Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Tom Berendsen (PPE)
 Subject: Dumping fares charged by Ryanair

In the midst of the pandemic, the Irish air carrier Ryanair has decided to slash fares to European holiday destinations with increased risks of COVID-19 contamination. For example, last week, the airline was charging just EUR 5 for flights from the Netherlands to Ibiza and Madrid.

1. Is the Commission aware that Ryanair has been charging dumping fares to European destinations designated by Member States as COVID-19 hotpots? Is it aware of other similar practices for fares to high-risk destinations?

2. Does it agree that pricing policies such as those being implemented by of Ryanair are unnecessarily encouraging travel to destinations where the COVID-19 risk is higher, thereby running directly counter to efforts to combat the virus in Europe?

3. What action will it take to counter the fare dumping practices that are undermining efforts to combat the pandemic and to promote coordination between Member States in this specific area?
