The biggest low-cost airline in Europe Ryanair may announce the cancellation of flights to Ukraine today, July 10, as Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan informed on his Facebook page.
“I’m flying from ‘state’ airport Boryspil to Bucharest for Ukraine-Romanian negotiations. It’s most likely that today there will be an announcement that Ryanair cancels flights to Ukraine,” he wrote.
“We can say it just like that: we don’t want Ryanair, because the airport can’t build three additional departure gates and expand the baggage claim area for transit passengers,” he added.
In March Ryanair announced the decision to introduce flights from Kyiv to Eindhoven, London, Manchester and Stockholm starting October 2017.
Kyiv International Airport (Zhuliany) announced a suspension of the negotiations with Ryanair because the airline’s price demands were beyond the capabilities of the airport.
