Ryanair Holdings Plc

Ryanair Makes Formal Complaint to Takeover Pane...


Ryanair Holdings PLC today (Wednesday, 7th Jan 2009) stated that Aer
Lingus' claims in recent media statements and in their stock exchange
announcement issued today that the Ryanair's offer "ignores the
substantial competition issues and is therefore not capable of
completion" are completely false.  Ryanair believes that these false
claims are also in breach of Takeover Rules and has today lodged a
formal complaint with the Takeover Panel.

Commenting on these false claims Ryanair's, CEO Michael O'Leary said:

"Contrary to Aer Lingus' false claims there is no prohibition in
place on the current offer, a point that was clearly addressed by the
European Commission in June 2007 when Commissioner Kroes stated "the
European Commission does not rule out a future merger between Ryanair
Holdings plc and Aer Lingus Group plc under the right conditions".

"The reality is that the new Ryanair Offer is capable of completion,
and Aer Lingus' claims to the contrary are false and in breach of
Takeover Rules.  As a result, Ryanair has made a formal complaint to
the Takeover Panel in relation to these repeated breaches of the
Takeover Rules".
