Ukraine to resume talks with Ryanair - Groysman

Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said that Ukraine will resume the negotiation process with Irish low-cost airline Ryanair.

He wrote about this on Facebook.

Groysman said that he had held a special meeting with the leadership of the Finance Ministry, the Justice Ministry, Boryspil Airport, the Association of Airports of Ukraine and the Ukraine Investment Promotion Office due to the airline's refusal to enter the Ukrainian market.

"We have decided to resume the negotiation process with Ryanair by involving Director of the Investment Promotion Office Daniel Bilak, along with the Ukrainian Infrastructure Ministry and Boryspil Airport," Groysman said.

In addition, he said, it was also decided at the meeting to appeal to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and the Antimonopoly Committee to assess the entire course of talks with the participation of the Infrastructure Ministry and Boryspil Airport regarding compliance with the law and the conditions of competition.

Groysman also ordered the Infrastructure Ministry to speed up the drafting of a strategy for the development of the transport industry in airspace, as well as the drafting of a strategy for the development of Ukrainian airports, including with the involvement of low-cost airlines.

"All of our efforts should be focused on providing our citizens with all the conditions for free movement," Groysman said.

Ukrinform reported earlier that on July 10, the director general of the Boryspil Airport, Pavlo Riabikin, said at a specially convened press conference that the contract with Ryanair could not be signed for a number of reasons.
