Amendments to Infrastructure Ministry order No. 337 cutting the base aviation fee from $17 to $13 have been adopted, Director General of Boryspil International Airport Pavlo Riabikin has said.
“What does it mean? All airlines flying from the Boryspil airport would receive a decreased fee for passenger servicing from June 20. Ryanair airline will receive $7.5 asked by them for new destinations for the Boryspil airport. The airport will meet the target to reduce revenue to 8% in the second half of this year, while it would receive a trigger to boost passenger flow in the medium-term outlook,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
Riabikin said that the reduction of the passenger servicing fee along with the discount program of the airport would stimulate airlines to fly more, carry more, open new destinations and cut the prices of tickets.
“Finally passengers would win,” he said. (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
