Ryanair will not cancel flights to and from Britain, despite the new quarantine measure that has been initiated. That is what CEO Michael O’Leary of the Irish airline says. From Monday, everyone who wants to enter the country must first be quarantined for two weeks after arrival. The measure is intended to prevent travelers from bringing the coronavirus to the country after being infected abroad.
The quarantine measure affects all international arrivals, including those from returning British. From July, Ryanair flies a thousand times daily to places such as Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece. According to O’Leary, the planes are full of British people who don’t care about the new rules. “They know it’s nonsense,” said O’Leary.
Ryanair, the largest budget airline in Europe, is considering filing a lawsuit against quarantine measures together with British Airways, among others. People who break the rules risk a fine of £ 1,000, about £ 1,117.
Ryanair shares were 0.1 percent lower in Dublin on Monday.
