    Today, September 3, 2018, Ryanair commenced its first flight to Ukraine. Volodymyr Omelyan, the Minister of  Infrastructure of Ukraine and Pavlo Ryabikin, CEO of Boryspil  International Airport took part in the ceremony.

    Ukraine became the 37th country in which the airline Ryanair operates.

    Ryanair  starts its operation in Ukraine with the launch of its new four times  weekly Kyiv Boryspil flight to/from Berlin Schönefeld Airport.

    The  flight Kyiv-Berlin has been launched 2 months earlier than originally scheduled  due to high passenger demand. This is one of the twelve routes that the  airline will carry out in the autumn-winter period 2018 from/to Kyiv.

    Volodymyr  Omelyan, the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine congratulated  Ukraine on the commencement of Ryanair's start of flights: “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. The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko opens Europe for Ukrainians  through a visa-free regime. We, President, the Government, the Ministry  of Infrastructure, make every effort  to ensure that every  Ukrainian may travel across Europe freely. Due to high passenger demand,  the flight starts operation2 months earlier than planned. This is the best  evidence that we do the right thing by uniting Ukrainee and  international business. I wish Ryanair successful operations in Ukraine,  as well as interesting and affordable travels for our citizens.”
