LONDON (Reuters) - British carrier easyJet (EZJ.L) has expressed an interest in collapsed airline Aigle Azur’s operations at Paris Orly airport, a spokesman said on Monday.

The airline filed for bankruptcy and suspended flights last week, leaving 19,000 of passengers stranded.

A French minister named Air France-KLM as a likely bidder for the airline on Monday, but the carrier had no immediate comment on whether it had submitted an offer for all or part of Aigle Azur as a midday court deadline passed.
