'We're having talks with another five Ukrainian cities - perhaps we will set our flights there. I guess we will develop and build up our presence on the market in Ukraine quite rapidly', he said.

He added, though, that it's too early to speak of any results due to limitations in the intergovernmental agreements, which need to be discussed with Ukraine's infrastructure minister

When asked if the negotiations are underway with Odesa, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Kherson and Vinnytsia, O'Leary replied that the discussion continues with all the mentioned cities. 'I'll be glad if we can offer our passengers flights to such beautiful city as Odesa,' he said. Ryanair's CEO added that opening new flights to Kyiv is the company's priority in this market.

Earlier, the state-owned enterprise Boryspil International Airport said it expected to confirm the earlier announced schedule for flights operated by the Irish low-cost airline in May 2018. The enterprise's director Pavlo Ryabikin said at the Infrastructure Forum 2018 in Kyiv.
