Low-cost airline Ryanair is cutting more costs – by banning its staff from charging their mobile phones at work.
The company’s staff, who already have to buy their own uniform, will have to charge their phones before they leave for work to save the firm a few pence per employee.
A Ryanair spokeswoman said the company did not believe using a mobile phone charger at work was acceptable.
“The cost may not be expensive but every penny saved counts and all savings go towards lowering fares for European consumers,” she said.
The airline said the ban on mobile phone charging did not originate with its controversial chief executive Michael O’Leary and insisted that staff at the head office in Ireland had not been upset by the ban.
