Ryanair has called on its customers to follow a new set of simple guidelines that will help to protect the health of passengers and crew as it resumes 1,000 daily flights from 1 July. These measures include new compulsory rules to help to prevent any spread of Covid-19, as well as recommendations for passengers to limit interactions, and improved health & cleaning procedures on the aircraft:

  • Mandatory Masks – customers to wear face masks/coverings at all times in the terminal and on board the aircraft; Ryanair crew to wear face masks for the whole duration of the flight, including boarding and landing.
  • Temperature Checks – on all persons entering airport (prior to check-in/ security screening), customers also urged to check their temperature prior to departing home.
  • Hand hygiene – customers & crew encouraged to regularly hand wash and use hand sanitizers throughout airport terminals before boarding.
  • Pre-Airport Check-In & Boarding Pass – customers encouraged to check-in online and download boarding passes via the Ryanair app.
  • Self-Service – bag drops limited to self-service in all airports where service is available. Customers also to self-scan their boarding passes when boarding.
  • Limited Baggage – customers urged to minimise baggage – preferably to 2 carry-on bags only.
  • Fast Track & Priority Boarding – use of the fast track service to reduce queuing times at airport security and Priority Boarding to reduce interaction.
  • No queuing – during boarding no customers will be allowed to dwell in boarding stairwells or air bridges; queuing will not be allowed on board at toilets.
  • Cashless Payments – card payments only for all inflight purchases and airport fees/charges.
  • Limited Trolley Service – a limited inflight Getaway Cafe service will operate offering pre-packaged snacks and drinks; Ryanair’s Runway Retail inflight magazine will be only available on the Ryanair app.
  • Aircraft Sanitization – all aircraft disinfected daily with hospital grade disinfectant chemicals that are effective for over 24 hours.
  • HEPA filters – fleet fitted with state of the art filtering system, which removes airborne particles and recycles air flow every 3-4 minutes.
