All of the team at Ryanair are working hard to provide repatriation and rescue flights for many EU Governments. Ryanair is also offering aircraft for emergency medical flights, including to/from China. Its pilots, engineers and other airline professionals will keep trying to assist EU Governments where they can through this Covid-19 crisis.
As most EU countries have imposed flight bans or other restrictions, over 90% of Ryanair’s aircraft will be grounded for the coming weeks. Ryanair will comply with these restrictions at all times. Its staff are all working with EU Governments to try to keep some minimum flight links open for emergency reasons, even though the passenger loads on these flights will be very low.
For the next week (Fri 27 Mar to Thur 2 Apr), Ryanair will operate daily or weekly flights on the following routes; (all flight info details are on our website at www.ryanair.com).
|To/From Ireland||To/From the UK|
|Dublin – London (STN)||London (STN) – Dublin|
|Dublin – London (GAT)||London (GAT) – Dublin|
|Dublin – Birmingham||Birmingham – Dublin|
|Dublin – Bristol||Edinburgh – Dublin|
|Dublin – Edinburgh||Bristol – Dublin|
|Dublin – Glasgow||Glasgow – Dublin|
|Dublin – Manchester||Manchester – Dublin|
|Dublin – Amsterdam||London (STN) – Eindhoven|
|Dublin – Brussels||London (STN) – Lisbon|
|Dublin – Berlin||London (STN) – Cork|
|Dublin – Lisbon||London (STN) – Berlin|
|Dublin – Cologne||London (STN) – Budapest|
|Cork – London (STN)|
All these aircraft are disinfected daily; with low loads, social distancing will be optimised on-board, and Ryanair asks all passengers to cooperate fully with the crews who are doing their best in difficult times to maintain vital links to/from Ireland and to/from the UK to facilitate passengers and their families to deal with emergencies that may require urgent travel over the coming days and weeks.
Ryanair apologises sincerely for the unprecedented grounding of our aircraft fleet, and any schedule disruptions this may have caused, but we must all work together with EU Governments to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on citizens and health services
