New Ryanair baggage policy from 1 November!

The Irish carrier announced today that its baggage policy will be changed from 1 of November! We summarized the most important changes of the new policy, but you can find every detail on Ryanair website too!

Ryanair is Europe’s favourite airline, operating more than 1,600 daily flights from 72 bases, connecting 189 destinations in 30 countries and operating a fleet of more than 300 new Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Ryanair has recently announced firm orders for a further 280 new Boeing 737 aircraft, as well as options for 100 more Boeing 737 MAX 200s, which will enable Ryanair to lower fares and grow traffic from 90m this year to over 150m p.a. in 2024. Ryanair currently has a team of more than 9,500 highly skilled aviation professionals, and has an industry leading 30-year safety record.

Checked-in bag:

The checked-in bag allowance will increase from 15kg to 20kg for all bags.

The standard checked-in bag fee will be cut from €/£35 to €/£25 for this 20kg bag. However at Easter, Christmas and on longer routes during the peak summer months there will be a  €/£10 supplement fee that reflects the increased handling costs of significant additional checked bags during these periods.

Hand Luggage:

Only Priority Boarding customers (including Plus, Flexi Plus & Family Plus) will be allowed to bring 2 bags, 1 normal (55cm x 40cm x 20cm) and 1 small (35cm x 20cm x 20cm) into the cabin.

All other customers will have to  put their bigger (wheelie) cabin bag in the hold (free of charge), and will be able to take their smaller bag into the cabin.

If you want to bring all your luggage on board you have to add Priority Boarding to your booking. Priority Boarding cost €/£5 at the time of the flight booking. It can be added after booking (for €/£6) up to 1 hour before the scheduled flight departure time, via the Ryanair app. 

When does the new policy start?

The new baggage policy will start on 1 November, and will apply to all bookings made before and after 1 November, and flights from that date onwards.
