PARIS, July 12, 2007 (AFP) - France's highest court on Wednesday ruled that local labour laws applies to Ryanair and easyJet cabin staff based in France, the civil aviation authority DGAC said.

The Conseil d'Etat rejected a claim by both low-cost airlines that their cabin staff worked for company headquarters outside France and were therefore not subject to French law.

The court said the operating base of staff was located "where employees work, where they begin their service and to where they return once their mission is accomplished".

British airline easyJet said it had already started conforming to French labour law, but Irish carrier Ryanair said it would take the case to the European Court of Justice.
