Lower Bag Fees, Bigger Check-In Bags And Fewer Boarding Delays
Ryanair today (11 Jan) has again emailed customers traveling from Mon Jan 15th next reminding them that its new carry-on bag policy comes into force in 4 days’ time which will mean:
– Lower check-in bag fees (down from €/£35 to €/£25 per check-in bag)
– Bigger check-in bag allowances (up from 15kg to 20kg)
– 2 free carry-on bag allowance for all customers continues
– Non-priority customers can bring 2 free carry-on bags but will be required to put the bigger of the 2 bags in the hold – free of charge – at the boarding gate to avoid boarding delays and/or baggage offloads.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“We hope that all our customers will enjoy these new bag rules which are centred around lower checked bag fees and bigger bag allowances. All Ryanair customers will still be free to bring 2 free carry-on bags but because of our heavily booked flights (94% load factors), we don’t have space on board for this many wheelie bags so we will ask non-priority customers to put their bigger bag in the hold – free of charge – from Monday 15 Jan in order to eliminate boarding delays and improve our industry leading on-time departures.
These changes will cost Ryanair up to €50m pa so we hope our customers will enjoy and welcome them.”
