A statement on the company's website says: 'Ryanair apologises sincerely to all customers for these schedule disruptions, which are caused by national Government restrictions and the latest decision of the Italian Government to lockdown the entire country to combat the Covid-19 virus.'

The move comes as new, enhanced screening is being brought in for all flights from regions affected by coronavirus.
