Denmark -Public servants will not fly Ryanair -May 27, 2015

Copenhagen Mayor bans using services from those who do not offer their employees proper salaries and working conditions.

The mayor of Copenhagen banned all 45,000 of the city's officials from using Ryanair flights for official business. He stated that the city requires all of those who deliver services to the municipality, including those who would sell plane tickets, to offer their employees proper salaries and working conditions. These rules mean that the local government cannot enter contracts or buy goods from suppliers that do not pay proper salaries. As a consequence of this policy the city will ban on flying Ryanair. The company has asked the EU Commission to investigate what it calls ‘unlawful travel bans that constitute a breach of Ryanair’s freedoms’.
