MADRID, June 27 (UPI) -- Discount airline Ryanair has accused a Spanish consumer association of defamation and plans to take the group to court, officials said.

Ryanair Chief Executive Officer Michael O'Leary accused Spanish consumer association Consumers in Action of claiming the airline has abused and taken advantage of its customers, Europa Press reported Monday.

O'Leary said he plans to seek a court order against the organization if it does not remove all comments about Ryanair from its Web sites and social network pages.

The airline, based in Ireland, claims the group has slandered and harmed its public image.

The organization is reported to have used expressions against the low-cost airline such as "multimillion-euro frauds" and "abuse suffered by passengers" on its Web site.
