Ryanair urges Ireland to give travellers immediate access to EU Digital Covid Certificates

Ryanair called on the Irish government. to grant vaccinated travellers immediate access to their EU Digital Covid Certificates.

Ireland announced it has moved to a 'ready' state for the issue of the Covid Certs, yet over one million fully vaccinated Irish citizens are still awaiting access to their Covid-19 certs.

 The airline says they should be allowed to travel restriction-free immediately.

While over one million Covid Certs have been issued across 16 EU countries  including Spain, Poland, Germany, Austria and Croatia,  Ireland continues to delay issuing them to its vaccinated citizens.

Over 60% of Irish adults have now received first vaccines, and 70% expect to be fully vaccinated by the end of July.

"All of Ireland's vulnerable groups are fully vaccinated and over 60% of adults have received a first dose vaccine, yet Ireland continues to impose the strictest travel lockdown in Europe," the airline says.

Ireland is lagging behind most of Europe and Transport Minister Eamon Ryan should now immediately allow vaccinated Irish citizens to get access to their Covid Certs, Ryanair says.
