Social Distancing Practices

These new flights come with new social distancing measures. In terminals and on Ryanair aircraft, passengers and crew will be required to wear face masks. Furthermore, passengers will scan their own boarding passes at the gate and are encouraged to check-in online and take their temperature at home before flying; however, there may be temperature checks at some airports.

While onboard, the seatbelt sign will on for the duration of the flight, there will be no queuing for the lavatories, and only wrapped snacks and drinks will be served.
