Following Michael O’Learys recent comments about the unrealistic ideas of temperature checks at airports and leaving the middle seats empty on flights, a recent report from The Independent has suggested that Ryanair want to resume 40% of flights from July as long as passengers wear masks.

The report suggests that in order to kick-start sales, the airline is offering fares of £43 from Manchester to Faro in Portugal on 28 June and £45 from Edinburgh to Rome on 1 July.

“Don’t stay at home. Go on holiday. But don’t queue for the loo.”

That is the effective message from Ryanair, which is planning to re-start 40% of its planned network for the main summer months although the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has advised that anyone that leaves the country will be required to self-isolate for 14 days but few details have emerged, including the start date.

At present, Europe’s biggest budget airline is running a skeleton service of just 30 flights a day, concentrated on connecting Ireland and the UK.

What will I have to do if I fly?

Passengers returning to the familiar fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft will find some big differences. They will be expected to wear face coverings while passing through the airport and on the aircraft.

Cabin crew, wearing face masks, will make inflight sales only with contactless payments, and passengers will not be permitted to line up for the toilet.
