A huge change is coming to Ryanair flights but it comes as no surprise.
The airline has officially scrapped its policy of allowing travellers to carry two free bags in the cabin after too many customers took advantage of the service.
“Always getting better” is an initiative set up by Ryanair, as part of it they allowed passengers to bring one larger carry-on bag along with one smaller bag such as a laptop, handbag or shopping bag on board their flights.
Ryanair rescined this offer as it announced that it will be reducing fees on bags that are checked in by €10 to encourage more people to check bags on their flights.
In a statement the airline said that the high capacity of customers using its service through August meant that there was not enough space in the overhead cabin’s to hold all the luggage.
To encourage more customers to check-in some bags and reduce the volume of carry-on bags, Ryanair will introduce the following bag policy changes on all flights from November 1:
- The check-in bag allowance will increase from 15kg to 20kg for all bags
- The standard check-in bag fee will be cut from €/£35 to €/£25 for this 20kg bag
- 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 to bring one smaller carry-on bag on board the aircraft, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag must be placed in the hold (free of charge) at the boarding gate.
