New Cabin Bag Policy Delayed Until Mid Jan 2018

Ryanair, Europe’s No 1 airline, today (24 Oct), confirmed that it will delay its new cabin bag policy until 15 th January 2018 to allow customers more time to adjust to the changes, particularly during the busy Christmas period. Ryanair’s new bags policy includes cuts to checked bag fees (from €35 to €25) to encourage more customers to check in bags and reduce the volume of carry-on bags - writes corporate.ryanair.com.

Ryanair has announced the following bag policy changes on all flights:

From 6 th September 2017:

– The check-in bag fee was cut from €/£35 to €/£25 for all bags

– The check-in bag allowance increased from 15kg to 20kg for all bags

From 15 th January 2018:

– OnlyPriority 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, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag will be placed in the hold (free of charge) at the boarding gate.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

“We will delay the introduction of our new cabin bag rules until 15 th January 2018, to allow our customers more time to familiarise themselves with the policy changes. From Jan, we will be restricting non-priority customers to one small carry-on bag (their wheelie bag will be placed in the hold, free of charge at the boarding gate) which will speed up the boarding of flights and eliminate flight delays.

We have already introduced the first phase of the new bag policy which offers our customers lower bag fees for a 33% increase in their check-in bag allowance. This will lead to fewer customers with 2 carry-on bags at the boarding gates, which is causing flight delays.

The new cabin bag policy will be implemented for all travel after 15 th January 2018, and we hope our customers will enjoy the savings of our new simplified bag policy.”

* Priority Boarding can be purchased for just €/£5 at the time of booking or added to a booking for €/£6 and is available up to one hour prior to scheduled departure.
