Italian low-cost Ernest Airlines started to fly from the Zhuliany airport. The first plane of the airline landed in the Ukrainian capital on Saturday, December 9. This was reported by the airport’s press service.
In the future, flights to Milan (Bergamo) and Naples will be carried out three times a week.
“Just now the issue of Ryanair stopped being discussed, but the work is ongoing and the progress is good And I believe they will fly in Ukraine,” he said.
Ryanair canceled the planned entry to 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. Director General of Boryspil airport Pavlo Ryabikin accused Ryanair of political pressure to sign the contract. According to him, Boryspil might face $77 million losses due to the requirements Ryanair makes.
Later on, Boryspil renewed negotiations with Ryanair, this time with the Minister of Infrastructure participating in the discussion.
