The regulator warned that if "violations of the rules" continue it could prevent Ryanair from flying to or from Italy.

Ryanair announced it has restored over 60% of normal flight schedules from 1st August, following the successful resumption of its services at the end of June.[break]


Throughout July, Ryanair have flown 4.4 million customers to destinations across Europe, reuniting friends and family, allowing commuters to get back to work, as well as jetting tourists off for post lockdown breaks to some of the continent’s most popular holiday hotspots.

As Europe’s skies get busier and traveller confidence returns, Ryanair will continue to increase its flight frequencies throughout August with more than 1,600 routes and over 11,000 weekly flights across its network.

Ryanair encourages all passengers to observe the healthy flying measures it has had in place since mid-May, including the mandatory use of facemasks and a reduced in-flight cashless service.

Ryanair looks forward to welcoming thousands more passengers on its flights in August as it continues to play its part in helping Europe’s tourism and travel industry take off again. To celebrate, Ryanair has launched a seat sale with fares available from just €19.99, for travel one way, only available on the Ryanair.com website.
