Ukraine's Infrastructure Ministry to establish favourable conditions for low-cost airlinesUkraine's Infrastructure Ministry is working on a program to stimulate the arrival of low-cost airlines to the country, foreseeing the provision of benefits to them, Minister Volodymyr Omelyan has said.

"We’re working on a program to additionally pay to low-cost airlines, or to provide them with benefits," he said at a meeting with members of the European Business Association (EBA) in Kyiv.

The minister said that talks with these European airlines showed that they are currently not ready to come to Ukraine.

Omelyan said that among key obstacles is the absence of an agreement on Open Skies with the EU and the administrative restriction policy conducted by the National Bank of Ukraine.

He added that Ukrainian cities, particularly Lviv, threw cold water on the proposal to pay to low-cost airlines extra to organize flights.
