Everything You Need to Know About Ryanair Luggage Policy Changes

 

Ryanair is introducing new luggage rules from Monday 15 January, where passengers will be charged to take a second bag into the cabin.

The carrier announced last year that the new changes would involve allowing only priority passengers to carry two cabin bags. Currently, passengers take a main bag usually a handbag or laptop bag, and a small wheelie bag into the cabin.

While it’s still free to take two bags into the plane, once the changes come into play passengers who want to carry two bags into the cabin will be required to pay £10 per return flight. Those who do not pay the £10 fee will have their luggage put into hold once they arrive at the boarding gate.

The move is seen as a way to reduce boarding delays due to lack of space in overhead lockers.

Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer, 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 two free carry-on bags but because of our heavily booked flights (94 per cent 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 January 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.”

However, passengers can still rejoice as the check-in baggage fee has dipped, from £35 to £25 per checked-in bag. The check-in allowance is also going up from 15kg to 20kg.
