RYANAIR has offered all its more than 450 aircraft to EU governments for use for rescue flights and to transport vital medicines, personal protective equipment and emergency food supplies.

CEO Michael O'Leary said in a message to customers that the airline does not expect to be operating any commercial flights during April or May, with the bulk of its fleet grounded from yesterday.

Ryanair is Europe's largest low-cost carrier.
