If 400 Ryanair personnel earn 25k on average, that's 10 million per annum into the local economy and rental fees to the airport for the hangers. If Ryanair need maintenance and passenger operations to make staying at PIK worthwhile you can see how the politicians might see a loss on the passenger side as a price worth paying.
