BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Europe's biggest budget airline Ryanair RYA.I will challenge the European Commission's approval of German rival Lufthansa's LHAG.DE bailout, a senior Ryanair executive said on Thursday.
“It (Lufthansa) needs it as a war chest to fight off competition, it doesn’t need it to survive,” Juliusz Gomorek, Ryanair’s chief legal officer told reporters.
Ryanair has already appealed to the Luxembourg-based General Court against aid granted by France, Denmark and Sweden to airlines and cleared by EU competition enforcers.
