IRISH LOW-COSTER RYANAIR TRANSPORTS 500,000 PASSENGERS FROM AND TO KYIV’S BORYSPIL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT SINCE SEPT 2018

Irish-registered low-cost airline Ryanair (Dublin) transported 500,000 passengers from and to Kyiv’s Boryspil international airport since September 2018 and plans to double this figure until the end of 2019. This was announced by Olga Pawlonka, Ryanair’s international communications manager during the welcoming ceremony of the 500,000th passenger at Boryspil on Friday, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent said.
“We are developing at a very fast pace in Ukraine. We are thinking about opening directions from all cities of Ukraine. From winter there will be two new routes from Kharkiv, five new ones from Odesa. From the end of October, we will launch seven new routes from Kyiv. Now there are 17 routes from Kyiv , but from winter their number will be 24,” she noted. At the same time, answering a question about the possible opening of a representative office in Ukraine, Pawlonka said that this was impossible. “As Ryanair is a low-cost company, there is only one office in Dublin, from which operations around the world are handled. That is why it is impossible. This is impossible without value increase,” she explained.
As reported, Ryanair in May 2019 launched the Ukrainian version of its official website.

RYANAIR COULD START FLYING FROM KHARKIV INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN 2019

The Kharkiv international airport is holding the negotiations with Ireland’s low cost airline Ryanair on the launch of flights to Germany, Poland and the Mediterranean countries, Commercial Director of the airport Vladyslav Illin has said in an interview with the V Otpusk publication. “Regarding negotiations with Ryanair, the priority is to start flights to Germany and Poland. Kharkiv, as a market for new destinations, is somewhat similar to Kyiv and to some extent to Lviv in terms of business and family ties with these countries,” he said.
Also, according to Illin, among the countries where Ryanair could fly from Kharkiv, apart from Germany and Poland, I would like to see the Baltic states.
“I think that there is a great potential for the development of flights to Lithuania and Latvia. Passengers from Kharkiv fly less to Estonia. We also discuss flights to the Mediterranean countries with Ryanair. But these plans can only be realized from summer 2020. Indeed, flights to Germany and Poland are less subject to seasonality, “- he said.
At the same time, Illin said that the chance that Ryanair will fly from Kharkiv in the summer time is not great, since almost all aircraft have already used in loading the summer schedule of the airline.
Also, according to the commercial director of the Kharkiv airport, this year the Hungarian low-cost Wizz Air also plans to open new destinations from Kharkiv.
“Also, as in the case of Ryanair, we are discussing with Wizz Air, first of all, the opening of new flights to Germany. In general, in negotiations with Ryanair and Wizz Air, we consider it a priority to open new flights to Germany,” he said.
