Ryanair to restore 40% of flights from July

Written by:
Ryanair has said it plans to restore 40% of flights from 1 July but will implement measures to limit the spread of Covid 19, including compulsory face masks for passengers and crew and temperature checks.

The budget airline said the plans were “subject to government restrictions on intra-EU flights being lifted, and effective public health measures being put in place at airports”.

It said it will operate a daily flight schedule of almost 1,000 flights, restoring 90% of its pre-Covid-19 route network.

The airline has been operating a skeleton service since flight restrictions were implemented in mid-March.

Ryanair chief executive Eddie Wilson said: “It is important for our customers and our people that we return to some normal schedules from 1 July onwards.

“Governments around Europe have implemented a 4 month lockdown to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus. After 4 months, it is time to get Europe flying again  so we can reunite friends and families, allow people to return to work, and restart Europe’s tourism industry, which provides so many millions of jobs.”

When services are restored, Ryanair said it would encourage passengers to observe effective health measures including:

-fewer checked bags

-check in online

-downloading boarding pass to the passenger smart phone

-temperature checks at airport entry

-wearing face masks/coverings at all times in the terminal and on board aircraft.

On board its aircraft, Ryanair cabin crew will wear face masks/coverings and a limited inflight service will be offered of pre-packaged snacks and drinks.

All onboard transactions will be cashless.

Passengers will not be allowed to queue for toilets.
