“Mr. President, I know that your plans include an expansion of Ryanair’s presence [in Ukraine]. I suggest that Ryanair think about creating an IT hub in Ukraine, which we discussed with Mr. Minister [of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan} so that to increase the level of services that Ryanair aircraft can receive," said Poroshenko.
He noted that currently Ryanair operates flights from Boryspil to 12 destinations, from Lviv - to 5 destinations, and prices for low-cost flights are affordable for everyone.
“Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan told me that a ticket costs 5 euros, I visited the website and found it for 9.99 euros, which is higher but also not bad,” Poroshenko noted.
