Budget airline Ryanair has announced its extending the waiving of flight change fees yet again.

It comes as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the UK amid fears of a second wave.

Now the travel firm is allowing passengers to change their booking for free for flights until November 2020.

The airline has been offering the policy throughout the outbreak, but it's now extending it for passengers.

It means if you're unable to travel, you can rebook flights for a later date until March 21, 2021.

But you will need to make the amendment at least seven days before the departure date of your original booking.

In recent months, airlines around the world have been forced to cancel flights.

Ryanair recently announced that it expects its October capacity to fall to approximately 40% of last year's levels.

The Irish firm said this was due to a fall in "forward bookings", blaming the changing travel advice on less holidaymakers planning trips.

Dara Brady, Ryanair's Director of Marketing and Digital, said: "In order to provide as much flexibility and confidence as possible for our customers this autumn, we have extended the waiving of our flight change fee to October and November bookings.

"Customers can now plan a well-deserved break knowing that if their plans change they can move their flights to any new date up to March 21, 2021, without additional fees."

However, when the FCDO changes its advice to "all but essential" to a destination, you are entitled to a full refund if the airline cancels the flight.

But a change in advice during the pandemic doesn't necessarily mean airlines will cancel their flights so it's worth constantly checking for new updates.
