It is the last paragraph from the beginning of the negotiation process by Ryanair was the rejection of the arguments of the airport.
“In particular, we have insisted and continue to do it that the flights to London are unable to fall under the 80% discount, because in this area already operate flights British Airlines and the base carrier of the airport – MAU. In addition, the airport will not be able to fix the fee for passengers of the airline Ryanair at the level of $ 7.5, as it is dependent on ensuring and increasing passenger traffic on this direction.
