Irish low-cost airline began to cancel flights scheduled for July 2020 to the UK, Spain, and Portugal, writes corkbeo.ie.
Earlier, Ryanair announced the resumption of 40% of its flights from July 1, 2020. The gradual return of the airline depends on the restrictions that will exist in different countries by the time the flights begin.
Later, airline boss Michael O’Leary called “stupid” the quarantine requirements imposed at airports in Ireland and Britain for arrivals from abroad.
It is expected that Ryanair will restore air service between 80 European airports, but the frequency of flights will be reduced.
The company also published information on sanitary procedures and measures that will be taken to counter the spread of infection.
Earlier, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) approved the wearing of masks on board but did not support the idea of blocking seats between passengers. Also, all passengers will be required to undergo medical control at the airport. And toilets on board aircraft will open in case of emergency.
The ventilation system of Ryanair aircraft is equipped with additional filters, such as those used in hospitals. Passengers will need to independently verify the rules of entry into the country of destination.
