Ryanair, which says it has lost £2m from cancelled flights, has written to the secretary of state for transport, asking him to immediately restore the security measures at Britain's airports to "normal" standards in "order to get Britain's airports and airlines moving again".
Ryanair also wanted passenger body searches to be reduced from the current one-in-two to the normal one-in-four to reduce pressure on security staff and eliminate queues and delays.
The Ryanair boss said he fully supported the government's action last Thursday in stepping up security, but argued that it was untenable to expect airports to do the job without help from the police and military.
