Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan says Europe`s largest low-cost air carrier, Ryanair, has decided to enter the Ukrainian market, according to the minister`s Facebook page.
Omelyan also announced his joint press conference with Ryanair`s Chief Commercial Officer, scheduled on March 15.
”On March 15, a joint press conference with Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan and Chief Commercial Officer of Ryanair David O`Brien will be held in Kyiv,” he posted on Facebook.
On the same day, a press conference with Mr Omelyan, Mr O`Brien, and management of Lviv international airport is expected to be held in the city of Lviv.
Earlier, Volodymyr Omelyan said that a new low-cost air carrier would begin flights from Lviv international airport in the autumn of 2017. However, he refused to specify the carrier`s name citing commercial agreements.
Notably, Ukraine has been actively discussing the entry of European largest low-cost carrier Ryanair into its market since 2015.
In the end of 2016, the Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Yevhen Kravtsov confirmed that the details of talks were not disclosed upon request by Ryanair.
