Ryanair has announced they have suspended all of its flights to/from and within Italy.
The news comes after the decision of the Italian Government to “lock down” the entire country to contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
As of midnight on Wednesday, March 11 until midnight on April 8, Ryanair will suspend all Italian domestic flights.
As of midnight on Friday, March 13 until midnight on April 8, Ryanair will suspend all Italian international flights.
All affected passengers have received email notices today informing them of these flight cancellations. Passengers looking for repatriation can obtain a free move to an earlier Ryanair flight operating up until midnight Friday, March 13.
Affected passengers will be able to choose between a full refund or a travel credit that can be redeemed on Ryanair flights in the next 12 months.
“Ryanair continues to comply fully with WHO and national Government guidance and travel bans. The situation is changing on a daily basis, and all passengers on flights affected by travel bans or cancellations, are receiving emails and are being offered flight transfers, full refunds or travel credits,” a spokesperson for Ryanair said.
“Ryanair apologises sincerely to all customers for these schedule disruptions, which are caused by national Government restrictions and the latest decision of the Italian Government to lock down the entire country to combat the Covid-19 virus.”
