The Irish Independent has reported that Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe is considering a draft version of a report compiled on the potential sale of the government’s stake in Aer Lingus to IAG.

Kavanagh described IAG’s €1.4bn offer as the “ultimate compliment” for the business and that he was not frustrated by the delay in the government’s decision.
