Public servants will not fly Ryanair
The mayor of Copenhagen banned all 45,000 of the city’s officials from using Ryanair flights for official business. He stated that the city requires all of those who deliver services to the municipality, including those who would sell plane tickets, to offer their employees proper salaries and working conditions. These rules mean that the local government cannot enter contracts or buy goods from suppliers that do not pay proper salaries. As a consequence of this policy the city will ban on flying Ryanair. The company has asked the EU Commission to investigate what it calls ‘unlawful travel bans that constitute a breach of Ryanair’s freedoms’.

Dacia claims salaries being too high
Car manufacturer Dacia, owned by French manufacturer Renault, has said it will have to moderate wages, shed jobs and increase automation in order to remain competitive. The car manufacturer, which recently opened a factory in Egypt, said that Romanian wages are too high, ignoring that labour costs are amongst the lowest in the EU. Dacia has been one of Renault’s bestselling brands, driving much of the company’s growth in recent years.
