“For now we’ve found a solution, so that the Ukrainians could fly with low-cost airlines. While a terminal is being built in Hostomel, Boryspil and Zhuliany can temporarily provide their services for Ryanair,” he said.
Earlier Volodymyr Groysman suggested developing Hostomel airport and making it a base for low-cost airlines in Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier, Ryanair canceled the planned entry into the Ukrainian market on July 10. The company noted that Boryspil took the side of the airlines with the high tariffs, including the International Airlines of Ukraine. The Director General of Boryspil Pavlo Ryabikin airport accused Ryanair in the political pressure to sign the contract. According to him, Boryspil can meet with losses in the sum of 77 million of dollars in the result of Ryanair's ultimatum.
The Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Volodymyr Omelyan claimed that the management of Boryspil intentionally crumbed the deal with Ryanair. Later on, Lviv airport signed its own deal with Ryanair.
