Yesterday, Ryanair announced a plan to restore 40% of its flight schedule from July 1, with a range of new safety measures including fewer checked bags, temperature checks at the airport and mandatory face masks or coverings.
Mr Dawson said he is concerned about Ryanair’s plans, saying that it is “too early” to return passengers to airports without “precise information on what happens to a consumer from the time they go to the airport to the time they sit on the aircraft”.
“Who is going to take the temperature of people, because that will have to be done,” he asked.
“What’s the protocol going through the airport? Who’s going to marshal the two-metre social distance? Who’s going to marshal the boarding?”
Mr Harris said yesterday he wants to see new laws introduced, after one-third of people arriving at Dublin Airport recently did not fill in forms properly about where they would be staying.
