Ryanair has been ordered by a French court to pay €8 million ($10.8 million) in fines and damages for breaching the country's labour laws.

A court in Aix-en-Provence today found Ryanair guilty of not paying social insurance and state pension contributions for staff who operated flights at Marseille between 2007 and 2010.

The Irish budget carrier says it will appeal the verdict on the basis that its employees paid their taxes and pension contributions in Ireland in full compliance with Irish and EU regulations.
