  • Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has attacked the Government’s traffic light rules and called for a simplified system for foreign travel. 

    Speaking to The Independent, Mr O’Leary said: “You need to have a very simple system: if you’re double vaccinated, no restrictions. If you’re not double vaccinated, get a PCR test.

    “This monstrously stupid system, that requires passengers from Europe to be double vaccinated and get a PCR test, doesn’t help deal with the Covid problem,” he added.

    The comments add to renewed calls from the travel industry to re-examine testing protocols. Aito Director, Neal Josephides, has said of the current rules: “Rather than planned and logical, it’s as if primary school children were using playdough to decide how testing should operate, without the senior-level intellectual and practical input one would expect for such an important matter.”
