Ryanair expects to operate a fifth fewer flights in September and October. Due to the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the coronavirus, the number of bookings at the airline is lagging behind. Particularly in the last few weeks, when the coronavirus re-emerged in many countries and regions, there has been a relapse.
According to Ryanair, the reduction of flight movements will mainly affect the frequency of flights, rather than the elimination of routes. These include flights to holiday countries such as France and Spain, where more stringent travel rules apply in different regions. But Sweden too, where additional travel restrictions apply, may have to do with fewer flights.
There may also be fewer flights to Ireland, which is not yet subject to restrictions. Travellers from most EU countries travelling to Ireland must be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival.
