Newsline: Ukrainian Ambassador to Ireland Blasts Ryanair Over Ukraine Repatriation Flight Costs

The Ukrainian ambassador to Ireland, Larysa Gerasko, has criticized Irish airline Ryanair for high pricing on key refugee routes out of Poland. Gerasko said, “Ryanair raised the prices and it’s unfortunate, and I’m waiting for a meeting with the Minister for Transport of Ireland (Eamon Ryan).” (https://simpleflying.com/ukrainian-ambassador-blasts-ryanair-over-ukraine-repatriation-flight-costs/) Gerasko told a European Union Affairs Committee at Leinster House on Tuesday that she had written to the airline a week ago but hadn’t received a reply. Senator Sharon Keogan said that the price hikes were “unforgivable.” The ambassador welcomed the idea of arranging official charter flights suggested by Sinn Féin Deputy John Brady and also called for improved facilities and services for refugees arriving in Dublin, such as translators.
