    Ryanair, responding to the EU Court’s rulings on French and Swedish State aid schemes, announced (17-Feb-2021) plans to refer the matters to the Court of Justice of the EURyanair stated: “We have no rich and powerful ‘home country’ to subsidise us in times of trouble. Nor do we want discriminatory aid”. Ryanair added: “We hope that the Court of Justice will overturn the European Commission‘s approvals of the French and Swedish schemes, to give airlines and consumers a glimmer of hope that national politicians obsessed with their flag carriers will be sent back to the drawing board and required to use State aid wisely to assist the recovery of traffic in the post-COVID world instead of bailing out their favoured airline at the expense of fair competition and consumers”.
