The Norwegian Air Traffic Agency reported on Tuesday that while it found no gross work environment abuse by Ryanair at Moss Airport in Rygge, the Irish budget carrier must submit more information and has until November to get its job contracts in line with Norwegian regulations. 

The agency (Luftfartstilsynet) said on Tuesday that Ryanair had until November 1st to ensure that employment contracts for its staff in Norway falls in line with laws governing working hours in Norway. If amendments are made before then, the airline will not risk a fine.

"We have asked the company to clarify some points regarding staff working hours and time off, and as long as this is in order, we don't have any reprimands concerning how Ryanair in Norway acts in regard to occupational health and safety," agency spokesman Bjørn Erlandsen told the Aftenposten newspaper. 

The Irish carrier found itself in hot water after complains were made about low wages paid to its Norway-based staff. The report presented on Tuesday did not, however, look at salaries.
