First, the Ministry of Infrastructure signed a Memorandum of understanding with the Irish carrier then promised ultra low rates for service. Subsequently, however, Boryspil said that the international carrier has requested too onerous conditions – foreigners even require a percentage of the sales of goods in the airport shops.
