Ryanair expects Britain to follow other European countries, withdrawing plans for quarantine in the coming weeks, said company CEO Michael O’Leary, in an interview today, referring to a "big rise" in British holiday bookings…….
He said that the course of the detention in recent days has made him "reasonably convinced" that the planes of the large low-cost airline will have completeness 50-60% when it will reopen in July with the 40% of its fleet or about 1.000 flights a day.
Reservations are valid for all major holiday destinations – such as Croatia, of France, of Greece, of Portugal and Spain – added Ryanair's chief.

"Britain and Ireland will either stop (the quarantines) either silently or as another measure of relaxation in the following 1-2 weeks. I'm convinced of that. ", said Ryanair's CEO. "It simply came to our notice then, because people are just going to ignore them. We have seen a big rise in bookings for our flights from Ireland and Britain to Spain, Portugal and Italy over the weekend and that looks set to continue this week. ", added.
