Lions agreed to fulfill the promises of the Minister are private “Zhulyany” immediately refused. Boryspil hesitated, but in the end the Director said that can not meet the requirements Ryanair – free navigation, free registration desks in the terminals, free space for your home office and office for the sale of tickets and rights to build a hotel at the airport.

Experts insist that strategic mistakes from the beginning done by the profile Ministry. “All that the Minister entered into negotiations – it was a mistake. He offered the best that we have, for next to nothing,” – said the Lanetsky. “The Minister had no right to sign a Memorandum of understanding, had no right to promise exclusive terms that are not available to all carriers,” – said Bodnar.

Now the contract with Ryanair by the airport of the city of Lviv signed. Legally it has nothing to do with the negotiations with the “Borispol”, so the Irish must carry it out. It is possible that after signing they made marketing studies and realized that potential passengers in Ukraine is not enough to be profitable.
