Irish airline Ryanair must pay at least four million euros to cover social security for employees working at Orio al Serio airport in Bergamo, Italy. This decision was made by the Court of Justice of the European Union. Euronews television channel .

The case has been pending for many years. We are talking about 219 cases. The audit showed that for dozens of employees, Ryanair failed to transfer payments to Italian social funds, including pensions. At the same time, Ryanair claims to comply with EU rules and payments have been made to Irish insurance companies. However, the court did not receive evidence of deductions from Irish funds for all claimants.

Following an investigation, the Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled that Ryanair employees who are on duty at Bergamo airport for 45 minutes and who are in flight the rest of the time on board Ryanair aircraft are subject to Italian social security legislation.

The court’s verdict could be costly for Europe’s biggest low-cost airline.
