Ryanair says it has received an apology from the Belfast Telegraph newspaper over claims made about its fuel policy.

The newspaper was among several media outlets against which Ryanair launched legal proceedings following a TV documentary aired last week.

The airline says it will now drop its legal action against the Belfast Telegraph, but will continue its cases against Channel 4 and two other newspapers.

In a statement, the comppany said "Ryanair will not allow any newspaper (or group of non-Ryanair pilots) to defame our industry leading 29-year safety, or to impugn the 9,000 aviation professionals whose commitment to safety here in Ryanair on every flight, every day, is absolute.”"

The cases relate to allegations made about Ryanair's fuel policy.
