Ryanair has announced a plan to restore 40% of its flight schedule from July 1, but it won’t be common for travelers.
Subject to the lifting of government restrictions on intra-EU flights, the plan will include a number of new public health measures to reduce the risk of transfer.
Crew and passengers must wear face masks or face masks when traveling and pass temperature controls.
Queuing for toilets is prohibited, but “toilet access will be made available to individual passengers upon request,” the airline said.
The airline continues to sell drinks on board, but this is limited to pre-packaged items.
All sales are also cashless.
Ryanair said that all surfaces in the cabins are disinfected every night with chemicals that are effective for more than 24 hours.
The airline also requires all passengers flying in July and August to fill out a form at check-in, specifying how long their visit will be and where they will be staying.
This information will be provided to EU governments to “help them monitor the isolation rules they require from visitors on flights within the EU”.
Eddie Wilson, Ryanair CEO: “It is important for our customers and our people that we return to a normal schedule from July 1.
“Governments across Europe have introduced a four-month block to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
“After four months, it’s time to get Europe back on the air, so we can reunite friends and families, get people back to work, and get the European tourism industry, which provides so many millions of jobs, back on track.”
The airline hopes to operate 1,000 flights a day, restoring 90% of its pre-Covid-19 route network.
