New Ryanair cabin bag policy in effect from next month

in News · 14-12-2017 12:34:00 · 0 Comments

As of 15 January passengers travelling on Ryanair will only be able to take on board one piece of hand luggage, unless they have Priority Boarding.

At present all passengers may take one wheeling bag plus a small piece of carry-on hand-luggage like a ladies’ handbag, but in a month’s time that will change.
As the airline stressed: “from 15 January 2018, only Priority Boarding customers (including Plus, Flexi Plus & Family Plus) will be allowed to bring two carry-on bags on the aircraft. All other (i.e. non-priority) customers will only be allowed one carry-on bag on board. The (bigger) wheelie bag will be placed in the hold at the boarding gate.”
Ryanair’s new bags policy already includes cuts to checked bag fees (from €35 to €25) and an increase in the check-in bag allowance from 15kg to 20kg to encourage more customers to book check-in bags and reduce the volume of carry-on bags.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said: “We’re reminding our customers that from 15 January 2018, only Priority Boarding customers will be allowed to bring two carry-on bags on the aircraft. All other customers will be allowed to bring one smaller carry-on bag on board, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag will be placed in the hold (free of charge) at the boarding gate. This will speed up the boarding of flights and eliminate flight delays, alongside our new checked bag policy which offers our customers lower bag fees for a 33 percent increase in their checked bag allowance.”
