Good progress in talks with Ryanair, issue removed from public discussion
Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan has said that there is a good progress in negotiations with Ireland's low cost airline Ryanair regarding its entrance the Ukrainian market, but the issue has been removed from the public discussion.
"Now the issue of Ryanair has been removed from the public discussion. However, the work is going on. Progress is good. I believe that they will fly to Ukraine," the minister said on Channel 5 TV.
Omelyan said that he expects that several more airlines will appear in Ukraine in the coming year.
As reported, Ryanair on July 10, 2017 cancelled its planned entry into Ukraine following Kyiv airport's failure to honor a growth agreement reached at the Ministry of Infrastructure with airport officials.
On July 12, Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman ordered National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) involvement in assessing the negotiation process with Ryanair about flights to Ukraine and stated the need to resume these talks.
