The video also advises Ryanair customers to check-in online and downloading your boarding pass onto your phone before arriving at the airport, as well as opting for priority boarding.
People travelling with the airline are also told to check their temperature before leaving home. This may also be checked at the airport and individuals may be advised to return home if they don't pass.
We're also being advised to use Fast Track where possible to limit queue time at security and maintain distance from other passengers.
