Le Figaro claim French Ryanair crew not paying taxes as required by EU law

French crew from Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are allegedly not fully paying tax, social insurance and pension contributions as required by EU law according to the French newspaper Le Figaro.

Ryanair are whinging that the claims are completely false and have notified crews that it will close the Marseille base in November if challenged by the Aix-en-Provence prosecutor.

Michael O’Leary moaned “We are not prepared to have our good name and reputation damaged by these unattributed leaks in the French media or by an unjustified ongoing investigation.

If the French authorities don’t want us to invest in bases and jobs at regional airports, then we will simply move those aircraft and jobs elsewhere.”
