Councillors to vent concerns at move on Aer Lingus

The IAG bid to takeover Aer Lingus will be the subject of debate at Áras Contae on Chláir on Monday afternoon next.

A special meeting of Clare County Council has been called, at which much of the discussion will focus on how any takeover of Aer Lingus might impact on Shannon, and the need, in any circumstances, to protect the airport’s access to the highly lucrative London Heathrow slots.

It is expected that the meeting will adopt a resolution calling the Government to stoutly resists pressure to sell off it’s 25.1% take in Aer Lingus, which would scupper IAG’s takeover offer.

It has been made clear by Transport Minister, Paschal Donohoe that no “formal offer” has yet been made by IAG and the process is at an “early stage”.
