Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has cancelled up to 25 per cent of its Italian short haul flights, including from Georgia, between March 17 and April 8. 

The airline company attributed the flight cancellations to the spread of the coronavirus, which has resulted in a drop in bookings over late March and early April period and also an increasing number of passenger no-shows on flights. 

Ryanair said that all passengers had been notified by SMS and email about this decision.

The company said the customers would be offered rebooking, refunds or another flight.

To note, last week Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air also reduced the number of flights to several destinations in Italy. 

Meanwhile, as of today 25 patients remain at the Tbilisi infectious disease hospital, of which 11 are new patients, announces the hospital.

The samples of new patients are sent to the Tbilisi Lugar Lab and the results will be known later today.
