Italy’s is threatening to ban Ryanair from flying to the country's airports over failing to follow coronavirus pandemic rules.
The country’s civil aviation authority, Enac, said last night that it was considering suspending the Irish budget airline’s permit for “repeated violations of the Covid-19 health regulations currently in force and imposed by the Italian government to protect the health of passengers”.
The airline serves 29 airports in Italy.
ENAC has raised its concerns with the Irish Aviation Authority.
Ryanair said in a statement that the claims made by ENAC are “factually incorrect” and insisted it is “committed to the highest level of safety for our passengers and crew at all times”.
