A Ryanair boss has criticised airports for not recruiting enough staff to cater for the rebound in travellers, saying they had "had one job to do to".

Neil Sorahan, chief financial officer, said "various governments" and airports needed to be held to account for "not staffing up appropriately".

His comments come as staff shortages at airports have led to major disruption and cancellations in recent months.

Airports said they had been recruiting security staff since late last year.

A spokesperson for the Airport Operators Association (AOA), which represents most UK airports ranging from Heathrow to Edinburgh, said: "The vast majority of passengers across the UK are now getting away on their holidays with no or minimal disruption."

The spokesperson added that it was "essential" the industry worked together to fill the remaining vacancies, including for ground handling staff.
