An appeals panel has told the aviation regulator it needs to reconsider how fast Dublin Airport can cut costs to bring down the level of airport charges.
It follows a ruling on airport charges last year which required a cut of 11 per cent by 2024.
The appeals board rejected all points of appeal except one by Ryanair, finding that the Commission on Aviation failed to investigate whether the DAA could reduce costs faster than four years.
The Commission on Aviation Regulation has accepted the ruling, but says the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the aviation sector means the price cap it set last year can't stand.
