Decision due soon on Aer Lingus

DEPARTMENT of Transport officials have been in direct contact with the European Commission ahead of the Government's long-awaited decision over its stake in Aer Lingus.

The communication between Minister Paschal Donohoe's officials and the commission centred on a number of issues, including the highly valuable Heathrow slots and certain routes currently operated by the airline.

The proposed takeover by the International Airlines Group (IAG) is now expected to be decided on by the Cabinet the week after next.
