Ryanair threatens to close operations at Marseille airport

RYANAIR has threatened to close its Marseille airport base, reduce its routes to the city and move all of its jobs out of France if it is prosecuted for employing French staff on Irish work contracts.

The budget airline has confirmed in a statement that its 120 staff at Marseille airport pay Irish tax and pension contributions instead of the French equivalents.

However it insists that this complies with EU laws because their workplace - the planes - are registered in Ireland and therefore count as "Irish territory".
