Leaders Council reports on Ryanair boss' letter to chancellor

The Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland reports that Ryanair chief Michael O’Leary has written to chancellor Sajid Javid threatening legal action over the government’s decision to rescue rival airline, Flybe.

O’Leary’s letter argues that the state help given to Flybe could be in breach of competition rules and that other airlines should have access to the same privileges.

O’Leary has asked the government to provide clarity on the extent of support being offered to Flybe, threatening legal action if it does not comply.

The letter labelled the Flybe rescue deal a “badly thought-out bailout of a chronically loss-making airline”.

The full story can be read on the Leaders Council website here.
