Ryanair cancels planned Ukraine services

Staff Writer | July 11, 2017
Ryanair announced that it has cancelled its planned entry into Ukraine following Kiev airport’s failure to honour a growth agreement reached at the Ministry of Infrastructure with airport officials and the current Airport Director General, pavlo Riabikin, in March of this year.
Ryanair Ukraine
Air travel   4 new Kiev routes and 7 new Lviv routes
Kiev airport has instead chosen to protect high fare airlines (including Ukraine International Airlines), Ryanair said and deprive Ukrainian consumers/visitors access to Europe’s lowest air fares and widest route network.

As a result, Ryanair has no choice, the company said, but to cancel 4 new Kiev routes and 7 new Lviv routes, which will result in the loss of over 500,000 passengers and 400 jobs.

Ryanair sincerely apologises to the many customers who have booked low fare flights to/from the Ukraine, all of whom will be contacted by email and refunded for their cancelled flights.

Ryanair will now transfer this capacity to competing markets, such as Germany, Israel and Poland instead.
