Ryanair Holdings PLC said Monday that it will extend the company's limited flight schedule to April 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The budget airline said that over 90% of its fleet will be grounded in the coming weeks, and that flight routes will be operated daily or weekly. Most EU countries have now imposed flight bans or other restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Ryanair says it will comply with these restrictions at all times.

"We are working with EU Governments to try to keep some minimum flight links open for emergency reasons, even though the passenger loads on these flights will be very low," the company said.
