Ryanair ditches Marseille base in row over pay | Reuters

(Reuters) - Irish airline Ryanair said on Wednesday it would close its only French base at Marseille Airport from January next year following a dispute with French authorities over how its workers are paid.

Europe's biggest low-cost carrier effectively treats the 200 pilots and cabin crew it has working in Marseille as Irish employees -- receiving their pay from Ireland and paying their tax and social insurance contributions to Ireland.

Should read: France ditches Ryanair.

As someone noted, how can Ryanair claim at the same time that (i) Marseilles will lose jobs and that (ii) it is perfectly legal to use Irish employment contracts. Or are the jobs counted twice?

You expect logic from Michael O'Leary?

No - just PR.
