Customers Already Save Over €0.5m By Switching To Cheaper 10kg Check Bag

Ryanair today (11 Sept) confirmed that over 50% of customers with checked bags have switched to the new lower cost €8 x 10kg checked bag (from the €25 x 20kg bag), representing a saving of over half a million euro for Ryanair customers since its new cabin baggage policy went live on 1 Sep for travel on/after 1 Nov.

Ryanair’s new policy has cut check bag fees by offering a lower cost €8 x 10kg check bag (currently €25 x 20kg). This new bag policy eliminates all free 2nd gate bags, (which have been causing flight delays this summer), from 1 Nov next as follows:

  • Priority Boarding customers can continue to bring 2 free carry-on bags (1 x 10kg wheelie bag and 1 small bag).
  • Non-priority customers can only bring 1 free (small) carry-on bag from 1 Nov.
  • If non-priority customers want to bring a 2nd bigger (wheelie) bag they can buy a lower cost 10kg check bag for €8 at time of booking (currently a 20kg bag costs €25). This 10kg wheelie bag must be checked in at the airport bag drop desk.
  • All customers with checked bags can now switch from the €25 x 20kg bag to the cheaper €8 x 10kg checked bag.

 

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

“Since 1 Sept, Ryanair customers have already saved over half a million euro as they switch from our €25 x 20kg checked bag to our new lower cost €8 x 10kg checked bag option, which is now available for all flights from 1st November. This new lower cost €8 x 10kg checked bag means that checked bag income will probably decline as we deliver more savings to Ryanair customers. Up to 50% of customers will continue to bring two free carry-on bags as they travel on Priority Boarding and this new policy will speed up the boarding and cut flight delays.”
