Under current rules, anyone arriving into the UK from overseas, with the exception of Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, must enter into a period of self-isolation where they can not leave their home unless in an emergency.
Arrivals must hand over the address of the home they plan to isolate in, and may be visited by officials at any time.
Anyone found to be in breach of the quarantine could face a fine of up to £1,000.
However, the Ryanair CEO says that the rule is both “irrational” and “ineffective”.
Mr O’Leary said: “I want the travel quarantine overturned because it is irrational, ineffective and unimplementable.
“An effective quarantine can work but the problem with the UK Government is they have been late to every party.
“They were late to lockdown, they were letting people in for Cheltenham and European football matches.
“They have been late at almost every hand’s turn and now they are introducing a quarantine that is clearly a political stunt.
“Simply because it is not a quarantine, it has no medical effect and if you do fill in the form on arrival today, all you give is your mobile number.”
