Ryanair had tried to fight against an investigation, arguing that it would undermine a separate probe by the European Commission. 

Aer Lingus welcomed the decision and said it was “a key milestone on the path toward Ryanair being required to divest its shareholding in Aer Lingus”.

Ryanair said it will ask the UK”s supreme court to hear another appeal.
