Ryanair to restore 40% of scheduled flights from 1 July – Passengers and crew to wear face masks and have temperature checked
https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/ryan ... e-checked/

Ryanair also released a return to flying video, encouraging passengers to observe effective health measures to limit the Covid-19 virus. These include fewer checked bags, check-in online, downloading boarding pass to the passenger smartphone, as well as undergoing temperature checks at airport entry and wearing face masks/coverings at all times in the terminal and onboard aircraft. All Ryanair aircraft are fitted with HEPA air filters (similar to those used in critical hospital wards) and all aircraft interior surfaces are disinfected every night with chemicals, which are effective for over 24 hours. While temperature checks and face masks/coverings are the cornerstone of this healthy return to service, social distancing at airports and onboard aircraft will be encouraged where it is possible.

Onboard its aircraft, Ryanair cabin crew will wear face masks/coverings and a limited inflight service will be offered of pre-packaged snacks and drinks, but no cash sales. All onboard transactions will be cashless. Queuing for toilets will also be prohibited onboard although toilet access will be made available to individual passengers upon request. Ryanair encourages passengers to regularly hand wash and use hand sanitizers in airport terminals.

As a temporary further public health measure, while EU States emerge from their respective Covid-19 lockdowns, Ryanair will require all passengers flying in July & Aug to fill in details (at the point of check-in) of how long their planned visit will be, and also their address while visiting another EU country, and 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.
A long statement from Ryanair's PR office, but contradicted by a passenger video from last week. Why should we believe that Ryanair will be cautious on corona, when they can't even do it today? See:

Buzz increased its fleet to 45 B737s and expanded outside Poland with new bases in Prague and Budapest.

Lauda has already abandoned plans to operate a base in Zadar for the Group. Failure to agree to meaningful cost reductions on 20 May 2020 will result in the Vienna A320 base being closed on 30 May with over 300 job losses.

Ryanair
now expects it first B737 MAX 200 in October 2020. The carrier is currently reviewing short-term growth plans and is in active negotiations with both Boeing and Lauda A320 lessors to reduce planned deliveries over the next 24 months.

Lauda obtains approval from the Austrian Chamber of Commerce for its new collective agreement. The Vida union now has to give its approval to secure the airline’s future.

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair, which recently accepted £600 million (€673 million) in funding from the Bank of England, today confirmed that it is proposing to make up to 336 pilots in the UK redundant. British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) issued a press release on these redundancies. Ryanair has also, in addition to the 336 redundancies, proposed 20% pay cuts and other reductions in terms and conditions saying it would dismiss and re-engage on the revised terms if agreement to the changes was not reached.

Brian Strutton, BALPA General Secretary, said “The hypocrisy of Ryanair taking £600m in support from the British Government which it previously said it did not want is hardly surprising and neither is their cavalier treatment of loyal staff. “The company is sitting on EUR4.1bn cash including this latest funding via the Bank of England, and its balance sheet is, in its own words, ‘one of the strongest in the industry’ yet it still wants to make redundancies and impose pay cuts. “Our question is what assurances did the UK Government get from Ryanair about its workers before the Bank of England handed out the cash? Funding an airline whose own state isn’t offering a penny, when that airline goes on to treat its own staff like this, beggars belief.”

So now we know that Ryanairs' "we don't need any state aid" was just a commercial statement to mislead the public "book with us, because contrary to all other airlines, we are financially safe". They are not.

Just after they cashed in a £600M / €673M loan from the Bank of England, they dismiss 336 pilots and they implement a lot of salary cuts. If Brussels Airlines would do the same, hell would brake loose here.

Lauda began withdrawing its A320s, with serials 3105, 3272, 3132, and 3259, headed to London Stansted Airport to be parked.

Lauda said it was closing down its Vienna base after failing to reach an agreement with unions on pay, and had already relocated many of its 15 planes to other bases.

Malta Air is planning layoffs, with 20% of staff being let go, around 20 pilot and around 40 flight attendant positions.

Ryanair France: all crew must accept a 10%-20% salary decrease for 5 years, or w'll do collective dismissals.

BFM tv: Le Syndicat national des pilotes de lignes (SNPL) a accepté la mise en place d’un accord de performance collective, dans l’attente "des jours meilleurs" et affirme avoir obtenu en contrepartie l’engagement de la compagnie de ne pas licencier... En revanche, le Syndicat National du Personnel Navigant Commercial - Force ouvrière (SNPNC-FO) réclame "des explications pour justifier cette perte de rémunération qui est envisagée" mais indique ne pas avoir obtenu de réponse pour l’heure. L’avocat de l’organisation a par ailleurs jugé "inacceptable" ces baisses de salaires et n’exclut pas une procédure judiciaire.

Another question crossed my mind and I tried to find the answer on the internet, but probably I did not look in the right places/web sites.
I seem to remember that British shareholders were the majority in Ryanair's capital. If this is still the case, how long will FR remain an EU carrier ?
As far as I know, EU carriers may not have a majority of non EU shareholders.
