Ryanair cancels flights to Poland & reduces flights to Spain

Ryanair officially the 4th largest airline in the world

Ryanair Group has said that is cancelling all flights to and from Poland from the 15th March to 31st March in response to the Polish Government putting the country into lockdown in an attempt to halt the spread of Coronavirus.

The move will affect all airlines in the group which operate to the region including Ryanair (FR/RYR), Ryanair Buzz (RR/RYS) and Lauda (OE/LDM).

The group says it has also been forced to “severely reduce” the number of flights operating to Spain from midnight on the 15th March through to midnight on 19th March.

The move also includes the Balearics and Canary Islands.

Ryanair said “This is a fast-moving and complex situation and the safety and well-being of our people and customers is our main priority. We will continue to comply fully with all WHO and EASA guidelines and we will follow any travel restrictions that are imposed.

Ryanair Group Airlines apologise sincerely to all customers affected by these Government Restrictions in order to combat the Covid-19 virus.”

Ryanair says that it is contacting all affected customers by email to advise them of their options and has urged customers not to call them.
