It marks something of an endorsement for the ailing airline, coming as Ryanair has moved closer to resolving disputes with its workforce - a deal was reached with Irish pilots last week (albeit it has yet to be voted through by the union) – and as the airline’s shares are down some 30% for the past year.

This morning, Ryanair shares were up 40 cents or 2.85% to trade at €14.28.
