Ryanair has announced plans to ground the majority of its aircraft fleet across Europe over the next 7 to 10 days due to covid-19 pandemic.

In a statement, Ryanair said the airline is expecting to reduce its seat capacity by up to 80% and a full grounding of the fleet cannot be ruled out.

Ryanair flies in a point to point model rather than the more traditional airline hub and spoke model where the passengers have to change aircraft in transit at a major airport, usually being able to reach more destinations this way.

It is also worthy to note Ryan air is the largest operator of the Boeing 737-800 aircraft model.
