Ryanair cuts more flights to Italy

Ryanair has announced further cuts to its flight schedules to/from Italy, and within Italy, in response to the Italian Government weekend “lock down” of travel to/from the Orange Zone in Northern Italy, in addition to a number of other EU countries (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Malta, Romania) restricting flights to/from Northern Italy with immediate effect.

These further schedules cuts can be summarized as follows:

  1. From 24:00hrs Tues March 10 until 24:00hrs Wed April 8, Ryanair will suspend all Italian domestic flights to/from Bergamo, Malpensa, Parma, and Treviso.
  2. From 24:00hrs Thurs March 12 until 24:00hrs Wed April 8, Ryanair will run a severely reduced schedule of international flights to/from Bergamo, Malpensa, Venice, Parma, Rimini and Treviso, which will only operate on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Any routes with multi daily frequencies (for example Stansted to Malpensa) will be restricted to 1 flight (per day) during each of these 4 days of Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon. While inbound traffic to Northern Italy has suffered large numbers of “no shows” over the past week, there are many thousands of non-Italian visitors currently in the Lombardy and other affected regions who are scheduled to return home, and Ryanair must continue to run this restricted 4 day week schedule to/from Northern Italy to repatriate these non-Italian citizens.

Ryanair continues to comply fully with WHO and national Government guidance and travel bans. The situation is changing on a daily basis, and all passengers on flights affected by travel bans or cancellations, are receiving emails and are being offered flight transfers, full refunds or travel credits.
