A member of Ryanair board Juliusz Komorek has confirmed plans earlier announced by Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan to launch flights from Ukraine in autumn.
“This is a real date. I hope this happens,” he said, adding that changes would be made to the routes announced last year.
Earlier Omelyan said that Ukraine was in the final stage of negotiations with Ireland’s low cost airline Ryanair.
As reported, on July 10, 2017, Ryanair announced the cancellation of its planned flights to Ukraine after Boryspil airport had violated the agreement achieved at the Infrastructure Ministry with the airport officials and its incumbent CEO Pavlo Riabikin in March 2017.
Two days later, on July 12, 2017 after a special meeting with the leadership of the Infrastructure Ministry, the Justice Ministry, Boryspil airport, the Airports of Ukraine Association, and the Ukraine Investment Promotion Office, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman instructed the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to evaluate the negotiation process on Ryanair flights to Ukraine and stated the need to resume these negotiations.
