Pavlo Riabikin, Boryspil International Airport State Enterprise CEO, said:
“We are glad to welcome Ryanair at Boryspil airport. We wish our partners passenger traffic growth, routes expansion and successful business development in Ukraine.”
Volodymyr Omelyan, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, said:
“I would like to congratulate all Ukrainians and Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, with the official launch of flights to Ukraine. Ryanair’s entry to Ukraine is one of the most important events for Ukraine’s airspace in the recent years. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko opens Europe for Ukrainians through a visa-free regime. We, President, the Government, the Ministry of Infrastructure, make every effort on our end to ensure that every Ukrainian may travel across Europe freely.
Today, we are welcoming the first flight from Berlin. Due to high passenger demand, the flight is operated 2 months earlier than planned. This is the best evidence that we do the right thing by uniting the Ukrainian State and international business. I wish Ryanair successful operations in Ukraine, as well as interesting and affordable travels for our citizens.”
