Ryanair

Europe’s largest low-cost carrier (LCC) Ryanair intends to operate a daily schedule of almost 1,000 flights from 1 July with service from “most” of its 80 bases across the continent.

Since mid-March when lockdown restrictions were imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19, the Irish airline has been operating about 30 flights per day. However, its planned schedules from July would restore 90% of its pre-coronavirus route network and 40% of capacity.

The carrier added there would be fewer daily and weekly frequencies on trunk routes as it works to restore some service on the widest number of routes, rather than operating high frequency services on a small number.

Ryanair said the plans are subject to government restrictions on flights within the EU being lifted and “effective public health measures” being put in place at airports.

Crew and passengers will be required to wear face masks and pass temperature checks, while social distancing will be “encouraged.” Queuing for toilets will also be prohibited on board but passengers can request access.

Making for him what these days is a rare appearance on TV Michael O’Leary was emphatic that the seating arrangements would be as normal.  “We can’t work as an airline,” he said.  “We need to fill the planes up.  Passengers and crew will wear face masks.”
