Ryanair Ceases Flights for the Next Two Months

Ryanair, Europe’s biggest budget airline, has announced that it will ground the majority of its flights from the 24th of March, and that this suspension will continue into April and May this year. For now, the budget carrier will maintain its operations for rescue flights only, to return stranded passengers to their home country, as well as essential flights for the movement of medicines, protective equipment and food supplies.

In a statement by Michael O’Leary, the CEO of Ryanair referred to the uncertainty of the immediate future, but said that for the meantime the Ryanair Group of Airlines (including Buzz, Lauda, and Malta Air) “will do everything that we can to support our Governments, our people, and our customers during these unprecedented times.” The statement also mentioned that passengers affected by the flight suspensions will receive further communication through email over the next couple of weeks, detailing their options.

The move by Ryanair, and numerous other airlines, follows advice issued by the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) urging British travellers to return home and Singapore Airlines reducing their fleet to just 9 planes.
