    Ryanair is facing an investigation by aviation authorities in Ireland and Spain following accusations that the airline is “courting disaster” by flying with near-empty fuel tanks in a bid to cut costs.

    On Sunday, a flight from Paris to Tenerife was diverted to Madrid due to a technical issue; on Saturday, a Ryanair flight was diverted to El Prat airport in Barcelona because of an engine fault; and on July 26 three Ryanair aircraft were forced to make emergency landings in Valencia after drawing near to their minimum legal level of fuel. EU rules require commercial aircraft to carry sufficient fuel to cope with various contingencies - such as unexpected delays or re-routing to other airports.
