Yanair airline plans that fares for flights from Zhytomyr to be 30% cheaper than from Kyiv in future
Yanair airline hopes that when the Zhytomyr airport becomes fully operational the cost of air tickets will be 25-30% lower than at airports in Kyiv.
An Interfax-Ukraine correspondent has reported that the owner of Yanair airline that invests in the airport, Oleksiy Yanchuk, gave this information in Zhytomyr last week.
"According to our estimates, flights from here could be 25-30% cheaper as it would not have large staff as in Kyiv airports, the land tax is considerably lower here and expenses will be lower," he said.
Zhytomyr Mayor Serhiy Sukhomlyn said that the airport would have the departure and landing fee three times lower than Kyiv's airports have.
"I also hope that jet fuel will be cheaper here, as we plan to obtain a certificate and have a cheap refueling and authorities agree to this," Yanchuk said.
