Stansted-based Ryanair to cut fares by 7%

Stansted-based airline Ryanair has revealed it plans to cut fares by 7% this year as annual profits soared.

The budget airline wants to reduce its prices in a bid to keep passengers flying despite concerns following terror attacks in Paris and Brussels.

The impact of the recent EgyptAir plane crash may further weaken the appetite for international travel over the coming months.

£959m
Ryanair's profits last year.

The cuts came as Ryanair posted profits after tax up 43% to £959 million in the year to March compared with a year ago.

The full-year to 2016 was a year in which we delivered significant traffic and profit growth in all four quarters.

England head coach Eddie Jones says he has no concerns over Dylan Hartley's fitness - despite him missing much of the second-half of the season with concussion.

The Northampton Saints hooker was knocked out in the Six Nations Grand Slam decider against France in March.

Hartley only returned for the Saints' final game of the campaign earlier this month, but Jones has faith that he will be fine to lead England in their upcoming tour of Australia.

I’m not concerned by his lack of rugby.

He trained very well in Brighton (at the training camp). He was one of our best performers so he’ll be able to play against Wales and will hopefully get 50 or 60 minutes then he’ll be right for the first Test.

– Eddie Jones, England Head Coach

England take on Wales at Twickenham next weekend before heading over to Australia in June.
