Ryanair launch COVID-19 document holder within its App
Ryanair has launched a Covid-19 Document Holder system available within the airline’s App. Ryanair passengers will be able to upload their negative PCR tests, their vaccination certificates and other documents related to the coronavirus that may be essential to travel through the European Union this summer. With the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccines taking place across Europe, it is likely the return of holiday trips to the EU in the summer of 2021.
Ryanair is confident that the EU vaccine distribution program will allow the current restrictions on travellers to be lifted in time for the summer school holidays. As EU governments will not have a vaccination passport for this summer, Ryanair is aware that some countries may require additional travel documents and, therefore, Ryanair’s new Covid-19 Document Holder guarantees that passengers will have all your coronavirus-related certificates on hand, stored and safe to present at airports during your next getaway.
Speaking on the new development within the App, Dara Brady, Ryanair’s Marketing Director said, “We are delighted to launch the Ryanair Covid-19 Document Holder as we prepare for the return of family vacations this summer. Many of our clients will be going on vacation for the first time in over a year and will have to comply with the new travel guidelines. Thus, this Covid-19 Document Holder allows customers to keep all their coronavirus-related documents (PCR test results, passenger location forms or vaccine certificates) in one place without having to worry about paperwork.”
With some European countries starting to open up again for travel, Ryanair is planning their routes for the summer. They have announced five new domestic routes in Italy. This summer, Ryanair will operate 100 routes spread across 28 airports in Italy offering 1,500 weekly domestic flights. Ryanair expect to operate over 1,800 routes across their network in Europe this summer. This will be a big increase on their 2020 schedule and just 29% lower than the number of routes served in 2019.
