Irish budget airline Ryanair (FR/RYR) has announced it is boosting seats to Malta, Ibiza & Palma by 200,000 following their status change to the green travel list.
Ryanair made the announcement of the extra capacity alongside calling on the UK Government to add Cyprus, the Canaries and the Greek Islands to the green list where it says Covid case rates are equally low.
Ryanair’s Dara Brady said: “This announcement is a small step in the right direction and while we welcome the addition of Malta & the Balearics to the UK’s green list, we urge the Govt to immediately add equally safe destinations such as Cyprus, the Canaries & the Greek Islands, and also to immediately allow vaccinated UK & EU citizens to travel freely between the UK & the EU without restrictions.
“We are pleased to announce 200,000 extra seats to Malta, Ibiza & Palma throughout July, August & September. UK families can book a well-earned summer holiday safe in the knowledge that if their plans change, they can move their travel dates up to two times with a zero-change fee up until the end of December 2021.“
