Ryanair resumes flying after a period of stop and from the first of July will provide a thousand daily flights.
The Ryanair airline returns to fly again after a stop of 4 months : the company announces 1.000 flights per day from 1st July. Strating from July 1, Ryanair will restore 1,000 flights a day. It is covering 90% of its normal route. But you should wear face masks if want to fly with Ryanair. The airline would be back up to 40% of its normal flight schedule from Wednesday, July 1, 2020. In order to run smoothly, Ryanair should subject to Governments rules on intra-EU flights and public health measures in airports.
That will see it operate almost 1,000 flights a day, covering restoring 90% of its pre-Covid-19 routes. Ryanair chief executive Eddie Wilson spoke about it. “After 4 months, it is time to get Europe flying again so we can reunite friends and families. We can allow people to return to work, and restart Europe’s tourism industry, which provides so many millions of jobs.”

Ryanair returns to fly : the airline resumes after the stop
He also added that with more than 6 weeks to go to 1 July, Ryanair believes this is the most practical date to resume normal flight schedules. But also to allow those tourism based economies such as Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, France and others. This to recover what is left of this year’s tourism season. However there are some changing rules so passengers can safe flying as possible.
Start from before you fly, there will be fewer checked bags, check in online, downloading boarding pass to the passenger smart phone. Also, temperature checks at airport entry, also wearing face masks/coverings at all times in the terminal and on board aircraft. For changes during the flights, such as: cabin crew will wear face masks/coverings. Also limited inflight service will be offered of pre-packaged snacks and drinks.
But also no cash sales and queuing for toilets banned (access available on request). Ryanair also encouraged passengers to regularly wash their hands and use hand sanitizers in airport terminals. Ryanair added its aircraft use HEPA air filters (similar to those used in critical hospital wards). All aircraft interior surfaces are disinfected every night with chemicals, which are effective for over 24 hours.
The airline will also require all passengers flying in July and August to fill in details (at the point of check in) of how long their planned visit will be. But also their address while visiting another EU country. This contact information will be provided to EU Governments to help them to monitor any isolation regulations they require of visitors on intra-EU flights.
It is excellent news for tourism and for the revitalization of the economy. The risk was that Ryanair would suffer the same fate as less strong companies. Instead the company offers more flights than ever and numerous routes for the summer. A further step to return to normal.
