Travel restrictions have led to a sharp decline in the number of travelers, with 500,000 in the first quarter, up from 41.9 million in the same period last year. The fall was 99%.

Ryanair shares fell 4% on Monday 27 July. Stock prices of other European travel companies also fell on concerns over new travel restrictions in Europe.
