Italy are threatening to ban Ryanair from their airports over their alleged non-compliance with coronavirus rules.
Italy’s civil aviation authority ENAC accused the budget airline of “repeated violation of anti-Covid-19 health measures drafted by the Italian government and in force to protect passengers’ health.”
Italy does not require airlines to social distance of one metre if safety measures are taken, such as mandatory wearing of face masks.
The Dublin based airline has been accused for failing to meet these requirements by ENAC. They warned that if “violations of the rules” continues then they prevent Ryanair from flying in or out of the country.
In a statement Ryanair said the claims made by ENAC are “factually incorrect” and insisted they are “committed to the highest level of safety for our passengers and crew at all times.”
The airline added that their procedures are “in line with the safety recommendations and measures set out by the Italian government.”
