RYANAIR has raised its priority boarding and luggage fees
Ryanair has quietly raised its priority boarding and luggage fees – just months after introducing a brand new baggage policy
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.
- The cost of taking a 10kg bag or under to be placed in the hold is now €/£10 to €/£12
- The top end price for paying for priority boarding has increased from €/£8 to €/£10
- Since November, the airline no longer allows small suitcases in the hold for free
Since November 1, the no-frills airline has no longer allows passengers to take a small suitcase in the hold for free, forcing them to pay for any bag that won’t fit under the seat in front.
At that time, passengers could pay between €/£6 and €/£8 for priority boarding, which means they can take a second bigger bag into the cabin, or pay between €/£8 and €/£10 to check-in a bag up to 10kg, or €/£25 for a bag bigger than that.
