Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary got paid  nearly €3.26 million last year.

The amount was included in the company’s annual report, according to thejournal.ie.

Michael is now at the top of the wages list for European airline bosses after his earnings increased nearly €100,000 since 2016.

According to the site, the wages increase comes from an increase in “his performance-related bonus”, which went from €855,000 in 2016 to €950,000.
