Ryanair is preparing to ground its entire fleet as travel restrictions and bans owing to the coronavirus continue to impact its operations.
Group-wide schedules will be cut by more than 80% over the next six days (18 March through 24 March) before “most, if not all” flights are grounded.
“Over the past few days, the spread of Covid-19 has led most EU governments to impose severe travel bans and restrictions... causing widespread cancellations and travel disruptions across the network,” said Ryanair in a statement.
“We advise customers considering travelling that all government travel restrictions must be followed. We encourage customers to check relevant local guidelines issued by their government before they travel.”
