Vardakar hints at sale of state's stake in Aer Lingus

The State may still sell off its stake in Aer Lingus if the price is right.

That is according to the Transport Minister, Leo Varadkar, who said that the government's shares will not be sold for a quick buck.

Minister Varadkar has ruled out any immediate sale of the shares, which are worth around €180m.
