Ryanair is to cancel around a quarter of its Italian flights over the next few weeks due to the coronavirus.

They were scheduled to take off during a 3 week period from Tues 17th March to Wed 8th April.

Affected passengers were notified today.

Ryanair says it will continue to monitor bookings carefully, and will continue to flex its schedules in response to this developing situation.

It does not expect these cancellations to have a material impact on its earnings for this year.

Ryanair Group CEO, Michael O’Leary said "there has been a notable drop in forward bookings towards the end of Mar, into early Apr. It makes sense to selectively prune our schedule to and from those airports where travel has been most affected by the Covid-19 outbreak."

"We will make sensible cuts to our schedules over the comings weeks to reflect weaker bookings, and changing travel patterns. All affected customers will be advised of any schedule changes at least 14 days in advance."
