Ryanair fined €4.2 million for not refunding flights which were cancelled because of Covid-19

Italy has fined Ryanair the amount of €4.2 million after it concluded that it had failed to refund the money paid by its clients for flights which were cancelled because of Covid-19 after June 2020.

The Italian regulator found that the Irish airline was unfair when it offered vouchers instead of refunds for those whose flights were cancelled.

This was not the first time that Italy has found Ryanair guilty after in 2019 it fined the airline €3 million for deciding that small carry on bags can be taken on board for free but on the condition that they have to be placed under the seat in front.

Over the last few days the Italian authorities. also fined the British airline Easy Jet €2.8 million and the Spanish airline Volotea €1.4 million for the same reasons.
