Ryanair will operate flights to “key holiday airports” in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Cyprus.
New safety measures include face masks to be worn on board, and a limited range of refreshments available, with a cashless system.
In a bid to persuade nervous boots, it has dropped the prices for July and August with one-way fares starting from £27) in a bid to kick-start demand.
Airline CEO Michael O’Leary said this week that thousands of British families have booked holidays in Portugal, in Spain and Italy for this summer.
Ryanair’s chief executive Eddie Wilson said: “After four months of lockdown, we welcome these moves by governments in Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus to open their borders, remove travel restrictions and scrap ineffective quarantines.
“Irish and British families, who have been subject to lockdown for the last 10 weeks, can now look forward to booking their much-needed family holiday to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, and other Mediterranean destinations for July and August before the schools return in September.
“Ryanair will be offering up to 1,000 daily flights from July 1, and we have a range of low fare seat sales, perfect for that summer getaway, which we know many parents and their kids will be looking forward to as we move out of lockdown and into the school holidays.”
