Michael O’Leary has had enough of people checking out the accounts of the firm behind his private taxi service.
The airline chief has made the company unlimited, in a move that frees it from the obligation of having to file publicly available accounts every year with the Companies Office.
Mr O’Leary uses his personal taxi for trips between his home in Mullingar and Dublin Airport, where Ryanair has its head office. It lets him skip traffic snarls in the city by using bus lanes at any time of the day.
Taxis, bicycles and on-call emergency vehicles are the only other forms of transport allowed to use bus lanes when they are in force. Mr O’Leary acquired a taxi licence in 2003, sparking outrage in some quarters.
