“Ryanair is potentially ready, and other low-cost airlines are potentially ready, but Easy Jet – unlikely. This potentially means that they are to study and analyze. This is only economy and they are interested in the sums that can earn. Various conditions could be, and my task and the task of my deputies, the State Aviation Service is to at least contact them and say “welcome,” give their vision and on what conditions they are ready to enter, and we will see if we can provide any conditions to them,” he said.
