The claim to the Ministry we are talking about 20 million hryvnias of losses, because the Irish company, the company began to sell tickets violations – not having any agreements.

In MAU say that it is not against the arrival of this company, but only for healthy concurrecy, because they themselves are already actively using the low-cost model. Meantime, sure, the main reason the Irish carrier’s refusal to fly to Ukraine is an attempt to get yourself the best terms and the best airports. But if the Ukrainian market is really interesting, the carrier will fly and other conditions.
