EU lies about low fare travel ban
RYANAIR ACCUSES EU COMMISSION OF LYING ABOUT ITS PROHIBITION ON BOOKINGS WITH LOW FARES AIRLINES
Ryanair today (23 Mar) rejected the European Commission’s denial that its staff are prohibited from booking tickets on low fare airlines. These reported denials are contradicted by written confirmations from the EU Commission itself and the EU’s travel manager (AMEX) that its contract:
“prevents AMEX from booking tickets with low cost airlines”
In what is a further example of the EU Commission's blatant discrimination against low fare airlines in general, and Ryanair in particular, the EU Commission has also refused to arrange transfers to/from Brussels Charleroi Airport, but confirms these to Brussels Zaventem Airport only.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“These false denials by unnamed commission spokesmen are flatly contradicted by written confirmations issued to Ryanair by the EU Commission and its travel agency AMEX.
At a time when the EU Commission is preaching austerity, perhaps it should lead by example and prohibit booking tickets on high fare, fuel surcharging flag carriers and require instead that its fat cat bureaucrats save time and EU taxpayers’ money by travelling with low fares airlines including Ryanair, easyjet and others, which are readily available to the EU Commission and its travel agency at the click of a mouse.
Ryanair will be holding a press conference in Brussels next Thursday to expose these latest lies by the European Commission which continues to discriminate against low fares airlines in general and Ryanair in particular.”
