Ryanair Chief Executive Michael O’Leary has blasted the British government for mismanaging the Covid-19 crisis, and hit out at fresh measures for quarantining travelers coming from abroad.
“It’s idiotic and it’s unimplementable. You don’t have enough police in the UK,” O’Leary told BBC radio.
“This [is] the same government that has… mismanaged the crisis for many weeks.
Last week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that all travellers arriving in Britain will be quarantined for 14 days. The measure is expected to take effect in the end of the month.
O’Leary had previously criticized the idea of quarantine on arrival as “unenforceable.”
“I think people will largely ignore it, which is not good,” he told the media last week,” adding that he believes that the measures will “disappear pretty quickly.”
