"After four months, it is time to get Europe flying again so we can reunite friends and families, allow people to return to work, and restart Europe’s tourism industry," Ryanair says
Ryanair will restore 40pc of its scheduled flights from July 1, with passengers asked to wear face masks and pass temperature checks, it says.
The return would see almost 1,000 flights a day across 90pc of its "pre-Covid network", subject to government restrictions on intra-EU flights being lifted and effective public health measures being put in place at airports.
Flights from July 1 are now available to book from €19.99 each way.
Since Covid-19 flight restrictions were put in place in mid-March, Ryanair has been operating just 1pc of its normal services - "a skeleton daily schedule" of 30 flights between Ireland, the UK and Europe.
A video released by the airline gives a glimpse of what flying could look like this summer, with passengers taking temperature checks and wearing face masks or coverings in terminals and on board aircraft.
