"Every previous government or the Minister tried to have negotiations with Ryanair, however today we have reached the level of negotiations in which the offer as well as the subject of negotiations is both interesting and acceptable. Thus, the chances are quite high for Ryanair to to enter Georgian market and to form the agreement with the most low-cost company in the nearest future.
