The Irish Government has a so called green list of countries for the pandemic. These are ones you can travel to without having to quarantine upon return. Since the original green list was published, it has been updated just once.
Countries were removed and others were added recently and it still features very few countries. This has not helped to add anything to air travel to and from Ireland, which remains far below other European countries.
An Irish Government Job?
Ryanair tend to advertise their job postings on LinkedIn as many businesses do. Swinging by the site, I discovered a new job posting. It is not unusual for the low fares airline to advertise new roles on the weekend and this one is slightly different to the usual. You can check it out below.
The green list produced by the Irish Government doesn’t appear to make much sense. From 21 September, Cyprus, Germany, Poland and Iceland are added to the list, while Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Greece, Norway and Estonia are removed from the list. In total, there are seven countries on it and the remaining three are Finland, Latvia and Lithuania.
Michael O’Leary, the Ryanair CEO, never shies away from telling it like it is and I am not surprised the Irish airline has done something like this. As I said before, the restrictions are ruining travel in the country.
I’m curious about the one person who has applied for the role though. Will they end up actually getting a job at Ryanair? Time will tell… you just better not be from Dublin! (Due to the fact Dublin is under higher restrictions versus the rest of the country as of last night).
What do you think of the Ryanair job ad taking the piss out of the Irish Government’s handling of the pandemic? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
