Ryanair Keen to Sell Aer Lingus Stake as IAG Considers Fresh Bid

Ryanair Holdings Plc remains keen to sell its stake in Aer Lingus Group Plc, though it has not been approached by British Airways owner IAG SA, which is mulling a higher offer for the Irish carrier.

“We’ve been actively looking for people to make an offer,” Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said at a press conference in Dublin today. Aer Lingus “will need a partner,” he said. “Something has to happen -- be that IAG or someone else - to keep growing.”
