Ryanair has celebrated ramping up its flight schedule by launching its lowest ever summer sale.
More than 1,000 flights a day will be operated by Ryanair, which has run a skeleton schedule since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And to kick things off the low-cost airline is releasing 500,000 seats on sale from just £19.99 for one way for travel in late August and September.
The fares are the lowest ever offered by Ryanair during the peak summer months and customers have until midnight on Friday to book.
The carrier is restoring almost 90% of its route network but frequencies will be lower than normal, with just 40% of its normal July capacity.
Passengers will have to wear face masks or face coverings as part of enhanced safety and hygiene measures.
Ryanair Group’s chief executive Michael O’Leary said: “We expect in July to carry more than 4.5 million customers, many of them families taking well earned Mediterranean holidays after the severe challenges of the Covid-19 lockdown, home schooling, etc.
“These 1,000 daily flights mark an important turning point for Ryanair and for the tourism industry of Europe, which supports so many jobs and small businesses.”
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps confirmed on Tuesday that air bridges will soon be created to allow people arriving in the UK from certain countries to avoid the 14-day quarantine policy.
A list of exempt destinations will be published later this week.
Mr Shapps also revealed that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is reviewing its position of advising against all non-essential overseas travel.
