Ryanair and British Airways suspend flights to several European countries due to COVID-19

 

TIRANA, March 2 - As the fight to contain the COVID-19 continues, two major airlines in the UK, 'Ryanair' and 'British Airways', have suspended flights to several European countries. With Italy being the most affected country in Europe and France's increasing death toll, flights from the Gatwick Airport to the two countries were temporarily suspended, while flights from the London City Airport to Germany, Ireland, Austria, Belgium and the 'JFK' Airport in New York, were cancelled. 

"To match reduced demand due to the continuing coronavirus issue, we are merging a number of flights between March 16 and March 28. We will be contacting customers on cancelled flights so we can discuss their travel options, including rebooking onto other carriers where possible, full refunds or booking with BA for a later date of travel," a spokesperson for the British Airways announced. However, the airline companies will continue to operate flights to Albania as no case of virus has been identified in the country.
