t's unimplementable and unenforceable anyway, so I think people will largely ignore it, which is not good," O'Leary told BBC television, predicting that the measures would "disappear pretty quickly".
He said, however, that the 14-day quarantine would not necessarily discourage British holidaymakers travelling to southern Europe, as they could quarantine for two weeks at home upon their return before schools reopen at the end of the summer.
Ryanair on Tuesday confirmed it will return to 40% of its planned flight schedule from July 1 and will require passengers to wear face coverings and to ask crew permission to use the toilet.
The Irish airline, Europe's largest low-cost carrier, is to begin to fly 1,000 flights per day on July 1, up from a skeleton service of 30 flights per day it is currently operating, it said in a statement.
That will allow it to cover 90% of its pre-crisis network but fewer frequencies, it said. ■
