Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Volodymyr Omelian expects that the Ryanair low-cost company is likely to announce cancellation of flights to Ukraine on Monday, July 10. The minister has written this on Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports. The minister also responded to the statement by Director General of the Boryspil International Airport Pavlo Riabikin accusing the authorities of exerting political pressure on the airport with the aim to sign the agreement with the Ryanair low-cost company. "Speaking of the alleged political pressure: the President of Ukraine, Prime Minister and minister, political parties call for presence of low-cost companies in Ukraine. They support Ukrainians' ability to fly at lower cost. In fact that is what our people want too. It's all because the visa waiver is a great step for our state. However, without low-cost companies the essence of that step is illusive. What kind of pressure was that about? Which is it in fact, "pressure" of the state or open blackmailing of the airport?" the minister said. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Director General of the Boryspil International Airport Pavlo Riabikin accuses the Ryanair low-cost company of political pressure on the airport aiming to sign the contract. Director General of the Boryspil International Airport Pavlo Riabikin announced signing of the agreement with Ryanair. In mid-March, Ryanair announced it will start flights from Kyiv to Eindhoven, London, Manchester and Stockholm from October 2017.
